    Awesome list and blog Sam! (Although I take issue with being a celiac sucking – I’ve actually found it led me to a more healthy lifestyle overall. One thing I learned early: make my own bread. GF bread just isn’t as good as regular unless it’s homemade!) I love your suggestions to laugh, smile, and look to our pets for joy. There’s a lot of wisdom in humor and in nature:-)

      Kirstie! Thanks so much for reading and enjoying! Stay tuned because I will definitely be talking more about the celiac life and healthy living because of it! Totally relate! Haven’t made my own bread yet, but I barely eat it anyway now lol!!! 🙂 Crazy to see how many people now have celiac when you feel like you’re the only one! #celiacliving

    I love this! I totally agree with so many of these things… getting outside, traveling, bucket list, puppies, all of ittt. I really like when people post ‘getting to know you’ type posts or about me sections. It’s so fun to see everyone’s unique outlook and personality. (:
