What To Do For My gluten-free Anniversary?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I cannot believe it has almost been 1 year that I have been gluten-free! In some ways it seems like years, in other ways it seems like yesterday.

I remember coming here constantly when I was first diagnosed and how wonderful everyone has been and continue to be on my journey. I remember reading other people who passed this milestone and never thought I would make it.

It has been an interesting and good year, and I could never have done it without everyone's help and advice.

So, now..what do I do to celebrate? Make myself a big gluten-free cake? Go out for a good gluten-free meal? I definitely want to do something to celebrate this occasion.

Thanks!!

If it were me, I would celebrate by going out to sushi. But I'll take ANY excuse I can get to go out for sushi.

Other alternatives - find a gluten-free bakery (I know others here have posted about ones in Chicago) and buy yourself a gluten-free cake (no work involved!).

You are right, i shouldn't do any work, for once. I love Swirlz cupcakes here in Chicago. Their gluten-free cupcakes are so delicious!!! though sushi sounds like a great idea and there is a place I have been wanting to try. Thanks for the idea!!

Sometimes I have a gluten free dinner for friends on my anniversary. Sometimes I just make myself a gluten-free cake that I bring to work to share. Congrats on one year!

Chicago...go to DaLuciano's if you like Italian. There menu looks amazing! And with 4 Celiac kids in the family you have to think they "get" gluten free!

We made a huge fuss with the 1st anniversary. I decorated the house with balloons and had my son's tTg number plastered everywhere (he was down from 100 to 2.8). We had his grandparents over for dinner and cake. Heck yeah you celebrate! Having Celiac disease means a lot of sacrifice and hard work. Compare that to say a birthday - what did you have to do for that big honor? Nadda!

Anne, there are so many things to celebrate.

You know what was causing your problems, and are now in control of your life.

You have a loving family who must be happy to see you better.

With some work, you can live a normal life and not be sick all the time.

I don't know Chicago well, although I have deep roots there (my parents met as graduate students at UC and were married there in 1952). So, I can't suggest a place for dinner out, but find a place and celebrate with your family.

:)
