Happy New Year with Our Hen House!!!

New Year's morning--started with a yoga class at One Center Yoga--my favorite yoga studio in Asheville with my dear friend and teacher, Cindy Dollar.  It was a great class--the studio was packed--more students than I had ever seen there!
I was very excited because after class, I headed to meet Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan of Our Hen House for lunch at Rosetta's! They were passing through Asheville on their journey back to New York, and after emailing back and forth, we planned to meet for lunch. This was such a treat for me--I admire these women and their work to help animals, and I really enjoy their podcast and website. They brought some friends who live in Asheville and who have been animal activists for 30 years. It was really fun to connect with Stewart and Terri as well. We had a great time at lunch talking about our experiences of becoming and remaining vegan, as well all the obstacles along the way of living a vegan lifestyle. We laughed together at some of the things people say and do when finding out we're vegan. It was just really nice to commune and share a meal with four people that inspire me so much.  This was a really special treat, and our time together will stay with me for a long time.
