Love, love, love...

So, it's official. I'm a married woman. :) 

Marrying Steve was the single happiest experience of my life. The entire weekend was filled with the best kind of love, family, food, and celebration a girl could ask for. I got to spend time with two of my closest friends (who flew in from Atlanta and San Francisco), laugh like crazy with my sister, brother, mom, and dad, and dance my butt off. And marry my best friend, of course. All in all, it was a magical couple of days that I will never forget. 

I've been busier than I could ever imagine these past two weeks with wedding planning, celebrating, and mini-mooning, but all the while desperately wanting to find something to quickly post about on here. October's challenge of Vegan Mofo kept me on my toes as I tried so hard to blog every day about vegan food and living. With the wedding, however, I've had a million little (and big) reasons to be distracted.

So, until I am fully back in business, I leave you with a few beautiful pictures from the wedding, along with a few quotes about my most favorite thing in the world (next to animals, of course) - love. Love is my absolute favorite thing to do  - if I could somehow make a living out of it, it would definitely be my job! And as the saying goes, with love, all things are possible. So, enjoy, and I encourage you to take some time out this weekend to tell the people and animals in your life that you love them. I will be back very soon with a fun post about my next big project - Steve and my first married - and vegan - Thanksgiving!

In this life we cannot do great things. 
We can only do small things with great love.

Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, 
there can be no more hurt, only more love. 

Spread love everywhere you go. 
Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.

All quotes are by Mother Teresa (my favorite example of love).

So glad to see you back...and, with such a beautiful entry!!

I've been experimenting with several of my recipes and have perfected my vegan bean stew. Last night, we had friends over for dinner, and they had two heapings each! I also tried making a mini vegan sweet potato casserole with Earth Balance, Almond Breeze, Dandies vegan marshmallows, and cinnamon in preparation for Thanksgiving.

You looked gorgeous! What a wonderful dress: the day must have meant even more, knowing that it was a completely animal-cruelty-free day!

Congrats, darlin'!

In preparation for my vegan Thanksgiving at your and Steve's home, I am prefecting trying to sit back and and take in every moment all the love you will be giving.
For the first time I will be with a married daughter very much in love, and sharing that will us. I will experience her giving love to all of her guests with each bite of a beautifully prepared vegan meal. Each bite I take will not only hit my tummy, but it will hit my heart even more.

I'll love you forever. I'll like you for always. As long as I'm living my baby you'll be.
