Posted in Family Traditions, Home {Our Nest}, Motherhood
on October 29, 2017

The Teal Pumpkin Project, started by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), encourages families to offer non-candy options for trick ‘r treaters on Halloween.  This allows kids with food allergies or other sensitivities to participate.
