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!


  1. Congratulations on your engagement and new house! I hope that 2011 is a wonderful year for you, your wedding day is everything you hoped for and that you are happy and healthy xx

  2. Hi there,

    Woohoo- bring on 2011! I'd love to be a part of your next chat, let me know. Plus, now if anyone has any baby/ Crohns questions, I am here for them!

  3. I'd like to be part of your next chat!

  4. Hi Crohnsmommy! Thanks for stopping by. I have added your email address to my list of people interested in the next chat. It will probably not be until after my wedding at the end of March, as I am __swamped__ !

    Hope you're feeling well!
