Martha_Stewart_Living.2
After reading this review of the latest Martha Stewart Living, I was determined to get my hands on a copy of it. I don't usually cross paths with this magazine, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it perched on top of Judy's stack of ready-to-grab reading material while over at my in-laws' house yesterday. How convenient!
I eagerly snatched it up and within minutes of setting it in my lap, fell victim to its Christmasy charms. I savored each sleek page; admiring elegant holiday tables, studying ornament how-to's, and hastily jotting down recipe ideas.
When finished, I closed the glossy masterpiece, swelling with a fresh supply of zeal with which to embark on my Christmas endeavors. Equipped with my notes on spiced chocolate egg nog, old-fashioned candied citrus peels, and iced peppermint cookies, I am prepared to take to the kitchen and make all of my holiday dreams come true.
All this to say, I think this magazine is worth an extra dime and a tiny stretch of your time.

As a birthday gift to me, my mother-in-law gives me a subscription to this magazine every year. It is a fun little "luxury" that I enjoy each month, and actually, the only magazine we receive at our household. Worth it. :)

I have to admit. I love this magazine. Thanks for the reminder. It sounds like a happy issue.

I haven't read my copy yet - now I can't wait! It is a pretty decent magazine most months - always something good inside.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
