Did I tell you Laura Mayes and family are at La Cressonnière for a visit? It’s so great to have them here!

They came bearing gifts — bags and bags of American candy, plus a stack of magazines. Heavenly! It was especially fun to open the July issue of Better Homes & Gardens and see the 50 Ideas Under $50 article. I’m one of several bloggers who contributed to the article (months and months ago!) and it was fun to finally see it in print.

I know magazines are disappearing before our eyes, but I sure love reading them. What are your favorite real-live-hold-them-in-your-hand magazines these days?

P.S. — I’m almost done with the list of 50 books. It’s hard to narrow it down! Watch for the post later today.
