It’s raining outside on this Saturday morning … in fact, it’s the last day of the 2016 year. I just finished eating a homemade breakfast my lovely hubby cooked for us (Belgian waffles with honey … and an espresso to compliment). It was a rare, leisurely moment when we could not be hurried along because our pre-teen, Max, was still snoozing away, and Amelie was at a sleepover. We carpe diemed it … we even opted for a little game of chinese checkers to entertain our mood … D’oh – he won!
So, what do I do after starting a rainy morning like this? I pick up a magazine from the stack I have ignored for months. On the top: Luxe Magazine (Houston edition). I’ve admired the cover for some time (it’s orange – are you surprised?!?!), but have never had the opportunity to spend the thirty minutes reading thru it. Come to think of it … I think I’ve got a borderline addiction with collecting pretty magazines knowing I won’t have the immediate time to escape within them. But, I can’t let go because I am convinced when I do have the time I won’t regret the escape it gives. It’s like a paper gift …
Today, I did it – I feel achieved already 🙂 I actually thumbed thru the magazine with no hurry … and no worry. It was divine – just what I had imagined. For a moment, I imagined I was the girl walking thru the pages in my cute pink, knee-length skirt … with a light, cream shirt … color pop stiletto heels and a cute clutch to tie it all in. I found a house I adored … an entree way I could easily welcome guests … a dining room my friends and I could laugh the evenings away while clinking our glasses of champagne … and the cozy couch I’d curl up in once my guests had gone and the kiddos wanted to play one more board game before calling it a night.
Welcome to my magazine home!
And now it is time to snap the fingers and let the bubbles in my mind pop! It was fun letting my imagination frolick thru the pages of Luxe Magazine … what a simple gift.
Are there any other Luxe Magazine lovers out there that get just as carried away as I do? Comment below with your favorite magazine escape … I’d love to hear about it!
