High-res Feet Up Thursday? 

Back in the airport today, this time headed to DC to see The Gentleman Caller. 

Usually my airport attire is a bit slouchier, but hey, new dude & dinner plans call for a bit of effort I think. 

Working out of DC for a bit and heading back next Tuesday. 

All I can say is Thank Goodness for the SkyClub.

Feet Up Thursday?

Back in the airport today, this time headed to DC to see The Gentleman Caller.

Over the past few months I have been having quite a bit of stomach problems that have led me to eliminate gluten from my diet to see if that helps solve the problem. I’ve been on the gluten-free train for about 3 weeks now and I will say it’s made a difference. 

It hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be, but there are definitely moments where I am not pleased about this route—I’m looking at you cupcakes & delicious baked goods! 

I am making an appointment with my allergist to run some tests and see if it is actually an allergy and if not, then I’ll head to the gastroenterologist to explore other possible causes. 

My mom has been an all-star though. One of the awesome things about her is when you decide you need to try something, she backs you whole-heartedly. She has gone to Whole Foods and Publix, scouring the aisles for gluten-free options. She made me special cookies for Easter so I could have a sweet treat with the family and overall she is just really considerate about helping me stick to this plan. My sisters have given me tips and suggestions and have gone to bat for me in restaurants as I try to navigate the menu.

The Gentleman Caller put up with me delivering special snacks to his apartment for when I go to visit this week—which is not a big deal, except that I accidentally ordered a case instead of a box… So now he has enough supplies to last him a year. Oops! 

The support really helps when I want to cave in. I know that I have people in my corner who will talk me down when all I want is the bread pasta cookie beer all the gluten. 

I’ve discovered that if needed, I can give up gluten. But if you try to take my cheese, well, then them’s fighting words.

And so it has been ever since." —Frederick Buechner #happyeaster
