The good, the bad, and the wonderful

While sipping my organic vodka and lemonade cocktail, and snacking on some ridiculously too good too be true scrumptious plump dates with almond butter, I find it a good time to break this news. 

The Good: I am opening MY OWN high-end women's accessories boutique in Northampton, MA. It is a very very very exciting, overwhelming, fun, and crazy time right now for me. At the age of 24 I never thought I could accomplish this type of thing so soon after college. I have worked very hard in this type of field throughout school and in the last couple of years, the opportunity seems to have fallen into my lap. It is amazing for me and I will be sure to keep you guys informed as much as I can on the name, when I open, my merchandise etc. If any of you live in the Western MA valley, you MUST come find me :)

The Bad: The informing you as much as I can part will unfortunately not be that often. My hours and days and weeks blend together, and I don't even open till August! If you think my blogging has been slacking lately, just wait come then....literally ;) Don't get me wrong, there are so many things daily food wise I want to share with you fabulous vegans, such as today, I had vegan salami for the first time and loved it totally, anyone else?? But I just might not have the time to blog as much as I normally would love to, as I did last summer and up until the last couple of months. 

The Wonderful: I will still be checking your blogs and commenting as often as I can. It is much more soothing to see all yours for a few minutes then to write a post after an exhausting day for me, let alone take the food porn. Oh, the food porn....But I love love love reading your blogs, and seeing your posts daily. I will not be stopping that quick check every day, few times a day ;)
And, I hope you will keep checking in on me when I do post. Your comments and thoughts are always really great to read.

PS. I checked and knew it was coming, yes my vegan blog 1 year anniversary is July 8! My goal is to post before and on that! 

Happy Weekend!
