is for Magazines.



The past week has been a big one-full of highs and lows. Magazines can be so inspiring. They are full of pictures and stories to capture the imagination. They remind me of hanging out at my parent's house. Whenever my sisters and I go home, we sit around the fireplace in the kitchen and flip through magazines and talk to our mom and dad. First, we catch up on all of the new ones and then we start looking at the old ones that we have read countless times. Of course we get them all mixed up and my parents say they have no idea where the new issues are! My mom has tons of shelter magazines and food magazines stacked up around the house. There is always something different that catches your eye when you look at the old issues. This image reminds me of those moments. Coffee, magazines, and family.
My mom is always saying she is going to go thru the magazines and get rid of the old ones-or worse, stop subscribing completely, but where is the fun in that? Long live our family tradition of magazines, conversation, and loved ones!

  1. I am a magazine junkie. My husband often teases me, saying "How many times can you look at one magazine?" but, I see something different every time. I can't imagine not subscribing either.

  3. I have a tendancy to collect magazines too, but after I read them they are cut up for art scraps. And occasionally I frame a great picture. Hah!
