Where They Came From...
I’m a little late with this post (what else is new, I’m a little late a lot) in that I picked up the first copy of the new magazine, Magnolia Journal, a couple of months back & am just now writing about it.
It is a wonderful magazine, another score for the now power couple, Chip & Joanna Gaines. They seem to have the Midas touch in regard to everything they do. Having read their book (received two copies for Christmas!), I learned things weren’t always good for them financially & in fact they were on the verge of bankruptcy when their tv show was picked up by HGTV.
In addition to their tv show, book & magazine, Joanna has design contracts for lines of furniture, rugs, pillows & even paints that bear her name. The couple developed & owns The Silos, an ever expanding shopping complex in Waco, Texas. The American public is in love with these two & their train shows no signs of slowing down.
I’m not going to lie, I’m more than a little jealous of their success. I also have to say I think they deserve it. They have not only worked hard to get where they are today but they also seem to be holding on to what a lot of folks lose sight of once they’re successful. The Gaines’ appear to genuinely love each other, spend time with their kids & best of all, haven’t forgotten where they came from…k
