Perhaps, one of your fashion focus articles can be about finding good deals on a limited budget....very limited budget. I think in this economy, and with all the other living expenses that we have on a daily basis, people might like to know that they do not have to spend alot of money to have both themselves looking wonderful or their children well-dressed.
These are just my thoughts. Do with them what you would like!
My husband had been a Rotarian for the first few years of our marriage. I was always involved in his club’s fund raising efforts and enjoyed the camaderie there.
After about 10 years of that, a very progressive male Rotarian approached me and asked me if I would ever consider joining the club, “once the powers that be” would approve female members.
I was the first woman in our area to join and had a great time working with children around the world, helping put in wells in third world countries, and doing a lot of local charity work.
My greatest compliment was when one of the senior members of Rotary told me that I was a “much better Rotarian” than my husband!

Ok, so, I have an admission: When an issue of MORE showed up in my mailbox, I was angry and also depressed. I had no idea how I got it - I had not bought a subscription! - and, more importantly, I am only 42! I am not old enough to be reading this magazine! Righteously indignant, I put it in my magazine pile under my coffee table to languish there in perpetuity. Or so I thought...
Tired on this Friday afternoon, kids playing outside below my window, I mixed a martini and spied MORE under my table. Why not? I thought. I AM 42, after all, divorced with two kids, ages 9 and 6. I have earned this tired and maybe someone in these pages feels the same...
Well....I stopped reading only 30 pages in to write to you. WHAT AN AMAZING MAGAZINE! The layout is wonderful, the articles are intriguing and appropriate. I feel like I have come home. I was recently a fan of other magazines, tho sometimes I felt disconnected and did not know why. Now I do. Thank you.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have to get back to reading MORE!
Thank you for your letter from the editor in the April issue. I totally resonated with me. As I read each word I just sat there nodding my head in agreement knowing intuitively where you were going with your thought as I am THERE! As a stay at home mom of 3 (12, 10 and 6) and coming up on my 44th birthday – I definitely have noticed a change in the way I view my world and my interaction with my kids and husband. I thought it was from recently reading the Happiness Project and now reading all 3 books in the 50 Shades of Grey series – but maybe it is just this time in my life. The reason I mention the two books is both seemed to have an effect on my. The Happiness Project, while I was reading it, I kept thinking this would have been really good when I was younger. I had to figure out on my own more or less how to operate that “tiny clown car”. Maybe figuring it out on my own was the only way for me to appreciate now the need to slow down and do the things to help me “live my life fuller, richer and slower”. And in the second book – well I appreciate my relationship with my husband more. Not just the behind the door aspect of it, but the give and take and constant learning that happens in any relationship and as we each change over time learning to adjust and anticipate.
Just wanted to let you know your letter came at the right time for me to reinforce what I was already thinking. Now back on task – I have about 10 more things to fit in “the car” before I pick the kids up from school in 10 minutes.
