i want to tell you all about my favs and my not-so-favs, hit you up with lots of pictures and point you in the direction of some very delicious things, but first i need to tell you this funny little story.
once upon a time i attended the Gluten Free Living Show, last sunday. I had hoped to go on Friday as to make sure there were samples-a-plenty, but my little buddy dane who usually attends everything foodie with me had to take a sick day from school and wasn't up to the outing. Saturday wasn't an option, as I had to pretend I was superwoman and walk a 5km race in the city called "Color Me Rad", completely in denial of the fact that I was, at this point, 8 months pregnant. we are definitely on a tangent but since we're already there, you might as well enjoy the after picture from the race...
let's get back on track. so saturday was out of the question for the show, which left only sunday. i just love that this whole weekend we're mulling over was so divinely orchestrated, so perfectly lined up so that first i would have a sweet day at home full of cuddles with my little man, then a day out with my mom and sisters doing something zany and fun, followed by a sunny sunday of sampling, interviewing, and ultimately gathering a large amount of ready-to-eat, gluten free food... only to return home and go into labour! true story.
a wonderful, beautiful, gift that only God could create was the sweetest, most precious icing on a great, gluten free cake that was last weekend. crew tucker was born last monday, just over 3 weeks early, wee little but happy and healthy!! his big brother has spent the week eating french macarons and sharing endless kisses with his much-prayed-for little brother, and we are overjoyed and so, so thankful.
thanks for your grace, talk to you very soon -
