Remember back when I talked about my Southern Living angst and how I was going to give it another try because they were offering a one-year subscription for $5? If not, you can read about it here.
Well, yesterday the first copy of my $5 Southern Living subscription came in the mail and I have to say, "Southern Living, you complete me."
Really. Flipping through the pages of that magazine brought back a peaceful, easy feeling like I haven't had in a while. It was like welcoming an old friend whom I haven't seen in a while back into my home and picking up right where we left off.
I feel more like myself than I have in a long time.
I know this sounds wacky, and it's hard to explain, but until you've held the pages of that beautiful magazine in your hand, looked at the fabulous photos, read the travel tips, gotten some decorating inspiration, and ripped out a few recipes, you really haven't lived life to its fullest.
(O.K. Now my husband thinks I'm a complete heathen. B, just look away.)
Anyway, I've already found about five new recipes I want to try and a paint color that would look oh-so-good in my downstairs bathroom. And I haven't even finished the magazine yet!
I think I'll go bask in the Southern glow for a while. Be back tomorrow.
