"Her dress is kind of short, and she's staring dead straight at the camera and laughing" -- Katherine Nolan

Good morning, Today marks a very important day in the life of this blog---Smart Pretty and Awkward is one whole year old today. The last year of writing SP&A has been a wonderful experience, especially as you all have given me suggestions and ideas to make it better for you to read. I remember being very excited when I first had over 50 hits a day for a whole week. Now the blog has grown into something much larger with thousands of hits each day. I will forever be grateful to all my readers who have helped grow the blog over the past year by writing it about it in their own blogs; by retweeting on twitter; by joining the Facebook fan page; by buying SP&A merchandise; or by telling their friends.

I love the emails and messages I get every day--all make me smile and I try my best to respond to each and every one. I enjoy writing this blog very much; I am so happy you enjoy reading it.

Thanks for coming along with me on this journey! I look forward to another year together with you!

xoxo Molly Ford
