Well holy cow. I’m at a loss. I’m literally sitting here thinking where do I begin. I’m punting my post until tomorrow because today, I just want to say thank you. Really and truly, thank you is not enough. In the 13ish years of blogging I’ve done, I don’t recall a time when I was as taken aback as I was on Friday (and this weekend too). Overwhelmed is really the only word that I can use to describe the love, encouragement and support you gave us when we shared that Kensington has Celiac disease. I tried responding to every single email, message and DM, but I just don’t think that’s going to be possible BUT I did start a folder in my inbox and have saved each and every one because they’re so rich with information. I also read every single comment on my blog and took copious notes from all of your suggestions and recommendations. I truly wish I could squeeze each of your necks and thank you myself in person. It was so much information that it was actually overwhelming (in a positive way!!).
On Saturday, I was talking to my sweet, sweet friend Meagan who has been by my side since the very beginning, and we were both like WOW. Her family has been living g-free for over 10 years, and she has been instrumental in this process. She and I run the Mix and Match Adoption Facebook group together (which for years has been blessing me!), and it was her suggestion that we also launch one for my g-free friends too! So, quickly this weekend, we put it together. If you are currently living a gluten-free life (due to Celiac, allergies, or just as a health decision) or just interested in connecting with and learning more about gluten-free living, please feel free to join, share and do life with us online. It’s always so encouraging to me to have this community and I’ve learned through the adoption page how vital it is to have a more open platform for this kind of support. Mix and Match Mama Gluten-Free Living group is now up and we’d love for you to join. Instead of all of you just sharing your great ideas with me, now, we can all share them with each other.
Also, many of you have asked about my recipes. I will continue to post recipes every day. Some are new, some are old, some are g-free, some are not, all are easy 🙂 . My goal is to just make fantastic recipes to share with you…that happen to be gluten-free. That’s all I want to do…make easy, delicious, family-friendly recipes minus gluten.
Seriously, I have a whole post for today, but I’m going to just save that for tomorrow. In the meantime, happy Monday. I hope someone blesses you as much today as you all blessed me over the weekend. xo
