It was only two weeks ago, during a layover at the train station in Frankfurt to be more exact. To kill some time, we took a stroll through the book store. Large train stations have amazing bookstores. I like to peruse the magazines to see if I can find the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine in the International section. This time, I did not find it in english but in german! As one who channels Martha at times, you can magine my surprise! I was so excited and let out a little “woo hoo”! I did get a few stares but I didn’t care. I almost ran to the other side of the store to show my husband what I stumbled upon.
I did not care that it was in german, even though my german is not really fluent. I thought this would be a great way to improve my language skills too as well as get my monthly Martha Stewart fix in paper!
Unfortunately, my excitement was short-lived. While happily reading my find, I flipped to the last page. Well, my husband did and handed the magazine back to me. Auf Wiedersehen… WHAT!??!! No way!
I did not even know the magazine was being circulated over here until the last issue. 😦 This is the one magazine I would love to receive as it unfortunately does not deliver overseas. I didn’t even care if I had to read it in german. To have a family member send one to me, the postage is $20.00. I’m not that desperate! Am I?
I never saw an issue on the newstand here but then again, I do live in a very, very small city.
At least I can find her on the net but…. it is just not quite the same as sitting down with a cup of coffee or tea, curled up in my favorite chair and losing myself in an issue of Martha Stewart Living.
