New Jersey GFAF Expo

I was lucky enough to be chosen as an official expo blogger for the New Jersey Gluten and Allergen Free Expo. This is a meeting place for companies to display the many wonderful options available for people living with different food allergies.


As most of you know this is a topic near and dear to my heart. When Abby was first introduced to dairy milk and eggs as an infant she had an immediate and frightening response. As it turned out she has an anaphylactic allergy to ingestion or touch of eggs, cow's milk, tree nuts, agave and blueberries. We spent years strictly avoiding these foods and being very cautious about what we fed her. Since that time she has food challenged a few tree nuts and blueberries so these are all on her safe list. 



In addition to Abby's allergies, my niece Genna had a severe allergy to peanuts and my nephew Jordan (who linked me us with GFAF) has a severe intolerance to dairy and gluten. Life with food allergies and intolerances are no fun at all!


So, I ask you to join us at the NJ GFAF expo in Secaucus, NJ on September 6 & 7th. The expo is at the Meadowlands Expo Center and there will be a wide variety of sponsors and presenters in attendance. We are all very excited to be a part of it and I can't wait to share with you!

If you are able to attend, please leave me a comment below and I will be choosing one lucky winner of four free tickets (using a random number generator) on August 1st!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
