Wow. The Last Day of 2012.

As I sit here reflecting, I am truly amazed at the journey this year has taken me on.

2012 was a year of sickness, and and a year of victory. I have Ulcerative Colitis. For 10 months in 2012, I was in a horrible Ulcerative Colitis flare. I had to move home from NYC for treatment.


However, none of the medications worked. After trying several different approaches, I finally said “enough’s enough” and decided to take my health into my own hands. I began the Specific Carb Diet, and I was slowly able to stop flaring, and get my health back. I became healthy enough that I could return to NYC and go after my dream.

Along the way, I started this blog, and I can honestly say that I am so grateful. Through this crazy “blogosphere” medium, I have gotten to know some amazing people and have made some great friends. There were days where the only thing that was keeping me going was the love and support shown by you guys, (and my family, of course). So, thank YOU for making 2012 a wonderful year.

I’m really looking forward to 2013. I can just feel that it is going to rock! I’ve got a new excitement for cooking and for my acting career!
