There were also some notable people in the field of Celiac Disease awareness present. I had a wonderful time playing the Sing Down game with Kirsten Boncher, mother of two and blogger on her own site (link below). She and her family are gluten free, dairy free, and soy free like me! I also met Nicole Hunn, author of Gluten-free on a Shoestring, and Craig Pinto, former kicker of the New Jersey revolution arena football team from 2008-2010 and founder of Kicking4Celiac. He is also a Guinness World Book of records holder!
It was such a wonderful weekend and I was so sad to leave! I made so many wonderful friends and I pray I will see them again soon. The most rewarding part of the trip was when a little girl, named Khloe, looked at me and said that her mother told her I could not eat wheat just like her. I told her that was true and she smiled, threw her arms around me and said, ":Will you eat with me, Mrs. Alaska?" I knew God had put me in the right place at the right moment. Knowing you are not alone is the biggest step in living with Celiac Disease!
