Gosh, a week without a post and I’ve missed you all! This week has been really great. I didn’t share any New Year’s resolutions or goals on this blog, mostly because I don’t really believe in them for myself, but something I want to work on is saying “yes”. I’m such a homebody that sometimes going out seems too difficult or stressful, even though in the end, when I do say yes, I have such a great time! So this week I said “yes” more and it’s been such a positive thing. It’s amazing what you open yourself up to when you decide to be happy receiving!
In other blog news, thank you for those of you who completed the survey for the third Healthy Vegan Friday host! We’ve had some really awesome applicants and are currently reviewing them. So stay tuned!
For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself and Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan. it is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!
