Updates: Where Have I Been?

I’ve been absent for a while, so I wanted to take some time to update everyone on life in the Food Allergy Dad house.

One Year

Two days ago marked one year since my first blog post. It’s hard to believe it has been one whole year. To be honest, I didn’t think I would make it this far.
