Cruelty-free emu feather earrings, vegan eats and sweets, sustainable beer, found feathers in bouquets… our wedding was pretty rad, guys.
Friends and family have been begging me (for what feels like forever) to start a blog. My response? But I already have Instagram! And Facebook! And Twitter! WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM ME?! Apparently, micro-blogging recipes and other nonsense was not enough. And thus, it is finally official: The Lady Applesauce is alive and well. You’re welcome, interwebz.
Not much fluff here in my first post, because I’m already struggling to wrap my brain around this thing. So you’ve got a photo up there — that’s me. I just married my favorite human. He rules. I’m vegan (he’s not). Our wedding was totally vegan (because he loves me). That ruled, too.
I’m turning 31 years old this upcoming Monday. Pretty stoked to have been around this long. We live in the ‘burbs of Southern California (and we also love the film The ‘Burbs starring Tom Hanks… if you dig that, we’ll get along just fine).
We’ve got three cats and they are all girls (I’ll probably post about them a lot). Iggy (12) is an American bobtail; Bijou (8) is a Burmese; and Eleanor “Ellie Bellie Radar Trash Bao Rels Sausage Fatty McFat Fat HoboCat” (2) is your typical stripe-y alley cat who refuses to ever shut up. All are rescues. And they are, clearly, the lights of our lives.
That’s Ellie. She’s ridiculous. Most of the time she’s farting and talking up a storm. Sometimes her tongue hangs out. She always smells like fish (however, we do not feed her fish).
My family is the most important thing to me on this planet (besides the planet itself, which is equally important). I’m psychotically health conscious, I work out like a fiend, I try to be incredibly ecologically aware, I write and edit for a living, and I cook for my soul. I’ve been vegetarian for 18 years and vegan on-and-off for eight (and yes, in the midst of all of that, there have been times when I’ve called myself pescetarian; and even when I ate fish, it was hard, because I care a lot about them… but that’s another post altogether).
Oh, and I talk A LOT. Non-stop chatty. Words, words, words. With that being said, I’ll probably cut this off now before I bore you before I even begin.
IN SHORT: I’m going to to use this blog to post vegan recipes, photos of food I’ve made, healthy tips I’m learning about at the mo, and there will probably be plenty of other life stuff thrown into the mix.
