Gluten-Free Friends and Celebrities in Texas
Two weeks ago, I went to Texas for the very first time. I had a great time enjoying the weather and the sites of San Antonio before heading to the GFFAFest in Austin. My favorite part about this event was all of the smiling, gluten-free faces. I saw old friends and met new ones. I connected with longtime readers and Facebook friends that I only ever "met" online. I learned about new products and new blogs that I never heard about before. Meeting people is always my favorite part of writing this blog and attending events. You already know that I think these are the real gluten-free celebrities in our community. They aren't on TV (well, some are!) and they aren't in movies but they are the people that day in and day out advocate for our celiac and gluten-free community. This isn't everyone I met during my few days in Texas, these are the only people pictures I have.
