  1. Oh, There is my little sister and my Baby dog and Laurie!
    You were 13 when I got married too. I missed you so much and loved it when you came to visit me.

  2. This is a cute idea for a T13! When I was a child, I thought I would have lots of puppies when I grew up, but then I married a man who doesn’t like animals. Oh well!

  3. Wow, life was so simple at 13 wasn’t it? I thought I could work at a restaurant and still have everything I dreamed of…good thing I kept having birthdays to figure that out! Mine are up as well!

  4. I had the same idea when I was 13, except for the gardening and having four kids and a small house and animals. I wanted to live in a penthouse in Manhattan and be rich and fabulous. Now, I am just fabulous.
