yeah, it's one of those threads again!

I've been vegan for a year now (well, it's the 22nd where I am, anyway). I realise I've still been on a veg*n journey throughout this year, even though I had been vegetarian a while before I went vegan. I am learning new things every day, and getting more comfortable with my veganism every day. It would sound stupid to omnis but I bet some of you get it ... I think going vegan has been one of the most important things in my (pretty short) life in discovering 'who I am'.



Party with me!





on a sidenote ... I need a vegan-versary present for myself now. I'm thinking of this t-shirt. Opinions?

I had my no-eggs-or-cheese-versary recently but I still eat a few things with egg and dairy in them, like crisps and cake.

Woot!



Be sure to have something "I can't believe this is vegan" yummy for dinner tonight!

Congrats, isowish!



I love the shirt, it's really cute. Perhaps indulging in a nice tub of vegan ice cream would be another great present?
