Each morning when I look out our office window, I see a breathtaking tree decorated with white blossoms, towering with a quiet persistence next to the courthouse. No one seems to know what type of tree this is; what we do know is that when we need it most, when the chaos of daily life comes close to blocking our view, it is a reminder to take a step back and care for our health and our Earth. In honor of April 22, Earth Day, find your own reminder, and try out some of Delicious Living's top ways to celebrate Mother Nature, from vegan recipes to green living tips.
