Weeds growing around the flowers.
Sometimes the only way to break the curse
is to leave it all behind.

We have a lot we should have done today,
but we decided to do what was most needed.
Thank you, Alton Brown, for the normal-tasting gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe. Who would have ever known they were made from brown rice?!? (I substitute 1 scant cup sucanat for the brown sugar.) They are one of our faves!
If you've never stared off into the distance, then your life is a shame.

Oh, those faces that I love...
One of our favorite places here is the pizza shop on the beach. This is my first trip post-GF, so I brought my own crust to ask if they would put on toppings and bake for me. BUT, they had a gluten-free pizza! (You can see below how excited I was :) AND, it tasted just as good as ever. No one could tell a difference. Thank you, Lord!
Yes, we give our kids a can of switch and a sucker, then strap them in the car for a 1 1/2 hour drive. That's what you do when it's 90 degrees, and you don't have air conditioning, I guess :)
Hello to another full week,
working on the house and potty-training-take-97.
We didn't get rid of our weeds today, but we gained so much more... perspective.
