The Dreaded 14

Only recently my dreams have taken me back to my teenage years.
Without a doubt that is due to
the miracle of technology - how else would I ever
have been reconnected with my past?
We moved to PA when I was almost 14.
What an age!
If I could, I'd make a way for all the people I love
to SKIP
age 14.
But that's not to say there were no redeeming qualities about that year of my life.
After surviving that horrendous age
(wasn't that how old I was when I tried to send Bruce & Michael to their rooms?)
I still had friends
and family ties just got stronger.
So this blog is dedicated to
all 14-year-olds
all who will someday be 14
and all those who remember the dreaded 14
This picture was taken long after my time of being 14
But that would mean that Jenni was 14 at this time :)
She survived too.

guess what I found Aunt Fern and Uncle Wayne when I was 14! It was a horrible age but they were the BEST blessing :o)

WOW, you were so beautiful!!!! I'm not saying your not beautiful now, because you are. Either way I try to say it I'm probably going to sound rude but I'm really not trying to be, I just think you look super pretty in this picture.

Oh, and 14 was a horrible age. I think the next year was my turning point from being that annoying awkward teenager.
