Something is missing.

Besides me of course. Really I am so sorry for not posting lately. We have been very busy and I tend to post more often on our family blog. If you would like, you can check it out here. I probably should just combine the two blogs, until then, you can find us in both places.

Having an allergy child changes everything. You know what I mean, if you live with a child, with allergies of any kind.

Before our little man was diagnosed with peanut, tree nut, and egg allergies, our life looked very different. You could almost always find a bowl of candy, sitting somewhere around the house. Every holiday, you would find a bowl full of foiled covered peanut butter cups, for that was Daddy's favorite.

For the safety of my two year old, we do not keep anything with peanuts or tree nuts in the house. Not even a secret stash for me to enjoy. There is not one thing in my house that my little guy can not eat. Not that I wouldn't love a secret stash for me, because certainly there are times I would love to lock myself in the closet, and enjoy a treat. My little guy can get into almost everything. The safety locks are a joke to him, and his latest trick is climbing in the refrigerator. He likes to use the crisper as a step stool and get what he wants. Man, if anyone had warned me about boys, I might have had an only child. Let's just say, I am one busy mamma keeping this guy out of trouble.

Regardless of all of that, I was very excited to find something VERY yummy lately. It is a 90% Cacao Bar with Goji berries. We do not have soy or dairy allergies, I know some of you do so I thought I would let you know the label says Soy and dairy free. The best part for us, is it is made in a nut, wheat and gluten free facility. It is an organic raw chocolate, made by Earth Source Organics, called Righteously Raw. You can check out their product page here.

I would love to know if any of you have tried these yet, or if you do, please let me know what you think.

We just got back from a little trip, and I have lots to do. Will be posting lots of pictures over here very soon. Plus, you can check out all my other recent photo happening while you are there.

Have a great day.


  1. We are dairy free, I have not sean these yet!

  2. I agree- having a child with a food allergy does change everything. About a year ago I discovered my oldest son, then 5, has a gluten allergy. Since then I've realized that it's hereditary and I, and possibly our other 2 kids have an allergy too. It's been an uphill battle but things are getting easier.

    Thanks for sharing your story. It's nice to know there are moms out there dealing with similar issues.
