Rather than ramble on about my disbelief of fast the year is passing by [again] I thought I’d take a moment to appreciate the wonderful day that November 1st is. World Vegan Day. All Saints’ Day. Birthday of Penn Badgley… woops, how did that one get in there ;)?
Does today have any special meaning for you? Birthday of loved ones or pets? Special anniversaries? I like the thought that every day – no matter how insignificant it might seem to us in that moment – is a special day for somebody somewhere. Okay, I know I might have already lost you here so I hope you’ll enjoy this week’s links and I’ll talk to you again soon!
Happy Sunday and: happy World Vegan Day!
