We didn’t always look like the fabulous selves we are today.
It took a lot of growing pains and awkward phases to get ourselves to this point, right? Sometimes it’s hard not to look back at old photos and just cringe. For the people who didn’t know us back then, though, these pictures can be a totally hilarious glimpse into what we were like.
