Past, Future, and PRESENTS!

Yes, the most important aspects of Christmas are God and being with family. But I’d be lying through my chocolate-covered teeth if I told you I didn’t get excited about presents!

I loved every single one of my presents this year, but on the blog I’ll highlight some that are related to veganism: The first present was definitely one of my favorites, due to the thought behind it. It came from my very dear friend, Evey, and it was the first present I’ve ever received from a blogger friend!

A few weeks ago, I didn’t think it was possible for Evey to get any sweeter. But after receiving the above package from her, I stand corrected; Evey’s even MORE caring that I’d originally thought! Thank you so much, Evey, for brightening my Christmas with vegan chocolates, and, even more importantly, with your kindness and friendship!

And then a gift from me, to my wonderful mom who has a santa collection. It’s Mr. Potato Head Santa! Mr. Potato said that I could feature him in this post because he IS a vegetable, after all!

    Oh and you should definitelu pull an all nighter sometime, they are so much fun. Just the thought that you actually did it is awesome, haha

    Fabulous presents! That chocolate looks heavenly. And I’m sure Henry will acquire his own line of merchandise soon enough–after all, he’s become famous on your blog!

  7. Leading Lady Lis says

    oh my goodness, Henry is just TOO adorable- those facial expressions! I swear dogs have just as much personality as humans.

    I just did a post about green smoothies that reminded me about your spinach smoothie you made a while ago. Check it out!

    Love Always,
    Leading Lady Lis

  10. River says

    Aww, Henry! I have a belly rub with his name written all over it!

    Mr. Potato Head Santa! I love it, and all your presents!

    By the way, you are the only person I know that can have such a beautiful smile with chocolate-covered teeth! 🙂

  11. Jen aka Jewbacca says

    yay for vegan chocolate and sharing the holidays with loved ones. and even awesomer-(is that a word?) is your holistic veganness. to me being vegan goes way beyond what i’m eating these days, it’s about tikkun olam-(hebrew commandment to heal the world).

  12. Joanna says

    you can never have enough aprons!!! i collect them, but usually end up cooking in my bathrobe haha which of course, i have an abundance of those too

  13. vegannurse says

    Wow, those chocolates do look good, haha.. and I’m so glad you liked them! 🙂

    You totally deserved them for being such a dear friend of mine!

    That apron is so cute! Love it! As well as that cute potato head!

  14. ChocolateCoveredVegan says

    Andrea– Yup, Henry definitely has his own stocking too. He and Molly each received a bone that is bigger than their own heads. And the other day, I walked in the room to find Henry with BOTh bones!

    Laci– Thanks for the Christmas wishes! And Happy Belated Christmas to you as well :o)
