I wasn’t going to participate in VeganMoFo this year, because I just don’t have a lot of time. I haven’t been able to really follow through in the last few years, and that makes me sad. I know that there are lots of bloggers out there who are doing an amazing job for VeganMoFo every year, and I just haven’t. I haven’t been a very consistent blogger here, though I have been regularly contributing to my column over at loud.com.
It looks like I didn’t quite get in on time to be officially included, but I’m here and ready to blog for VeganMoFo! I will be aiming for 20 posts.
So, recently, I have been working. A lot.
The plus side to all the working is that I am starting to have enough extra income that I can meet my goals and have some fun- part of which includes traveling!
I found out recently at my primary job that I have to start using up my vacation because of some policy changes. I also need more CEU/CME credits over the next year, so it works out to be doing what will hopefully be a lot of travel over the next year.
I have done some travel in the last year or two that I never even bothered to write up for the blog, and that’s just a shame! So for VeganMoFo this year, I will be sharing some of my past travels, recent travels, ongoing travels, travel inspired cooking and travel preparation tips… and I think I’ve got myself a theme for VeganMoFo this year!
That’s not to say that I might not break the theme at all to participate in any challenges that come up or other ways of being in the now, but I’m hoping to bring a little life back into this blog this VeganMoFo.
To kick things off, I just wanted to share something from my most recent travels- a trip to Cape Cod last week. I don’t often think of the Cape as travel, as it’s home for me- where I grew up and lived for the first 30 years of my life (less college), but since now when I go back I do it with NY plates on my car, travel it really is.
I left late in the evening for about a 1AM arrival at my mom’s house, meaning I got home long after everyone else was asleep. This was okay (but turned out not to be a great way to avoid traffic), made even better by the fact that I walked into the kitchen and there was a pan of brownies waiting for me!
Stay tuned over the next few days for some Cape Cod vegan highlights!
And of course, happy VeganMoFo 2014!
