living in: sixteen candles

by amym

Today is the 10th anniversary of my sixteenth birthday and I could not let this moment pass without paying homage to America’s ultimate birthday fantasy, . John Hughes so totally gets teenaged girls it’s eerie. And by teenaged girls I just mean girls in general, because hello, I can still feel completely relate to Samantha Baker.

My own sweet sixteen 10 years ago was kind of drag, I was stuck in the car for 19 hours on a road trip with a friend and her family. No group of clambering nerds following me, no wild senior parties, or red trans am’s waiting for me in the driveway. Today’s birthday wish? Jake Ryan, pure and simple. –
