Family-Friendly Holiday Evening
I’m looking forward to taking my kiddos to Suwanee’s annual Holly Jolly Day. Town Center is the perfect backdrop for a festive holiday evening, and my kids will love the crafts, s’mores and the annual lighting of the tree, not to mention the opportunity to meet Santa himself (my daughter has been preparing her list for Santa for the last couple months!). With local shops lining the park, mom and dad can also squeeze in a little holiday shopping, too. Friday, December 6, 6:30- 9:30 p.m. For more info visit

Unexpected Jewelry Shop
C.C. Liquidations recently celebrated the opening of its new, larger storefront off of Satellite Boulevard in Suwanee. While the store is mostly known for its amazing selection of furniture and decor at exceptional prices, the diamond in the rough has to be the unexpected selection of jewelry for sale at the shop. Local jewelry designer Maricy Fernandes sells her custom pieces in-house alongside a selection of what owner Kim Douglass describes as “fun costume, boho-chic pieces.” Be sure to check out the eclectic earrings, bracelets and more next time you’re shopping for a sofa or area rug.

Amazing Mobile Detail Service
We recently had paint correction and ceramic coating applied to my husband’s SUV by Overalls Auto Detail in Alpharetta. The entire experience was amazing and has saved us from having to worry about waxing the car for at least three years. I could not believe the transformation his 13-year-old 4Runner went through — it looks brand-new! The owner, Vini, has a passion for providing amazing auto detailing services backed by his love of cars. His attention to detail and superior service means your car will look amazing and you will be in awe of what he can do. From full auto detailing and headlight restoration to monthly auto spa packages and coatings to make your car shine, Overalls Auto Detail is my new go-to mobile auto detailing service.

Chilling at Lake Lanier Islands
I took a trip to Margaritaville’s Chill Snow Island to take a ride down Parrot Mountain, a 575-foot-long, eight-story-tall snow tubing hill that is said to be the fastest in North America. Trust me, it lives up to the hype. After my brief adrenaline rush, I took a spin around the ice rink, had a mini-snowball fight with my younger siblings, and of course stopped by to grab a holiday- themed drink at LandShark Landing. Whether it is driving the seven miles through the Magical Nights of Lights or roasting marshmallows lakeside with a hot chocolate in hand, Margaritaville at Lanier Islands is the perfect place to ramp up the holiday spirit.
