I have connected with a few people who comment on this blog, and it just feels so amazing, and to keep it really honest, really helped me keep my sanity when I felt so alone while living in Erie, PA. I had some really long conversations with one person, Almost a Vegan, and it really made me feel less lonely, and I always looked forward to the little google notification! I also connected with Vegan In The VI, formerly The Shenandoah Vegan. And all that time I was feeling so lonely in Pa, someone who's blog I was a fan of, Jennifer Bliss of My Blissful Journey lived under two hours away! Now, I feel like we're friends, and I live on the west coast. Like I said yesterday, Life! These connections have meant the world to me, and one of the best things to come out of my decision to start blogging! These connections have helped me to feel more confident as a person, and more confident as a vegan. Sometimes it's easy to start losing your voice when it seems no one is interested. We can't lose our voice, because there aren't enough of us, and the animals need us. So I am so grateful for my internet friends, I value them so much.
In other friend news, Dylan(not a vegan, but he loves vegan food!) has been doing a little better yesterday and so far today. His appetite is up a little, and he seems a little less confused. Anything I do know about friendship, I learned from him.
In food news, I needed comfort and am also on a shoestring budget, so I made my favorite smothered burritos.

I also picked this up as an impulse buy. I'm sure it's going to be a wonderful friend!
Vegan Mofo is just giving me all the warm and fuzzies this year, and I just love it, and really needed it!
