Suwanee Broadway In The Park Shows How Good Urbanism Makes Happier Citizens [Photo Recap]

 

Pictures don't lie. Suwanee Town Center Park is full of green ogres, meddling kids, and lots of happy people. The reason? The city of Suwanee, one of the nation’s 10 Best Towns for Families by Family Circle magazine is hosting a free live performance of Shrek The Musical and “Shooby Doo”. The Suwanee performances mark the first amateur production of Shrek The Musical in Georgia.
We always try to pick something that will appeal to audiences of all ages,” says Director Patty Etherton. “The writing for Shrek is so fresh and wonderful. I laughed out loud and smiled all the way through it.”


The 2013 show is the seventh Broadway in the Park performance produced by Suwanee Performing Arts. The production included about 75 mostly high school and middle school cast members, a stage crew of about a dozen, and volunteers. 
 

Cities that provide easy access to cultural and leisure amenities not only promote happiness but creates a feeling of connectedness among its residents. It was very refreshing to see so many individuals who don't know each other interacting, laughing and having casual conversations. 
 

Shrek The Musical and “Shooby Doo” served as the primary summer fundraiser for Suwanee Performing Arts, a non-profit "dedicated to enriching the community by bringing opportunities for participation in and appreciation of the performing arts."


Suwanee is a city with an unique combination of safe, friendly neighborhoods with excellent open spaces and environmental preservation, award-winning schools, and city amenities. Suwanee's urbanism strategies are big, bold and game changing. 
 
 
When it comes to its residents happiness and wellbeing, Suwanee is one of those rare cities that actually values the opinions of their citizens, whatever they may be, and encourages citizens to be involved in a very hands-on way. Is this type of forward think that has made Suwanee one of the best places to live and raise children.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*



When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 


I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
