Why not?

That is the question at hand. Why not? Why not document the crazy world I currently live in? Why not share how I manage to feed three children with very different food allergies? Why not give a glimpse into the world of allergies and how it's an awful world? So, here I am. I can't think of any answer besides let's do this.

We have been dealing with allergies for about 7 months. Seven months of side way stares. Seven months of doctors appointments. Seven months of rashes, reactions and ointments. Seven of the longest months I have ever experienced. All of my children are anaphylaxis free (knock on wood) but rashes, swelling and belly issues can sure drive any parent or caregiver to drink.

So with that said, I am resurrecting the blog. As you can see it hasn't been used in a very long time. I'll throw in some lovely recipes, a few everyday things and I'm sure I'll rant and rave. I don't care if anyone ever reads, I'm using this to vent and maybe I'll get someone that can share a experience or two with allergies.  As I sip on my tea (the only soy free tea in the house) and type this out... I already feel a little better.

Thanksgiving Cards from Shutterfly

Stationery card
View the entire collection of cards.
I absolutely adore giving cards for absolutely any reason. I had a coupon code from Shutterfly that was about to expire so I decided to browse the website for some "card-spiration". I haven't done our holiday pictures yet so Christmas cards were not an option. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw these beautiful Thanksgiving cards! We had recently gone to a pumpkin patch and I took these gorgeous pictures of my girls... perfect Thanksgiving themed pictures! Can't wait to get the cards to mail out this Thanksgiving season!
