A Few Words from Dolly Parton

I am a huge fan of magazines. I should really count how many subscriptions we have at our house. We all get a pile of magazines. Anyway, there are some I read right away - US Weekly or People and Time. Others, I save for special occasions. I will only read Glamour or Cosmo in the tub or on the plane. My cooking mags are easy to skim and read over and over again. I have a pile of some others in my bedroom and I am trying to whittle it down - some are fairly old. I just read a Ladies Home Journal from March 2008 over the weekend. I am glad I did! 1) I found a recipe for a dessert I made for a meeting tomorrow. 2) I found an amazing quote from Dolly Parton on friends. Seems strange, I know but it really spoke to me:

"I think there is nothing in the world like girlfriends. I have five sisters and every single one I could tell anyone on earth - just like they can with me. For me, (the perfect night) is to be with friends where you can be your perfect self. Or your imperfect self. Whether you eat too much, drink too much, talk too much and get pissed off. Where you can feel like any emotion you have is okay. To cook, to laugh, to eat. To gossip, try to solve problems. Just being able to vent can be the best healing and therapy."

Love it!

I love Dolly! She has several of my favorite quotes.

My favorite magazines are Self and Real Simple. . . are those on your subscription lists yet?
