Weekly Publisher's Note: Helping Your Stress & Thank You Veterans 🎖️

And Looking Towards The Holiday Season!

By Laura McElwain Colquhoun, Publisher Mom, Macaroni KID Pasadena-Severna Park-Glen Burnie November 10, 2021

Hello Friends!

Are you like me?  This past Sunday--the first day of Standard Time is always a struggle.  The early darkness is always a shock to my system.  Thankfully, though, with our unseasonably warmer weather, I'm managing better than most years.

Help For Tired Parents

If you're tired or stressed from the time change, shorter days, or from anything else for that matter, we've got some resources for you in this week's newsletter!  

First off is an excellent article from local nutritionist, Raelynn Torzone, about why our energy levels might be low and what foods will help.

Second, an awesome new business has just opened up in Severna Park that's all about health and wellness, The Yoga Barn.  Check out their impressive list of daily classes.  But wait, there's more awesome news--they're having a Grand Opening Party on Friday, November 19!  It's your chance to check them out for FREE and enter giveaways for more free classes.  

Happy Veterans Day To All Our County's Veterans!

What a privilege it is to live in the land of the free, and THANK YOU to all veterans who have made this possible!  We salute YOU on this Veteran's Day.  

A special shout out to some of my favorite veterans:  father-in-law Tom Colquhoun, brothers-in-law Tucker and Chris Colquhoun, and my dear friends, Oriana Saiz and Jenn Whitehead.  You make us all proud!  ❤️🤍💙

A way to honor our veterans is at the Veteran's Day Ceremony in Pasadena on Thursday 11/11 at 1:00 PM.  

Looking Ahead To Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years!

We will be compiling guides for area Santa visits and other holiday events.  If your organization or business is hosting Santa and/or having any Hanukkah, Christmas or New Years event, please submit them to our calendar here.  I will then take them and compile them into one guide for easy access.

Macaroni KID Pasadena-Severna Park-Glen Burnie will be celebrating the season with giveaway baskets for 3 lucky winners!  We're focusing on the awesome local businesses we have in our area.  If you are a local business or organization who would like to contribute to the basket and put your name (several times) in front of several thousand Macaroni KID subscribers and social media followers, please email me at  More information will also be in next week's newsletter.  

Last, but certainly not least.....
