It was my 22nd birthday today! I can’t believe I turned 22, when I seriously feel like I just turned 21. Time flies by so fast and I feel like it’s only going to go by faster and faster. This time last year, I had just moved back to Los Angeles from Hong Kong and was staying at a hotel with my parents while I searched for apartments. Now, it’s one year later and I’ve just moved back to Hong Kong and back in with my boyfriend. It’s crazy what all can happen in one year!
Since it’s my birthday, of course I’ve been enjoying myself all weekend long and explained the other day what all we did to celebrate. Basically it involved a pop-up raw vegan brunch, a rooftop dinner, a couple of glasses of wine, and a trip to Disneyland. But I’ve also been thinking a lot about the past year and how much I’ve grown and evolved as a person. A year ago, I had just made the decision to be completely vegan which helped me realize my biggest and most heartfelt passion. I started this blog hoping to share my newfound love for living a vibrant and healthy vegan lifestyle with you all.
Ever since then, I’ve been on a mission to create my own vegan community and surround myself with positive, like-minded people who care about the environment, animals, and what all goes into the food we eat, where it comes from, and how it affects our health. I’ve found such happiness and inner peace through all the people I’ve met, by teaching myself all about what it really means to be vegan, and by finally accepting myself for who I am. I’m at such a good place in my life right now and have the feeling that 22 is going to be a really good year!
