On Tuesday I was given the opportunity of a lifetime, and it came in an email. And I was honestly speechless.
This is what it said.....
"Congratulations! We're super excited to welcome you as a
member of our GFAF Expo Chicago Blogger Team on April 12th & 13th!"
In all honesty, I had submitted the online blogger application a while ago and totally forgot about it. And there I was, waiting in the office at my local university as they downloaded the video from my guest lecture about Celiac Disease, and this is what popped up as I checked my email. I think it literally took my breath away.
What an honor! Like, really the bloggers that I look up to go to expos like this. You know, like Keeley McGuire and Erica Dermer, and Chandice from Gluten Free Frenzy. Definitely not little people like me.
Really, I am SO honored.
So in two weeks, me and my husband get to go to Chicago DURING HIS SPRING BREAK!
And I get the opportunity to see one of my friends from high school who lives in Chicago too.
I don't know how I could be more blessed.
