I returned home over a week ago, but it seems like a whirlwind. Like it was only a few days ago. I returned home from an epic journey that included bonding, eating a ton of amazing vegan food, the Texas Two-Step, eating a ton of amazing vegan food, learning, eating a ton of amazing vegan food, community, eating a ton of amazing vegan food, inspiration, and, did I mention, eating a ton of amazing vegan food?
I am talking, of course, about the phenomenon that is known as the Vida Vegan Con. Back in 2011 three amazing women (Jess, Michelle, and Janessa) created the first ever conference specifically for vegan bloggers. It was almost an experiment in social behavior. What would happen when we pull hundreds of vegan bloggers out from behind the safety of their monitors and put them in one place IN REAL LIFE? Magic. That's what happened. Classes, and workshops, community building and, of course, awesome vegan eats. Ask anyone that attended that first year. It was absolutely life changing!
