As I said in my last post, Mr. GFE and I were on a road trip for Mother’s Day so it was a bit of an atypical one, but I saw my mom before we left and we will see Son in a few weeks. And one set of friends had flowers for me for Mother’s Day when I woke up and another couple who we traveled to see that evening had strawberry daiquiris at sunset, after which we shared dinner together. So “it’s all good.” I hope you all had lovely Mother’s Days, too!
And welcome back to Gluten-Free Wednesdays (GFW)! GFW is the weekly blog carnival event that I co-host with my friends Linda of The Gluten-Free Homemaker and Lynn of Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. All gluten-free food-related posts are welcome for this event, so GFW is a great opportunity to learn about living gluten free on many levels. Check out all the links throughout the event and link up your gluten-free food posts if you’re a blogger. Link up to just one of our blogs, but your post(s) will show up on all three!
