Gluten Free Vegas without the Blackjack

Okay, this post is completely unrelated to Vegas, but as we were leaving our gluten-free get together put together by Cēliebo, who makes gluten free travel cards and vlogs about GF life, she said: "It's like Vegas without the blackjack." I guess you had to be there, but we shared so many funny stories that at the end we all had to be sworn to secrecy.

It was such, such fun that you can only partake of if you have been living a gluten free life--which makes it even more special because the instant bond you have with other GFers is pretty hard to beat. Glow Gluten Free said it best when she said "It's lemonade from lemons" because there are so many gluten free people who really find their passion in life after figuring out they can't eat gluten. I am wondering if by sharing the fact that we were all sworn to secrecy if I am violating some part of the pact we made. But I think in the spirit of blogging and tweeting, everyone will forgive this post as long as I leave the contents of our Vegas get together secret.

Leaving Celiebo's with TWO Gluten Free Go Picnic snack packs for my kids that she so generously gave me, I was happy in a way that I have only known since becoming gluten free. And what fun to eat hot off the press GLOW gluten free cookies which were extra delicious and baked specially for an upcoming cookie event while sharing gluten free gossip. I am adding Cēliebo's video blog to my blogroll and I look forward to seeing her vlogs daily now. For those who weren't able to attend the Vegas without the Blackjack event, here is a list of my new gluten free friends. And if you missed this super top secret event, you can always find us at the New York City Celiac Disease Meetup Group or at next week's Celiac Center gala benefit. (I have also posted twitter names because mostly we share our gluten free gossip via tweets.)
