hello blog! it’s been a long time!
i’m dusting off the ol’ wordpress in honor of vida vegan con, which kicks off in austin tonight with an unofficial (totally official) meet & greet. as soon as i learned that VVC was going to be in austin, i started hatching plans to attend. as you may already well know, austin is my second/adopted hometown (i did my phd at the university of texas, as did my husband, and he lived there an extra three years before i arrived), and i jump at the chance to go back whenever possible. so, i’m typing this from the airplane, high above texas or somewhere, getting ready to indulge in a weekend of food, friends, and fun. yippee!
my flight was slightly delayed (twice) in my connecting city, so i might be cutting it close on getting to the meet & greet, but regardless i’m so excited to get things going. i’m trying to plan out all of my favorite eating spots so nothing gets overlooked in the hectic long weekend to follow. wish me luck! i’ll be checking in throughout the weekend, so get ready to see vegan chai in your blog reader all of a sudden after a long absence. i missed you!
