I was at the grocery store yesterday and as I approached the checkout I spied the above magazine cover. Instantly recognizing Chip and Joanna Gaines of "Fixer Upper" fame, I was eager to take a peek. A quick flip through the pages of The Magnolia Journal's premier issue told me this was a magazine I was going to like. At $7.99, it's a bit of a splurge, but if a magazine has really good content and is one that I'll hold on to for a long time, I consider it worth the money.
When I got home, I quickly put away the groceries and immediately headed to the porch with my new magazine (postponing chores like laundry and emptying the dishwasher). I'm really impressed with the layout, the content and the writing and photography. I placed an order for a 2-year subscription. The spring 2017 issue will be the first mailed and should arrive in February. Unfortunately The Magnolia Journal is only a quarterly publication -- I wish it were at least bimonthly, it's that good. If you see it in your local store, be sure to check it out. Or subscribe online.

Joanna Gaines also has a blog called At Home with recipes, DIY projects, renovations and gardening tips. We don't have cable so I can't watch current episodes of "Fixer Upper" on TV, but I have watched many previous episodes online. In general I really like her style. Some of the accessories she uses aren't necessarily my taste, but the overall look is one that I really like.
