Let’s Go Vegan!

‎40 DAYS OF VEGAN (for LENT) I’m going for it. Who’s in? Joshua Paget hooked me up with Vegan books so I don’t get emaciated & pass out. Let’s do this… We can blog about the journey, support one another, meet up at vegan restaurants, & reflect on its effect upon our lives spiritually. Wait…Booze is vegan, right?

We are opening ourselves up to our communities and the communities around us.
