I can’t believe that 2018 is coming to a close and 2019 is in full effect. This year went by fast for me, and that’s putting it lightly. I fell into my full-time job, spending more time with that then I have been in the past. By the time I got home I was exhausted to even do anything. There were several events that we’ve attend for the past few years and didn’t this year because of that.
You know the saying, ‘Time flies when you’re having fun”? Lies. Time also flies when you’re not. 😉 One of my goals in 2019 is to get back out there and enjoy the different festivities and attractions that I have come to love here in Atlanta. The wonderful people over at World of Coca-Cola have comprised an amazing list of activities that are a sure hit with the whole family. Check them out now and let me know what you think? I’d love to hear how you are bringing in the New Year!
