Mandy Moore, who has been the epitome of the girl next door for over a decade, turns 34 today.

From her exuberant radio-friendly pop hits to her squeaky clean performance in the tearjerker A Walk to Remember, the singer and actress was a dream girl for every kid who came of age in the 2000s.

Relive the good ol’ days with her 1999 debut single “Candy.”

At 34, Moore’s no longer a teenage queen. She now stars on the acclaimed NBC sobfest This Is Us, which nabbed her a Golden Globe nomination for her time-spanning performance as matriarch Rebecca Pearson.

But we’ll always have a soft spot for the raw side the starlet showed off for the cameras during a shoot with the late Blender magazine years ago. Above, a few snaps from our archives.

Happy Birthday, Mandy Moore! And here’s to many more!
