Our blog friend over at Country Doctors Wife, reminded me of some very sad news today. Most of us have been aware of it. Some have already blogged about it. Our much loved Country Home Magazine is closing its doors. Or should I say pages.
This particular issue has been read at our house with a side of these,
Well, not really, but almost. I, like all of you have been receiving Country Home Magazine for so many years, I don't even remember when I first fell in love. I mean, when I first started reading it. (don't worry, Blue Eyed Husband already knows)
I've fallen in love with country style because of this magazine.
I've learned how to enjoy and use what I have within our home and not spend money we don't have, while still making it a warm, inviting place to be. This magazine has brought me many hours of enjoyment, excitement, and inspiration.
When I saw the last issue on the Wal-Mart rack, I panicked and almost bought everyone with hopes that if I did, they would change their minds. (Silly I know)
I like all of you, will really miss Country Home Magazine. How will I get my Karen Weir-Jimerson fix? She is the one that encouraged me, (unknowingly of course), to write my blog. She is so good, she makes it look doable to write about the things and people you love.
I'm grateful for the years we've had together Country Home. How does Nat King Cole sing it...
When I fall in love... It will be forever... or I'll never fall in love...
When I give my heart... It will be completely, or I'll never give my heart...
Country Home, you dear magazine, friend, will always have my heart. (Just don't tell Blue Eyed Husband)
