Memories…

Whew, your friendly conference organizers are back from Austin, TX and diving right back into conference-planning hyperdrive! It’s not as if we stopped in Texas, of course, but we were there to research a new Vida Vegan possibility, see some friends, and eat a taco or two, or ten. And all the chips & salsa we could get our greedy hands on. Contemplating Vida Vegan Con II naturally has us reminiscing (and reflecting, analyzing, and so proud of) the very first Vida Vegan Con in 2011. It’s hard to believe it was over a year ago!

Here are some of our photo memories, shockingly somehow taken when the organizers took a moment to breathe or inhale more coffee and coconut creamer.

It totally speaks for itself.
