Vegas Vegfest and nephew's 21st birthday

Earlier this month, I attended my first Vegas Vegfest as well as celebrated Den's nephew's 21st birthday by taking a ride on the Vegas strip in a limo. I was able to enjoy a fun day of vegan food, saw some old vegan friends and made some new vegan friends. We had a good time although it was darkened by the face that the day after we left Vegas, the a mass shooting occurred which took the lives of 58 people. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by this dark day in American history.

I've decided to start back to blogging again and plan to more consistent posting at least once a month. My post today is about a professional development event I recently took part of in Yosemite which involved teaching storytelling and advocacy skills those working at small and rural libraries. It was a very informative 2 days in a beautiful setting.
