Thank You

Posted on Updated on

Hi guys!

Bear with us, as we’re still digesting the grand weekend—and year and half of planning—that was Vida Vegan Con. All three organizers have now begun reflecting on our own blogs (shocker), which you can read here and here and here, we’ve started thanking everyone involved (Thank You!), and writing a few drafts of our equally grand review of the event that just flew by, and odds are we’ll never stop reflecting and reviewing.

We’ve collected your comment cards, read your emails, and spoken at length with speakers, attendees, sponsors, and friends alike, in addition to our own personal wishlists—we’re gearing up for Spring 2013 and some surprises in the meantime, one of which is our dedication to VeganMoFo in October right here on this blog.

Starting October 1, Janessa, Jess & Michele (who will also fly high with daily updates on her own site) will start updating daily on everything from food cart lunches to impromptu salad dressing concoctions to what’s holding their morning smoothie or coffee.

So, until we wrap it up some more—and who wants to do that?—read these updates to get all misty-eyed, or see what you missed, and what’s in store:

Want us to add yours? Just leave a comment.
Now, even when you’re organizing a conference, as a blogger, you always make time for a few photos:

Now go off and blog, and one more thank you to everyone who was a part of this adventure!
