Yesterday, my awesome, loving boyfriend and I celebrated our 2-year anniversary. Whoo-hoo! It’s been the best two years of my life; we have so much fun together! I couldn’t have asked for a better boyfriend. I absolutely adore him. This is a picture from yesterday with the gorgeous bouquet of flowers he bought me.
I’m often asked about the kinds of things we do, the places we go, restaurants we frequent, etc. We’re High-Raw Vegans, which means that we eat 100% vegan and it’s Raw most of the time (with many periods when we’re 100% Raw). Since we don’t have totally Raw restaurants in our area, we eat a lot at home (and why not, since I love to prepare food). We enjoy physical fitness activities together: going to the gym, hiking, bowling, bike riding, epic walks in the middle of the night under the stars, and of course this. We’re also huge fans of going to the movies. When we do this, I can be counted on to smuggle in our green smoothies and Raw treats in my big purse.
One of our favorite things to do is spending part of the day at one of the many big, beautiful hotel resorts here in Arizona. I pack up a little bag of organic Raw snacks and we sip herbal tea or wine, while enjoying our books or working on our laptops. The hotels have fantastic lobbies, bars and patio areas that are furnished with big, comfy couches and it doesn’t cost hardly a thing (just whatever we order to eat or drink).
None of our friends are Raw (not yet at least – ha!) but a few are transitioning to a vegan diet (YAY!). Just because our friends don’t completely share our lifestyle doesn’t stop us from socializing with them though. They know we value our health and that we feel great with our lifestyle, so they support us. We bring our own food to gatherings, unless it’s at a restaurant. If that’s the case, our friends are more than happy to meet us at restaurants that offer some Raw vegan friendly items (delicious salads, etc).
We’re very excited about the holidays. I’ll prepare a number of Raw dishes to bring to our family gatherings as we visit each side of the family. Scrumptious fun!
Being in love makes me feel powerful – it makes me feel as if all kinds of wild and wonderful things are possible.
