Did you know that Valentine’s Day has its roots in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia? Valentine’s Day started as a pagan festival, then a feast day commemorating St. Valentine, and has since then grown into a global celebration of love.
However, sometimes we get wrapped up in the expectations and pressures of the holiday, and it becomes easy to lose sight of what truly matters. Picking out the right card, gift, and making dinner reservations can be awfully taxing. It is important to remember that true love isn’t about flowers, chocolates, or candle lit dinners. Of course you want it to be special, but make sure your Valentine’s Day plans revolve around you and your loved one, and what makes the two of you happy.
When cold weather sets in, it may feel like it is impossible to get warm. You crank up the heat, dress in layers, but still warmth eludes you. Sometimes the best way to warm up is cooking up a hot comfort meal. Food nourishes the body and comforts the soul, so try these cold weather recipes and soak up the warmth!
