A New Year, A New Life

I say farewell to 2010 with some mixed emotions. I'm saying goodbye to a huge flare-up, major surgery, pain and sadness. However, I'm also saying goodbye to the year that saw me go on a cruise, get engaged and buy my (our) first house. 2010 was very transformative for me.

2011 promises to be a big one. My wedding shower is this month, and the wedding is in the spring. We're also taking a small trip to New York with my soon to be husband's job, and then a honeymoon possibly to France in the summer. Whew! I'm excited and impatient, and stressed! I can't help praying that my remission remains long enough for us to do all these things unencumbered. I can’t believe how much work goes into planning a wedding. It’s insane. It will almost be a relief to have it all done. I don’t want to wish away a time in my life that will only happen once, so I’m trying to relax and take it all in.

I will be planning to have another Crohn’s / IBD online chat soon. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll add you to my list of people who get emailed about them.

It’s been a while since I’ve made an actual informative post about Crohn’s Disease, so I’ll be working on that next.

Happy New Year to All!

Good Luck in 2011!
