Gluten-free homeschooling mom from Idaho.
This is my real life byline.
…I did not see this coming. 😂
In the last 7 months, we moved across the country to Boise, Idaho. We decided to homeschool. And we found out one of the kids has celiac disease.
A few weeks ago I went on a trip to Nashville, and it was the first time I’d been “back east” since our move. Someone asked me where I was from, and let’s just say that “Idaho” wasn’t in the top three answers that came to mind. In my defense, when someone here in Boise asks me where I’m from, the correct answer is “North Carolina,” so I haven’t had a lot of practice being from here.
See also: saying things like “we homeschool” without feeling a (totally unnecessary…right?) weight of wondering how that’s going to land on whoever I’m talking to.
And while the kids have been so sweet and cheerful about the eradication of all gluten from our home, and I’m the biggest cheerleader of our new lifestyle, on the inside I’m a leeetle more mournful. BECAUSE BREAD THOUGH.
So – because I want to embrace these life twists, and because I usually find out what I’m thinking when I write about it, and because a year later I still wistfully think of things I would post if I was posting on my blog – I’m back! I’m going a little more blogging-circa-2008, so it’s not all gonna be food, and it’s not all gonna be “on-brand,” and there’s no detailed posting schedule recorded in my planner. (Is that an involuntary happy dance or a nervous twitch I’m experiencing?? Unsure.)4
