My Coming Out Party, well, kinda

Headed to Panama City Beach for the fourth. I'm meeting my wife and kids, who've been there for a few days already. I've been sitting the dog and unable to leave too early since I have only limited vacation hours.  This is my coming out party in some ways. I'll be around 14 other people in my wife's side of the family all of whom are omnivores.  I'll be the "Vegan in the room." I'm excited.  I'm proud of not only what Veganism has done for me and to me, but what I stand for now.  So, as a rookie Vegan, I've studied my info a bit.  You know, the commonly asked questions: "Where do you get your protein?"  "What about calcium?"  "Is b-12 a problem?"

I've been really pleased with the resources at "Vegan Coach" and of course have relied heavily on my dear friend Megan.  I'm ready. I got my "Joyful Vegan" t-shirt, and I'm bringing my food with me.  I'll let ya know how it goes!
