Yep, it's my birthday today! I'll be celebrating by getting a nice pedicure, having a yum lunch somewhere new, celebrating with 25 of my new (and old) friends at Spiral Diner, then sharing my most favorite documentary with them, Forks Over Knives. Eating cake will happen somewhere in there too.
Usually I'd be jumping for joy and screaming from the rooftops on my birthday, but I've realized that getting older is…well…getting older. Thankfully having lived a healthy lifestyle and adopted a plant-based diet over 8 years ago i have slowed the aging process considerably. But sometimes I just feel old LOL!!
Enough with the pity party haha. I've been so busy and I have so much great news to share. One thing I'm really excited about is I'm helping with the 2nd annual Texas State Veggie Fair. I'm helping the founder grow this years event to include speakers, sponsors, more vendors, more awesome things for kids, more delicious food, and other exciting things we haven't quite settled on, like free yoga! It's October 23rd, so mark your calendar!! If you know anyone who would like to speak, be a vendor, volunteer or attend the fair please spread the word and have them contact me.
Another awesome thing going on in my life is I'm dating someone that I'm just crazy about! More on that soon 🙂
Another cool event happening this weekend in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is that Will Tuttle is in town! If you've been reading this blog very long you know that he is one of my favorite people in the whole world and his book, The World Peace Diet, is one of the most important books of our time. Seriously if you haven't read it, grab a copy, and give to all your friends and family that are on the fence about the vegan diet. Visit his website to see if he's speaking near you and seize the opportunity to listen to his amazing concert and lectures!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
