vegan pregnancy: 34 weeks & a weekend away

today was a busy day of playing catch up after spending a really amazing {and exhausting} weekend away, my last trip down south before our vegan bean arrives!  it was so full of friends and family and love and late nights that my heart is still running over and my head can't wait to hit the pillow again tonight.

my weekend was spent in toronto, followed by burlington, on to guelph and back to toronto.  lots of driving and saw this pregnant gal up for 2 late nights in bars for m's last 2 gigs of his mini tour with ox, including one at the bar in guelph where we first met almost 8 years ago.  {yes, it's true, we met in a bar - i was the bartender, he was the cute touring musician with crazy blue eyes...}

there were lots of visits, drinks shared and delicious meals along the way {here and here and a homecooked one too}, as well as a really yummy raw lunch at the naked sprout with my sweet friend sarah.  we had a great catch up and both stuffed ourselves with the raw tacos {so good!}.



i was also showered with love and laughter {and some of the cutest little gifts i've ever seen!} with my best girls during the most wonderful sunday afternoon.  they put together a mouthwatering spread of vegan-friendly eats and my girl susie hosted us in her gorgeous new home.  these dear friends i've known for years, some since summer camp, others since high school, university & even beyond, but they all share one thing and that's one of those amazing bonds where you can pick up right where you left off, no matter how long it's been.

lucky for me i've been spoiled and have had plenty of visits with them lately.   before saying our goodbyes we decided to take a group picture m caught us candidly as we tried to organize ourselves....




i love these beauties.  34 weeks pregnant sure was a happy one.
