After just completing my 31 day series, I thought I’d take the day off from the blog and writing.  Well, I did take a little bit of time off to read my brand new November/December issue of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll.  As a collector of magazines, especially fall and Christmas issues, I must say this issue is spectacular, and I wanted to let you know all about it.

This magazine has gorgeous photos filled with inspiration for the season, crafts and food…complete with directions and recipes, and heartfelt stories to touch your heart.


November/December Cover of Celebrating Everyday Life Magazine


Jennifer, the publisher of Celebrating Everyday Life, is a blogging friend of mine with a heart of gold.  And that sweet spirit of hers infuses the magazine and makes page after page so fun to look at and so inspiring.

As I flipped the pages, I wanted to let Jennifer know what features I liked best.  When I turned the last page I realized that I enjoyed every single page…there really wasn’t a best…it’s all amazing.  In the past, I have purchased a lot of magazines for a few inspiring photos.  I cannot remember, ever, being so enthralled with holiday issue as I am this one.

If you think I’m a bit over-the-top with my thoughts…you’ll have to see for yourself.  Here’s a preview.



I asked Jennifer if I could do a review for her and she gave me access to the photos you see here.

If you like the magazine as much as I do…please purchase an issue.  I seriously don’t know where you’re going to find another holiday magazine as wonderful as this.

I’m sure as you viewed the video preview, friends came to mind.  Those friends would undoubtedly love an issue as a gift.  When you order yours…and I know you will…order a few more for your friends.  And please let others know about Celebrating Everyday Life magazine on Facebook or other social media.

We’ve been talking about being encouraging here on the blog for the past 31 days.  Here’s your chance to encourage a mom with a toddler who’s been creating and publishing this magazine from her dining room table, while her daughter plays around her feet.  This is a dream of hers, come true.  But, she needs to sell issues in order for this dream to grow and flourish.

“Buy It Now”

I have not been paid to for my review or remarks.  They are simply words from my heart and an encouragement for a friend. 

Together…let’s Celebrate Everyday Life during the holidays and Jennifer as well.


Wishing you An Extraodinary Day!!

    I wanted to mention that I really enjoyed your 31 day series. It was quite inspiring and such beautiful photos. I also love Jennifer’s magazine for the holidays. She shares such beautiful decor ideas. I don’t think I’ve ever visited her, so I’ll have to stop by her blog. Thanks for sharing this!

      Thank you Diane. 🙂 I can’t tell you how much I appreciate hearing that. You might have guessed…but I’ve done more than my share of second guessing myself.
      Jennifer’s blog is just as lovely as the magazine. I know you’ll enjoy following her.
      Hope your weekend is Extraordinary!!!

  3. Beautiful magazine, Diane. Thanks for sharing.
