My Year in Food – 2012

January 1, 2013

It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone, especially a year as fantastic as 2012. For a girl who’s practically terrified of change, this year proved to be a year of change for me. Not only did I take a huge risk by leaving my previous career in an effort to find something I truly loved, but during that process I also created and launched Saratoga Food Fanatic, which was perhaps the best thing I did in 2012. This project has allowed me to pursue my dreams, even if it’s on a smaller scale right now.

When it comes to resolutions for 2013, I really would like to see this website grow and develop into something that everyone knows about. I want to be better than I am right now and I want to post more frequently, which has been a challenge for me since I started working full-time again.

The truth is Saratoga, I love you. I love you as a city and I love you as citizens. I want to show you that I love you by providing you with the best, most unique and fun reviews you could ever ask for. I want to do the digging for you when a restaurant closes or rumors are circulating about a new place coming in. I want to be a one stop destination for anything food related in the area, and ultimately, that is my new years resolution.

As I look back to my posts throughout the past six months that Saratoga Food Fanatic has been around, I wanted to highlight my favorite moments from the year. Here’s to 2012:

With that I thank you, all of you, for an amazing 2012. I wish you all a very healthy, happy and delicious 2013! Happy New Year!
