Forty Years of Living with Celiac Disease

As of today, I have officially been living with celiac disease and eating gluten-free for forty years.

But all joking aside, I use July 9, 1981 as my celiac anniversary because I have the medical records to prove it. When my mother sold my childhood home seven years ago, I came across my pediatric medical records which was basically as thick as a phone book. (Remember those?)

Happy Celiac Awareness Month

Basic RGB

 

If this isn’t a sign of the current state of the world, I don’t know what is?! It may be crazy times but there is no reason to stop educating others about celiac disease.

Happy Celiac Awareness!

It’s About Time…

Gluten-Free Globetrotter Under Construction

Notice anything different?

My blog was looking how I feel most days… OLD.

I worked with a designer on my new logo over a year ago but totally slacked on the website redesign. First, came the second cross-country move in 2.5 years. Then, came the pregnancy and baby. If those aren’t some major changes, I don’t know what is! Life happens, as we know, and this blog slipped.
