I’m 23! Birthday’s are fun because I get to eat a lot of vegan food and do something fun. Even though yesterday was my actual birthday I celebrated on Sunday instead and I figured I’d share my day with you all!
I went with my family and Darrin to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh to start the day. I’ve never been there before but it was so awesome! I want to go back again in a few months. Each room is so unique and full of amazing plants that I’ve never seen before.
There was a room full of fruit trees that had me so excited. Bananas, star fruit, oranges, pineapples, lemons, papaya, etc. I was in heaven in that room. It took everything I had to not pick a fresh banana off the tree!
I also forgot to take my camera with me but thankfully my phone quality is good enough to make due and take pictures like this. I loved this flower so much and I’m not even sure what it’s called (ahh) but I took so many pictures of them. Nature amazes me!
We went to Eden for brunch and I tried the mushroom butterbean burger for the first time. I got it with a side of veggie soup and a green smoothie. The burger was insane!! So good. I can’t believe I haven’t tried it before. I then proceeded to eat a quarter of my moms waffles too, whoops!
We stopped at Whole Foods, the animal shelter, and Gluuteny for some cupcakes before heading home. My mom made non vegan cupcakes for everyone else and I got a cappuccino and almond cupcake. Darrin and I cut them in half and split them. They were both so good, but I’m a huge fan of the cappuccino one! It was delicious!
My day was spent doing fun things with people that make me happy and I am very grateful for it all. I have learned to look at things that I have been given in my life and appreciate it all. Excited to see what this year will bring me and to look back on this day and remember how much there is to make me smile!
Thanks for reading!
