Beware the lack of food in this post! While there's a plethora of adorable animals ahead, there's no food, as we all know animals are not for eating. I hope you can overlook the lack of edibles in lieu of the cuteness that abounds.
I was lucky enough to have the chance to attend the annual Farm Sanctuary Hoe Down this year. It was an amazing day of speakers, food, fun & amazing animals! There's not much to say besides if you get a chance to check out the farm, DO IT! I'll let some the photos speak for themselves..

On Mother's Day, my family & I attended a wonderful mother's day brunch at Millennium! We never once told our party of 8 that the food was all vegan & everyone enjoyed their food immensely! How great is that?! Once we returned to my home, I was lucky enough to have my mother, a woman with a very green thumb, help me plant my first garden on my patio. My grandfather built a planter & gave it so me & I couldn't wait to fill it up! Tomatoes, Cilantro, Basil, Yellow Wax Beans, Haricot Verts, Walla Walla Onions, & Kale, all organic, of course, were planted & I'm looking forward to their yield! We had our 1st visitor right after we finished planting, a lovely lady bug!
Finally, I have a gorgeous new apron by the producers of the hottest aprons, Jessie Steele! My fairy apron-mother Leigh Poindexter sent me this loveliness with matching mitts, when she heard it was a favorite design of mine due my engagement in Paris. As you can see, I salute Jessie Steele's adorable aprons & Beamish cat has an appreciation for them as well!
Life has been insanely busy around here & right now I have two house guests, Jess from The Domestic Vegan & her boyfriend Nick. Next week I'm headed to Portland for the 1st time & will be a house guest of Jess from Get Sconed! I'm excited to explore the foods there, as I know there's many wonderful vegan options, especially desserts! Let's hope life will slow down a bit for me soon & I can get back to the FOOD!
