Same Maple Creemie but Something's Different


If I ever needed proof of all the amazing changes in my life over the last three years, well, I have it.  For no particular reason I decided to begin taking photos of me with the most amazing maple creemie known to Vermont at the fair up in the Northeast Kingdom.  Honestly, I think the first photo I asked Shawn to take so I could write a blog post about how amazing the creemie was.  Then the following year I decided it would be funny to have a photo of me with the same creemie, but extremely pregnant.  Of course by this year I just had to go to the fair and take a third picture of myself with a maple creemie, only this time I'd also have Emily.  

We don't even live near the fair anymore, either.  Its more than an hour drive north for us, but that hasn't stopped me from getting the exact same creemie and taking a photo in the exact same spot.  Initially I thought that the series of shots would end.  It seemed perfect enough, one pre-pregnancy, one during, and one post, but now I have an idea for a forth photo.  There must be another photo next year with Emily holding her own creemie next to me.  Perhaps then the series will be complete? 

Also, this series is great proof of my efforts to lose the baby fat.  I honestly didn't realize how good I looked until I saw these three photos together.  Heck, I think I am more slim now than I was pre-baby and I never realized it before now...

That's why I love doing things like this.  Noticing the little things, seeing how things have changed overtime is just so awesome.   Most importantly this is perfect proof that you don't need a special occasion to start taking a photo series of your own.  Maple creemies sure do help, though!

I was just thinking, wow, you look fantastic! I'm sure the maple creemie is delicious, but that's what I noticed. Good for you. :)

Hi Jen,
Were you at the fair on Saturday evening, around 6pm? I saw someone who looked like you with a child who looked like Emily. It was near the Keeghan Nolan concert, and it looked like the baby was just days after taking her first steps. Was that you and Emily I saw?????

I LOVE this set of photos! I think you will need to continue doing this every year!!! What a neat way to show how things change over the years! I bet in next year's photo, Emily will be holding a cone. You do look great!

You look fantastic! And as I'm big, pregnant, and focused on food, I have to say the maple creemie looks fantastic, too. :-)

Thanks Guys!

And Carol I don't think that was me you saw... this was taken at the Barton Fair just before I went on vacation. But, you never know. Shawn and I love fairs so we tend to be at many of them! Now that we have Emily I really like to go, because of the animals. She loves them!
