Year Of Giving: Kids Fashion & Giving Back With Kidbox

I’ve officially dubbed 2019 as my year of giving, both to myself and to others.

Mid-December, I sat down to review the progress I had made towards my goals for the year and set some new ones for the year ahead.

New Snack Option For Kids With Food Allergies

I know I have hinted a few times over the last few months about the project we had been working on so I am so thrilled to finally share the details with you all! When our youngest was born with a dairy allergy, it was a game changer. We have a few food allergies in our extended family, but it had never affected what I could eat let alone the well-being of my children. I was overwhelmed upon receiving the diagnosis, and to make matters worse, our pediatrician wasn’t much help. We decided to take matters into our own hands and started a mission to make life with food allergies a little easier.

Of the four seasons, fall is my absolute favorite. The rich colors, the warm aromas, the cozy feeling of your favorite sweater, the overwhelming theme of gratitude, all the fall flavors.

Carter And His Nasal Dermoid Cyst

I owe you all an apology. I’ve been vague-booking over the last few weeks, and that’s not something I like to. In fact, it really drives me crazy. I’m so transparent with you all that it felt odd to hold back something so large in our life, but I also didn’t know how to put it all into words. It has been such a barrage of medical terms and “what ifs”, I wasn’t even sure what to say.

Now that we have been able to wrap our heads and hearts around this as a family and have some answers, I’m glad to finally share an update with you all.
