Today I have been thinking about my good friend Ali's post about getting a new driver's liscense, because I had to do the same thing today. Thanks to her warning, I was fully prepared to turn over me old Utah liscense, which was issued October 2000. That's right - I was 16 years old when this lovely picture was taken.
Now, rather than get a new liscense when it was time, I decided to just renew it. Hence the "Under 21" sticker remained in the upper right corner. Cute, I know. Additionally, I never got around to getting a new liscense after we got married. So on my Utah driver's liscense, I was a 16 year old Stephanie Andersen, under 21, 115 pounds, and happy to be a junior in high school.
My, how things have changed. Today, I am Stephanie Webb, age 24 (although it doesn't say my age on there, I thought I would tell you anyway), over 21, well over 115 pounds (and yes, I lied about my weight on my new liscense...please say you did too), and happy to not be a junior in high school anymore. And although one eyebrow is higher than the other (as it is in every single picture I have ever taken...I don't know why) and I look like I have goiters on my very round cheeks, at least I had a good hair day. And that's definitely more than I can say for my 16-year-old self. Watch for another update on my photogenic self in 2013, when this liscense expires. Oh, the landmarks of my life.
