Today I heard that Mary Engelbreit will be closing the doors of her magazine publication. While I never subscribed to this magazine, I was sad at the news. I know that she and her staff put themselves wholeheartedly into this publication and I mourned for them. A few weeks ago it was Country Homes closing its doors.
This got me thinking about an old friend of mine who passed away years ago, Victoria Magazine. Do you remember her? The gorgeous photos and writings in this publication filled me with endless inspiration and peace. I had been faithful to Victoria even when I disagreed with some of the changes she made over the years. I miss her inspiration and above all the content found in her pages. I still pore over the old Victoria and let her photos and words fill my mind with beauty.
I know there is a new Victoria in town and while she is lovely in her own way, she will never be a replacement for my dear old friend.
