Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Sayofuckingnara 2011.

2011 has come and gone but it will never be forgotten.

Last year at this time, I would never have pictured my life as it is today. Here I sit, living the single life with a friend of mine, in a small apartment, without Eleanor by my side. My life changed pretty drastically in the year 2011. I risked a lot, I lost a lot, I cried a lot.  But with that loss came growth, new experiences, and deeper connections (I’m talking to you Melis) that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.  And as I continue to adjust to this new life, I thank god for good friends, family, and wine. Can’t forget the wine.

So cheers to a New Year filled with change, support, whoopee pies, laughter, and love.

You thought I was kidding about the wine.
