With the busy, always-on-the-go, lifestyle so many of us have become accustomed to, it’s no wonder many turn to practices such as meditation, yoga, and even art as a form of grounding or recalibration.

Valentine’s Day Vegan Lasagna

My husband and I always opt for a cozy dinner at home to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We both really enjoy this holiday, but also strive to take time every day to celebrate love of all kinds. We plan our menu weeks in advance, find a few decorations, and look forward to sharing in this special dinner in our own home. This year, we will be having vegan and gluten-free lasagna. I am already looking forward to it!
