Hi everyone! I haven’t written a personal post on here in a while, so since summer is coming to an end, I thought I’d give it a go.
This summer has been amazing for meeting so many vegan friends! In Australia I met SO many amazing, like-minded people, and just got to spend good quality time with them and make long lasting friendships. I even got to make friends in my area (Toronto, Canada) through Instagram! I will be honest; there are some days that I dislike social media and the idea that everybody is constantly online and always connected. But then there’s times when I’m hanging out with the amazing friends I have made through Instagram, that I remember this is why I do what I do; and I wouldn’t change a thing.
Okay, so basically, in the past week I went to the One Direction concert, hosted the final summer fruitluck in Toronto, went out for dinner with the girls, and then went to a Yoga event for Toronto Bloggers. So I will briefly touch on a few of those things below.
So on August 22nd, I hosted the vegan fruitluck at the Toronto Harbour Front. It was the last one for the summer, and we had such a great turn out. So many amazing people came out, some who I had met before at the other fruitlucks, and of course some new faces as well. It’s such an awesome feeling being around people who completely understand everything you believe in and stand for. People who don’t ask you where you get your protein, and people who don’t mind if you take a billion photos of your food; cause they’re doing it too.
After the fruitluck, a bunch of us went to a park in Kensington to hangout. We found an awesome vegan bakery called Cosmic Treats, then we all sat in a circle at the park, and went around to say our names, where we are from, and what made us go vegan. It was great to see such a variety of people, all different genders, races, ages, etc; all coming together for one common purpose.
After that, a few of us went to King’s Cafe for dinner and of course, took a ton of photos like crazy vegan bloggers hahaha.
Then last night, August 26th, about 11 of us met up at Urban Herbivore (UrbHerb) in Kensington for dinner. It was great to see everyone again and just chat about classic vegan things and share our opinions of different topics. It was also quite comical watching 10 girls crowding around the table all snapping photos of the food.
After dinner, we walked over to Cosmic Treats and we all got vegan cashew based ice-cream, and some of us got cookies and other treats. A few people also got Vegan Cinnamon Buns from BUNNERS!!
It’s so great to get together with fellow like-minded vegans. It’s such a shame that everyone is going their separate now that school is beginning again, but I know we will all keep in touch and see each other again soon.
Lots of love,
