From Our Readers: Prized Copies of Real Living Magazine
In celebration of our 12th anniversary, our readers share the copies they've kept through the years
While reviewing our inbox for questions from readers, we were surprised to see a message from Real Living reader Mary Flor Cardenas-Sabordo. She sent a photo of her December 2009 issue of RL with the sweet caption: "This magazine is old but I took care of it a lot!"
It warms our hearts to know that you have been keeping old copies of the magazine! True to what our EIC Rachelle Medina shared, reading RL every month is like "having a designer on retainer for only P140." We called for more photos of the magazines that you have at home and we're sharing it here. If you also have a copy that you want to share, feel free to send it to us!
