It's surreal to think...but one year ago we were on lockdown. Toilet paper was scarce. The world was coming to an end. In short, we needed our mommies more than ever. Many of us couldn't even visit our parents for fear of infecting them! What a difference a year makes (thank you Pfizer and Moderna)!
2021 is your year to appreciate not only who Mom is for you, but also who the local Atlanta restaurants are who pivoted through 2020 and lived to tell about it. Make this one count by dining out or bringing in some of these incredible spreads from these amazing places:
