It's here! Apronology magazine and my article!




here is a little preview.....The apron pays tribute to both my grandmothers who meant the world to me and the article included a quote from me regarding that very thing. They would be so darn happy for me that it brings tears to m eyes...the little by line I also took a picture of. Olivia is going to be thrilled. Yes, They got my name wrong half the time, the other half right but I am so thrilled, I don't care. Next time I will be picky!!! This magazine is stuffed with some of the best aprons I have ever seen...Over a hundred of them! ENJOY. Now the mail lady can quit looking in her rearview mirror.
