The Magnolia Journal Premier Issue
The Magnolia Mission
I could have ordered a copy online, but I was so sure that I could easily find a copy at one of my local retailers I didn’t. After making eight phone calls in search of this elusive magazine, I couldn’t believe what I heard on the other end of the phone. Each person I spoke with acted as if they had never heard of The Magnolia Journal! I was in total disbelief.
I decided my best bet was to physically go to four different stores because surely I could find one. Nothing, nary a copy did I find. I thought every retailer would have stacks of them lining every aisle. Nay, this was not the case.
So I did what any self-respecting, die hard Fixer Upper fan would do, I ordered a copy online. The wait began.
In the meantime, friends and people I don’t know were posting selfies of themselves with their Magnolia Journal. My sadness grew. There were many others who couldn’t lay their hands on one either.
I only live 2.5 hours from Waco Texas. My husband suggested I should just drive there to pick up one. I laughed! That would be crazy right? (I did entertain this idea for about 5 minutes)
As luck would have it
On a whim, the following day I skipped into my local Wal-Mart. I decided to search one more time.
I searched every checkout stand top to bottom.
Just when I thought all hope was lost, I found one lone copy shining like a beacon in the night. I didn’t care that I already ordered one, it went right into my cart!
Obviously, I don’t need two copies of the same issue, so I am giving one away! It’s my small way of saying “thank you” for reading, commenting, and sharing all my words on here. You have no idea how much I appreciate you. I would love to be able to send you all one but…it was hard enough to find two.
If you haven’t seen a copy, here’s a peak.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
There’s something for everyone food, family, fashion, and of course interior design.
It’s the kind of magazine you hold onto and re-visit again and again, finding something new each time you read through it.
I could go on and on, but I know you just want to know how to win, so I am making it super simple to enter.
