The Magnolia Journal and a Giveaway

The Magnolia Journal Premier Issue

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, then you already know that I spent two days last week in search of The Magnolia Journal Premier Issue that hit the newsstands last week.

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!

The Giveaway

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.
