Thank You Verandaaaaaahhhhhh! (in Oprah's Voice)



When my April issue of Veranda arrived in the mail yesterday, I literally couldn't handle it.  I was making noises usually reserved for a bucket of fried chicken.  With every turn of the page, I became Chad Ochocinco and proclaimed, "Child Please!" It's goood y'all. Unlike The Suze, I like to pitch a magazine as soon as I've read it looked at the pictures.  I've been so uninspired by the shelter magazines lately, and I often find myself curled up on the bathroom floor crying and whispering please bring back Southern Accents.  However, I will be keeping this entire issue.

  1. I have been reading all day about how great this is and you know what..you are doing this issue justice!! The images are all swoonworthy and I CANNOT wait to get mine!!!! Like you, I have been in mourning over Southern Accents and just bought 42 back copies from two people selling their loot....I had a field day for two solid days, canceled my lunch plans, builder appts. (oops I mean I was sick) just to stay home and pour over each and every one so to have a magazine to get that excited about all over again is big news indeed....cannot wait!!
