Happy New Year!

Every year most of us make New Year’s Resolutions. This year with how much time we have had to spend at home, we thought linking you to some articles on New Year’s Resolutions for your home maybe appropriate and helpful. Making resolutions to improve our environment can also improve our well-being.


Check out these links;


We hope you find this information helpful and that it not only helps you increases the livability but also the value of your home.  

Happy New Year’s from The Marcelino Team!

    New Years Eve at Times Square




    “Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NYE 2021 will NOT be open to the public this year — but there will be live performances, and we hope all of you will enjoy the virtual celebrations safely from the comfort of your own home. New Year's Eve 2021 might look a little different than usual, but one thing that will never change is the ticking of time and the arrival of a New Year at midnight on December 31st. Celebrate with us virtually in an enhanced celebration that will bring Times Square and the Ball Drop to you no matter where you are.”

      Holiday Vacation Activities!


      Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year & Enjoyable Holiday Break!

      Found this article online from The Seattle Times

      “23 fun activities to do with kids using stuff you already have at home, as you wait out coronavirus closures” By JiaYing Grygiel

      We thought it would be a great article to share for this holiday break, while we are encouraged to stay home.  The activities are creative and fun, plus the article provides the recipes for homemade Play Dough and Slime.

        Holiday Lights 2020

        Safe Holiday Activity



        How about a nice warm car ride with snacks and drinks to view some beautiful local holiday light displays.

        Here is a google map with a list of local light displays marked, when you click on a list item or a map item you see the photo and location of the display.  CLICK HERE to plan your light viewing adventure!

        (These lights were photographed by Burlington Free Press staff as a sample of the creativity on display throughout Chittenden County.)

          Recipe Ideas from The Marcelino Team

          I am a big fan of creating personalized gifts as they always seem a little more meaningful. Last year I came up with the idea of creating The Marcelino Team Recipe Books for our team with a collection of recipes from people within our office and from some of our current and past clients. It appears I did a great job asking for recipes, telling them I was bored with cooking the same stuff all the time and needed ideas, no one had any idea what I was doing! I hope you will enjoy trying some of these out with your family. Happy Holidays! ~Shannon

          *The recipes that will be shared here were not necessarily created by The Marcelino Team or anyone within the office, unless noted. They may have been taken from a book or website and we claim no ownership to them.*


          Lets Start with Breakfast! This was not in our Recipe Book but it I think I will be adding it!

            As the challenging 2020 comes to an end we want to thank everyone for being patient while we had to adjust how we work. We are grateful we were able to still help people move forward in their real estate ventures!

            This year the Holidays are a little different due to gatherings and events being discouraged. We found some great virtual ways to connect with friends and family! 

            5 Ways to Connect Virtually with Friends and Family

            This Holiday Season - by Carlett Spike, AARP, December 7, 2020

            1.   Do some cooking together

            2.   Schedule a virtual movie night

            3.   Try crafting activities
