1 Year Old






















My blog is one year old. I just can't believe how hard time goes. 

I started blogging in March. (this post is kinda late.) So, it's one year ago. 

I created this blog, and wrote my first post, which is akward, you can't really call it a first post.
And then I got my first comments, which was really fun. Naomi, Rae, Ruth, Abby and Ivy Miranda, you where my first five followers, thank you. So, through the past months and weeks, a lot of people followed me. Thanks!

I have 22 followers.
I have written 121 posts.
I have 9,866 pageviews.
I received 748 comments.
I changed my header a lot... :)


























































Thank you all for the comments, they make me smile, the following, <3 and for reading all of my posts. THANK YOU ALL!!! <3 <3 <3
