Happy sweet 16 Lauren!
I remember when I was turning 16. At 16, although still a youth, I started to feel like an adult. The excitement of getting my driver's license... I was the first one in ICBC on my birthday. The feeling of freedom to drive and do your own thing.
There is definitely something special about turning 16. I myself had photos taken at that time. It's amazing how different you are when you get older, looking back at those days. Your interests are so different, yet similar. It's really a time that shapes who you are when you get older.
