There are a few girly 2000s movies that get better every single time you watch them. 13 Going on 30 is one of those flicks and has to be on my list for favorite films of all time! It's kind of a two-in-one time capsule because it is originally set in the 80s and then moves back to 2004.

I don't know what it is, but there is a unique quality to 13 Going on 30 that makes me thoughtful, happy, sad, reflective and everything in between. It's uplifting and it makes me think about living in the moment and being more present. It is such a universal experience to want to grow up when you're a kid and then wish you could go back to being a kid when you finally get older.

The nicest part of this movie is it ends on a good note! I hope that doesn't spoil anything; I mean, it's been out for almost 20 years now!
