My Favorite Things: The Real Simple Thanksgiving Issue

Every year I look forward to a very special day that falls in mid-October. I’m not talking about the anniversary of the day I married my darling hubby, though that falls in mid-October as well.

I am, of course, talking about the day I open the mailbox and find this…


Yes, that’s the November issue of Real Simple magazine. I have been a subscriber to Real Simple for probably close to 10 years and this is the most beautiful, inspiring issue of the year. It features gorgeous table settings, tributes to all things autumnal, and delicious recipes. I usually pick at least one to attempt each year.


I always wait to open this precious issue until I have time to sit down with it and savor each stunning page. Do yourself a favor and pick up an actual copy, because this one isn’t the same online. It’s available at most grocery stores.


This year’s timing was perfect because I’m planning to spend some time reading by a pool on the little anniversary getaway I’m taking with the hubs.


I’m thinking about a drink with an umbrella, some sunshine, and my favorite magazine issue of the whole year. Cheers!
