Vegan restaurants in Portland OR

It’s been a while since our little family went out of town for a few days, let alone taken a full-length vacation. Before baby J joined us nine months ago, we used to go on little trips pretty often, but now that she’s with us, traveling with her can be a challenge. Recently we decided that we really needed a change of scenery, even if for a couple days, and … Read the rest of the post

Our Travel Adventures in Victoria, BC: Vegan Restaurants, Chocolate Treats, and Pickle Boat Rides

A few weekends ago, Rob and I spent a lovely weekend in Victoria, British Columbia. We don’t have an opportunity to take a longer vacation before our baby arrives in October, so going away to a new place for a weekend whenever we can has been a nice alternative. We haven’t been to Victoria yet since we moved to the Pacific Northwest three years ago, so this was a perfect … Read the rest of the post

Fremont Fair: Seattle’s Quirkiest Neighborhood Shows Us More Than We Asked For

Wow, this past weekend was definitely something to remember! On Saturday, Rob and I visited the Fremont Fair – a giant fun event celebrating the summer solstice that took place in Fremont, the quirkiest neighborhood of Seattle. This annual fair took place for the 43rd time, and while we only found out about it a few days ago, we were definitely glad that we did! Just how quirky is Fremont, you may ask? After living in the … Read the rest of the post

Seattle Vegan Restaurants Review: Plum Bistro, Wayward Vegan Cafe, Araya’s Place, Flying Apron Bakery

On our recent trip to Seattle, I was very glad to have an opportunity to eat at a number of all-vegan restaurants that are so numerous in Seattle area. This was a nice change from our current town in Southern Alabama where we don’t have any fully vegan eateries… I mean, we still manage, of course, but generally any eating out experiences are limited to choosing the only thing on the menu … Read the rest of the post
