One blog.

Me.

This post marks one year that (Almost) Perfectly Pink existed.  While the now-title did not arrive until a few weeks later, this blog still represents one year of posts.  Of conversations.  Friends.  Thoughts.  Ideas.  Life.  Pictures.  Ramblings.

I started this blog kind of on a whim.  I received a friend request from a girl through NaNoWriMo, and after I saw her blog, I decided to start my own.  On October 22nd, I wrote my first post.  It was a Tuesday night, like right now.

 This has been an amazing year, ya'll. I have loved every minute of it.  I seriously can't believe that all of you lovely people want to actually listen to my ramblings.  I have loved getting to know all of you so incredibly much.  Every comment has made my day.  Every sweet note, email, message has just warmed my heart.  I love all of you so much.

I am not the perfect blogger.  I know that very well.  I have a lot to improve on.  My procrastination gets in the way of everything; but I'm learning.  Slowly.  I plan on doing more thought-provoking posts.  Getting ahead.  Always posting on time.  And I know that I'll never do all that 100% of the time.  But I'll work on it. ;) And if you are all willing to stick with me on this crazy, bumpy, simply beautiful journey; I know we will have a blast.

Here's to many more wonderful years.

Love, Jess <3

ps.  I almost can't link to it because it's way to flattering and beautiful, but my friend Mikayla (the inspiration for the beginning of this blog) wrote a beautiful post on our friendship.  You can check it out HERE!
