New year’s resolutions usually center around self-improvement, not home-improvement. But the home is an important part of life – it’s where we spend most of our time and has an impact on our day-to-day health and happiness. So this year, let your home in on the new year’s resolution fun!
New Year’s Eve is often a holiday where families feel limited in their choices for celebration spots. Most venues cater to the adult crowds on this night, leaving families to celebrate at home. Thankfully, each year Atlanta is offering more and more ‘low-key’ events catered specifically to families. Here are my top 5 family New Year’s Eve celebrations taking place throughout the city!

Holiday mornings are a time to be spent making memories with your family – not in the kitchen laboring over a breakfast meal. Make the most of your Christmas morning by planning a simple, yet delicious holiday menu.
For a hot and and filling main course, this Christmas Casserole is a must! And these Mini Cinnamon Crescents are a great treat for added flavor and warmth. Serve with fruit, yogurt, granola – and of course plenty of coffee – and you and your family will have a relaxing and delicious Christmas morning.

It’s almost time! Clocks officially turn back 1 hour on Sunday, November 4th at 2 a.m. Following the hustle and bustle of Halloween, it’s an event that is easily overlooked – so mark your calendars now and get ready for the end of Daylight Saving Time.
Though the fall time change is usually favored (who doesn’t want an extra hour of sleep?!), the twice-a-year event of changing our clocks often feels like an outdated concept.

National Geographic recently published an article covering the topic, and it’s worth a read if you want to learn more about the mindset behind the almost 100 year practice.
Whether you’re looking forward to gaining an hour, or dreading having to adjust your body to a new routine, I hope you make the most of the extra weekend hour!
