Re: June – International Picnic Day

A raw vegan picnic is fairly simple. We eat a lot of fruit. This can be anywhere from different kinds of berries like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and cherries to watermelon, bananas, mangoes, and pineapple! Let's also not forget peaches. I love peaches! So it's really just ...

Re: June Wordcrawl: Quidditch World Cup

My hand was grabbed and we were racing through the crowd. I held on for dear life as my feet tried to drag behind me but were forced to continuously move forward.
