An Evening With Stockholm’s Vegan Moms: Warming Up Over A Cup of Coffee

One snowy morning I set off from my home in central Sweden with my daughter to take the train to Stockholm, the nation’s capital, and meet up with eight mothers who I had been communicating with for several weeks now. Our meet up point was Nina Färdig’s fabulous vegan shoe and fashion shop Green Laces in Södermalm, the southern part of central Stockholm.

As all the mothers arrived – some with their babies – we settled in for delicious, strong hot coffee, vegan cream wafers to nibble on, and lots of dialogue on solidarity, our children, work, health, stories from our homes, our lives and more.

It was truly an honor and so much fun to organize this invigorating photoshoot with so many dynamic women. After the photo shoot, as we said our goodbyes, it felt as if hearts were full and minds alight with the companionship made on the day.

Already on my train ride home I was posting phone photos from the day on my various social media channels and seeing the enthusiastic, happy posts of the other mothers as well. We had all gone home from the coffee circle and photoshoot feeling more empowered with the knowledge of fellow passionate and mindful vegan moms out there. 

Thank you to all the mothers for your presence on this day and with love to all of you readers! Please enjoy the various interviews with these wonderful women and stay tuned for more.
