LOVE STORIES AND GLUTEN FREE
I am blessed to have been married to my husband for almost 24 years! We were young when we started dating and really grew up together. I know that wouldn’t work for everyone but it really has been great for us.
We love traveling and sailing together as well as conquering everyday life and raising our two daughters. In a little over a year, we will begin a new phase of life, empty nesting! It seems like they were just little a few minutes ago…
THE LOVE ARTICLE FROM GLUTEN FREE GLOBALICIOUS LIFE
I was asked to submit some photos and answer some questions for Gluten Free Globalicious Magazine’s article for Valentine’s Day on love.
It’s a great read about living life as we do with me having Celiac and my awesome hubby supporting whatever we need to do to be successful.
Seriously, I am a romantic at heart and I know I have been blessed by the most wonderful hubby but I really couldn’t imagine how my life would be without him.
HERE’S THE ARTICLE:
Enough gushing about how much I love my hubby. Here is the article.

SPEAKING OF LOVE-
There are many ways to share your love with your family, friends, and yourself.
Self-love is such an important part of life that many people forget about or take for granted. In order to care for your family, you need to love yourself so you take care of yourself and that allows you to be the best you possible.
This year I didn’t want to make any new resolutions. I wanted to look at my life and make some changes based on how I could love people more and love myself more.
I committed to working out somehow 5 days a week. It doesn’t have to be a crazy hard workout but I have to do something. I have discovered how much I missed doing yoga. It’s possible that by the end of the year I will be able to do a handstand again without killing myself or other people around me lol.
MY RECENT LESSON ON SAYING YES:
I also decided to say yes to more things that I had missed out on or things that I didn’t do because I was afraid to do them. This is really hard for me. I am not always my best self during these things and I am working on it. When we were recently in St. Barts, My hubby wanted to go on a hike so I agreed. I like nature walks but this was totally different. I wasn’t prepared for the incline and the amount of physical work it would take for me to finish this hike. We didn’t bring water, again because I thought a nature walk… flat…. only like a half an hour…
I love my husband for putting up with my complaining about the hike and for talking me off the ledge and getting me through it. We made it all the way to the top and had the best photos with amazing views. But I wasn’t the best me on the way up. So- I have some things to work on. I realized this at the top and we had a good laugh. The way down was much more fun and we laughed and had a good time. I wasn’t afraid of the way down because I had already experienced the trail on the way up.
Life lesson.. I said yes but wasn’t prepared so I wasn’t my best self. But we got amazing pictures and it ended up being fun. New goal for the year is to get in better shape.. see the first part of loving yourself.
