Then and Now: Re-Creating the Moments

I couldn't help myself as we were in Romania (what feels like so long ago boo hoo) to re-create some of my favorite snapshots from my first go around in Romania almost five years ago. It's fun to see the differences. 

Then, at the REAL Dracula's castle (one of my favorite spots in Romania found in the gorgeous Carpathian mountains):
And my triumphal return:
Then, in Cluj-Napoca: dear Victor, who really needed a haircut:

 Returning to Cluj, looking fine and fresh (and tan, which helps with the looking fine part):

Then, in Cluj, winter 2008. Single, and not willing to mingle, because I'm too busy preaching the good word of God:

Returning, this time with a husband of my very own:
^^^so happy to be in this lovely city that we love^^^

 Thanks for indulging me. I just love reminiscing and seeing what a difference a few years make. Makes me feel grateful and blessed and sentimental. Like sand in the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

  1. I love the winter picture at the castle. You look the same, but I must say, Victor in Cluj looks so young as a missionary! It must be the hair.
