World Vegan . World Peace: A Conscious Choice

A couple of weeks ago, I co-hosted an event called World Vegan . World Peace: A Conscious Choice. It was a conference all about veganism. I thought I'd share some of the pictures.


Just Before:


One of the highlights of the evening was listening to Dick Gregory, a vegan comedian.


Standing next to me here is Yvonne Smith, The Traveling Vegetarian.

My good friend Gil.

My mom and my youngest nephew, Isaac.

Notice how Isaac made it into all of the After Party photos :)

Frank Lloyd Wright Tour

We took the core tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Oak Park last weekend.

We came across this beautiful vibrant yellow caterpillar on the way.

Art Institute of Chicago

We also visited The Art Institute of Chicago last week and I was so surprised at how large it actually is. So many great pieces of art.

Bueller, Bueller...

And one of my favorites from their bookstore, My Milk Toof. In French, milk teeth are baby teeth. These baby teeth have all kinds of adventures in this book. It's almost too cute.

Some views around the city

Last week my cousin from France was visiting us and we played tour guide around Chicago...

A really sweet graphic in the West Loop

Luritz Gardens in Millennium Park

And my first Cubs game

They won! It was a great game that went into the 10th are the Cubs rushing out on the field after the win.

And the air show was this weekend, we could see some of the jets flying by from our balcony.

Chicago is so beautiful when the weather is nice...if only it were nice more often!
