Last Saturday I spent the day at the Raw Spirit festival in the Santa Barbara mountains. I was so fortunate to meet back up with Matt Monarch and Angela Stokes as well as meet for the first time the lovely Cathy Silvers, Vanessa (aka chocolategirl), and gorgeous Philip McCluskey! I saw David Wolfe, Juliano and Ariel, Solla, and Steve from Raw Vegan Radio. Met up again with Enrique from Henry's raw vegan ice cream (he's so sweet, ha) and met Courtney Pool, Chele Eades, Kevin and Annmarie Gianni from The Renegade Health Show and Revell from Rawkin Radio! I hope I'm not forgetting anyone!

Cathy Silvers hosted David Wolfe and Matt Monarch in a durian eating contest and below are my crazy pictures atop a folding chair! I'm just under five feet tall and this is the best I could get!

I would definitley attend Raw Spirit again with hopes that they make it closer in to a major city, no camping, and perhaps like Courtney from Radical Radiance suggested, they should put it on at a resort. It was very expensive to get in and I know the vendors had to pay a lot of money too. Wondering where the money went? Love the vibe, people watching and of course the food!!

Lastly, here's a birdie from Disneyland just for funsies:
