About two and a half years ago, give or take, I shared this fabulous compiled-pages-of-entertaining-deliciousness magazine with you all.
Aah, Mingle. You had me at your title.
It comes out only four times a year, and while Pinterest has provided countless hours of inspiration in-between issues, nothing compares to the feeling of the latest issue of this treasure in my hand, as I carefully peruse each and every page.
I realized that the latest issue was out when I spotted it at Camas Antiques, while The Other Tracey and I were taking a little shopping break during my booth set up. I snagged a copy, and had every intention of giving it to the Other Tracey, for her to read on her flight back home to the Biggest Little City.
She texted me at Christmas time, and had only just then discovered this amazing publication. Can you believe that?! I do not know how I had managed to have never mentioned it to her before then.)
I slid the freshly purchased new issue of Mingle between the car seat and the console and...promptly forgot about it. We loaded The Other Tracey's bag into the car that evening and off we went to the airport. When I pulled in my driveway after dropping her off, I realized I had not given her the magazine.
(Aurgh. I hate it when I do stuff like that.)
I'm finally mailing it to her now, but as long as I forgot to give it to her, I went ahead and looked at it... repeatedly.
(Trace, I hope I didn't dog-ear it too badly.)
(Just kidding. It's in almost-like-new condition.)
I'm sending you the back issues I had here too, since we were both so dog tired by the time we went to bed each night you were here, and you didn't get to really read them.
