One of my best friends moved to New York City over a year ago to work in interior design, so my college roommate and I made a trip up to visit her this past weekend.
Late July, early August is one of my favorite times of year.
That might sound odd to most, but it’s the time my family packs up and vacations in Northern Michigan.
My mom and I just got back from Tampa, Fla. We went down to celebrate my grandpa’s 79th birthday. While we were there, I made it my mission to check out at least one gluten-friendly restaurant that I haven’t eaten at yet. My grandpa suggested Bonefish Grill. Apparently him and his girlfriend eat there once or twice a week, so I was excited to give it a try.
When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease, one of the hardest things I had to deal with was figuring out what I could eat on-the-run, when traveling or when I was feeling lazy.
We just got back from our annual family vacation in northern Michigan, and I am feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and bronzed. We spent time on the beach, shopping and doing tastings at local wineries. Michigan is truly my home away from home.
