Visiting Coco

Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m a magazineaholic… (You say: “Hi, Sarah”) Yes, it’s true. I am addicted to magazines. Not cigarettes. Not alcohol. Not lattes. Magazines.

Did you miss me?

At first glance, it appears that I’ve gone into hiding. Not so. I have simply been out of town, and while I had hoped to keep up with frequent posts, it didn’t happen. The good news is, I’m back, and I’ve collected content along my journey to Chicago to share with you, so stay tuned! …
