At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Recent Reflections - July 2020: Happy Birthday, Hubby!

This is the seventh Recent Reflections post of 2020.  Recent Reflections goes live the third Friday or Saturday of each month.  {Sorry it is a day late - time got away from me again!}  Each Recent Reflections post covers something that I'm reflecting on.  If you'd like to share a post with a similar theme, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your post, and I'll hop on over and leave a comment (and maybe some other readers will, too).

This month, I will be reflecting on my husband's birthday.

Yesterday was my husband's birthday.  Normally, we would have gone out to dinner and do ne something fun as a family, but things are by no means normal this year.  We did enjoy his day, but not in a normal fashion, opting to make homemade milkshakes and spend a quiet evening at home vs. going out on the town, as it were.


Happy Birthday {weekend}!

I know we didn't celebrate like we normally would, but I want you to know we love you and I hope you felt celebrated, even if it wasn't in the normal way.  May the Lord give us many more years together, and hopefully next year we can celebrate in a more traditional way.

All my love,

If you are getting ready to celebrate your birthday or the birthday of a loved one during this pandemic, do what you can to make it special in its own way, even if you don't do a traditional celebration.  Try to Facetime with family and friends who can't be there or give them a call.  Send cards or gifts.  Make a new "COVID-friendly" tradition or two.  Either way, enjoy the day in the best ways you know how, and remember that traditions don't matter more than the person, so focus on letting that person know you care vs. what you can or cannot do.

I truly hope this post has been a help to you, or at the least made you stop and think a little.

Maybe you want to share something in comments that God has done in your life recently to bless you as a means to be an encouragement to others during these trying and difficult times?  Feel free to do so.  Positivity and blessings are always welcome!  

What are you reflecting on?

Have a wonderful weekend!
