In My House: The Magnolia Journal

Maybe it’s just the old print journalist in me, but in today’s digital age, I love the feel of a real magazine with good quality paper and beautifully laid-out spreads. I subscribe to only a few and it’s a special occasion when they arrive in the mail.

I recently flipped through a copy of The Magnolia Journal in a waiting room. I am familiar with Chip and Joanna Gaines’ HGTV show Fixer Upper, but had only seen a few episodes. I fell in love with the magazine immediately and was super thrilled when my mom gave me a subscription as a Mother’s Day gift. The summer issue arrived yesterday!

I expected to find lovely images in the magazine, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing. Further, each issue has a one-word theme. This one was confidence.

Of course there are also gorgeous decorating tips and fantastic-looking recipes scattered throughout.

The magazine only comes out quarterly, but that makes seeing it in the mailbox even more special. This is one to save, share, and flip through again and again.
