Veg Fest 2018!

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Today is VegFest.

When I first started volunteering and attending the Detroit-area VegFest, it took place in a school. There were maybe a few hundred people who showed up, and I remember speakers standing at podiums that were in front of children's toys.

Wow, times have changed. Now it's at a convention center, and it is HUGE!

Like last year, I volunteered with Attorneys for Animals.
Shout out to Meg and Krishna for taking this not-at-all-staged photo with me.
And like pretty much every year in the past, I had to get a picture with my carrot buddy Daniel.

The food was incredible. Despite trying to be a bit healthy. I totally splurged on vegan Ben and Jerry's, a coney dog from the Russell Street Deli, and macaroni and cheese from GreenSpace.

File these under "why I weigh more now than I did two months after giving birth":

It just feels so incredible to see people who are interested in plant-based living all coming together. I always get so inspired there! If you haven't been before, I highly recommend it!
