Gluten-Free Globetrotter on the Move!

Hey everyone,

This is an apology letter. It was Celiac Awareness Month in the United States and I only posted three times in May. My bad and I am sorry! My only excuse is that I am on the move. Literally.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter on the move

Surrounded by moving boxes* (see below for poster details)

After living in Queens New York, the BEST place in the United States according to Lonely Planet, for 11 years, I am moving to Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This is only about 4 miles from where I currently live, but for those of you who know New York City it is worlds away! Brooklyn has become the trendy place to live in New York City which is exactly why I did NOT want to live there. Yet, I was convinced that it isn’t all hipsters and strollers and that it is actually a really fun place to live.

I am excited my move corresponds with my favorite season. I can’t wait to spend this summer exploring all of Greenpoint, neighboring Williamsburg, and beyond! I am excited that I kicked off this past weekend checking out Manhattanhenge, a natural phenomenon unique to New York City, from the park down the block from my house. I am giddy that I can watch the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks from that same park in just a few weeks. I am swooning over my new roommate, my boyfriend of 2 years Victor.


Look at the view from Transmitter Park, Greenpoint

My travels on a plane might be limited this summer but my travels by foot, bus, bike, and subway will be plentiful. I can’t wait to explore all of the gluten-free options that Brooklyn has to offer. I would love your tips! Please post them in the comments below.

So it is with my apologies but hopefully a good excuse that I haven’t posted yet you stick with me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Happy Summer everyone!

    Dear Erin,
    No apologies necessary. All the best in your new location.


  2. Never apologize for living your life! You both look so happy and your new place already looks great! Love the windows and the hardwood floor. 🙂
