|Yummy Vegan chocolate cake that my friend Kass made for me. :)|
Today marks 27 years of my existence. For some reason I'm not as depressed about being 27 as I was about being 26. I guess I have changed a lot in the last 12 months. More on this in a few days though.
To celebrate my birthday I spent the day baking and deep cleaning the house in preparation for having friends over for a Vegan birthday potluck dinner. B was super helpful with mowing the lawn and cleaning the patio for me, which I am super thankful for. Despite saying I really didn't want any birthday presents this year, he still gave me a new Vegan cookbook as a gift which I am really excited to get into.
I ended up baking some choc chip cookies (vegan of course) and my famous cous cous salad which were both a huge hit. I actually didn't get around to taking photos of any of the food except for my gorgeous birthday cake featured at the top of this blog post. It was pretty safe to say that by the time all the food was unveiled nobody was willing to wait around for me to take photographs, haha!
As you can see from the photos above, a bunch of my friends from the Townsville Vegans group came along to celebrate with me, as well as a few of the girls that I work with. The girls that I work with aren't actually vegan (yet!) but damn do they know how to cook yummy vegan food! All of the food was beyond tasty actually. I really wish I had taken photos! From memory we had a variety of pizzas, potato bake, dumplings, fruit salad, cupcakes, rice paper rolls, shepherds pie, berry crumble, etc. I've probably forgotten something to be honest because I'd had a few glasses of wine by this point and as I don't drink often it went straight to my head! I do remember that everything was delicious though. :)
Anyway, I'm off to bed now, but I will write another post in the next few days about my thoughts on turning 27, goals I achieved whilst 26, and what I hope to achieve over the next 12 months. Stay tuned! x
