I’m excited about 2010. It’s going to be a good year. How could it not? I mean, just look at that number—round, even, balanced. It looks like a good place to start.
This is a particularly good thing since I think 2009 wasn’t the exactly easiest year for a lot of people. I know it wasn’t always for me. That’s not to say it wasn’t a good year and that a lot of good things didn’t come out of it, it was just a lot of work to get through it all. It was a year of transitions. I foresee 2010 being a year of happenings.
Of course I may be a little biased. I am getting married this year afterall. Clearly a major happening. (Okay, I promise not to bring up the wedding every single day for the next ten months.)
There is also going to be a lot happening on this blog. As you may know, I’m leaving my job (my last day is Friday!) to spend more time here. I want to make this space bigger yet more focused. I’ve been speaking to a lot of wonderful g-freers lately and the input has been very valuable. These conversations have reminded me that this isn’t an easy or obvious lifestyle for everyone. I tend to forget that I was an avid cook and a burgeoning foodie before I had to give up something that is practically a staple in most western diets. For people who don’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I can see how it could be difficult to figure out where to start. The improvements to the site will strive to offer more comprehensive resources for those who are newly gluten-free, provide inspiration for GF veterans, and tempt even the gluten-tolerant into expanding their pantries and palates.
