It’s here! It’s here! Oi my god, it’s finally time for Vida Vegan Con!!!
That’s right, the world’s first ever vegan bloggers conference is this weekend, right here in Portland Oregon, and it is going to be AMAZING! Already, 100s of bloggers have descended on the city. My Twitter feed is a fast and steady flow of excitement, chatter, camaraderie, Portland iconography, and of course, tons of food pics! It’s so fun to see all these enthusiastic folks storming the city, tweeting about all my favorite haunts and truly enjoying all that Portland has to offer. Makes me appreciate this place more, and mostly makes me SO HAPPY to be a part of such an awesome, energetic, and life-loving community. YAY VEGAN BLOGGERS!
I can’t wait to tell you all about the merriment, next week! In the mean time . . .
Le Love List
1. VIDA VEGAN CON! Obvi. See above. Also, because I am facing my biggest fear, and sitting on a panel and speaking in front of people, and that is a monumental step in the direction of seizing my life for my own. And I’m gonna kill it – whether I freeze up or whether I’m eloquence embodied – I’m gonna kill it because I’m gonna DO IT. And that’s going to be amazing.
2. The bonzai Book Club! Have you joined the discussion yet? What are you waiting for?! I’m having such a great time talking and thinking with all you incredible, intelligent folks. Love it. JOIN IN!
3. ^^ Those two. ^^ Need I say more? Don’t think so. Love those guys . . .
Also! Summer food, sunny nights, mini zinnias, my neighbor handing me enormous cucumbers over the fence, movies instead of working, peanut butter, almond butter, grunge fashion, girl’s night out, outdoor music, The Weepies, practicing for #2, beer in the bath, kicking coffee, did I mention peanut butter? I’ll stop now . . .
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – tell me what you’re loving this week!
