What better time to mark your calendars for the upcoming week than Monday morning, or maybe you are seeing this on Sunday.  For me my Making Plans Monday – a trip to Nashville for me is included.making-plans-monday-not-just-paper-and-paint

Halloween is over so many of you think it’s Christmastime. Well, maybe for most retailers it is, but just remember we still have Thanksgiving to celebrate.  Next weeks calendar will give you dining options if you don’t (or don’t want to cook) for your Thanksgiving meal.

Also, there will be a LONG list of holiday activities around the area for you and your family to celebrate, see light displays, or enjoy special events. Ice skating returns in a new location, Enchanted Garden of Lights at Rock City, and EPB Windows will be revealed soon.

If you are seeing this today, there’s still a few events going on which you can enjoy to get you in the holiday spirit.
