I am a believer in silver linings. Because if I didn’t, I’d be one miserable human.
The best silver lining I’ve ever found? It was these ladies.
If I had never been diagnosed with a gluten intolerance and later a full-blown wheat allergy, I never would have started writing FrannyCakes. And if I never started that blog, I would have never met some of the people that I consider to be dear friends. Our paths would have never crossed.
I never would have been saved from mis-labeled rolls at a conference if it weren’t for Erica. I never would have fulfilled my fantasy of wearing a crown if it weren’t for Brandy. (Also, I would not have laughed so hard at how ridiculous our lives are without her). And I most definitely wouldn’t have a cupcake wars champion on speed-text. (You know, so I can beg her to bring treats to whatever city we happen to be visiting next). These remarkable women are taking over the world. And the evil protein gluten brought us together.
