Thank you Healthy Happy Life readers for making 2012 a fantastic year! My blog had over 12 million pageviews in 2012 - over 28,000 fans on Facebook and over 100,000 followers on Twitter - and that means many people were checking out how delicious, rewarding and fun a vegan life can be!
My other site, Finding Vegan also had an amazing year! The site reached over 20,000 posts! Recipes submitted from bloggers all over the web. I was also happy to continue to bring vegan recipes to Disney's Babble.com site as a Family Kitchen daily content contributor.
I was so glad to share my vegan creations with you guys and I loved hearing from all of you about how my recipes turned out and how your friends and family enjoyed them. You guys are what makes my job so special and rewarding. So thank you! I am excited to venture into 2013 when I will share more recipes, wellness tips and bring you guys my first book: 365 Vegan Smoothies, published by Penguin Group!
