Country Home...No Longer

Bad news today...Country Home is joining Cottage Living in heaven. Yes, it is true. Country Home is no longer. Lack of ad buys and decreasing circulation led to the magazine's demise. According to The New York Times, in 2008 Country Home had 25 percent fewer ad pages than in 2007. The March issue will be its last.

I just don't know what I am going to do. I have to admit, I bought the February issue of Country Home a couple weeks ago and as I was skimming through it, I thought...I miss Cottage Living deeply...ha..but I suppose this can be my new favorite. There were a lot of cute spreads and (now ironically) it had more content and less ads than Country Living...Better for us readers I guess, but not so great for business.

The February issue had a darling spread on cute and functional organization ideas...perfect in time to fulfill those New Year's resolutions!

Girls' Night!

Danielle, Taisja, Me, Beth, Hailey, Anj, Heath and Holly
(Hailey-I stole this pic from you because I didn't have my camera...so thanks girl!)
The other night a bunch of my high school friends got together for a much needed Girls' Dinner at Paradise Bakery. It was so much fun to see everyone and catch up! Thanks for the fun night (and thank you Dan for planning it!). See you next month!
