From time to time over the years, I have seen gatherings of teen peers for the allergy community come up.  I have wondered if, when the time came, TealKid would want to participate.  He’s extremely social (not sure where he gets that from 😉 ) but would he want to partake with others who deal […] Read more...

A few weeks ago, we attended the Walk for Andrea to benefit Sick Kids Hospital Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Program in Toronto, Canada.  The Turn It Teal project has so much support from our friends up north that when we had the opportunity to meet some of them, and to help spread the word about […] Read more...



Yes.  We’re still here.  I know things have gone dark since this past food allergy awareness lighting season. It takes an enormous amount of time and energy to make it all happen, and then a while to recover.

My first FablogCon post was about the Expo and the general ins and outs of the conference.  The TealFamily and I are still making our way through samples and placing orders for new products that won us over! I think daily of things I wish I would have thought to say to people or questions […] Read more...



As I mentioned in my last post, I had the amazing opportunity to attend FABLOGCON, presented by Ms. Jenny Sprague.  I asked around in the community: if you could attend only one event all year, what would it be?  FABLOG was the answer several times.  I wasn’t sure how, but we figured out a way […] Read more...
