Dude, Put Down That Domino

I can hardly keep track of all the home decor magazines that Sherry reads. Domino, Elle Decor, Cottage Living, Better Homes & Garden, House Beautiful, O at Home and a seemingly endless list of other titles with the word “house” or “home” wedged in there somewhere. Any attempts I’ve made to share this interest with her have left me feeling somewhat confused and emasculated.

Thank goodness the editors of Men’s Health came to my rescue and just introduced Men’s Health Living, the self-declared “world’s first home magazine for men.” I think this calls for a chest bump – who’s with me?

Men’s Health Living

I snagged the premiere issue on our way out of town last weekend, which meant Sherry actually took the first peek at it while I was busy navigating our Nissan through the Appalachians (a very manly endeavor, I should point out).

She fell in love with it. Not because it was girly (phew), but because it was well written and had a great collection of articles and advice…many of which were read aloud to me, so I can attest to its quality. It also got the stamp of approval from Sherry’s BFF who once worked at one of those pubs with “home” on the cover.

Here are some of the things we learned:

There’s plenty more in there, but I’m determined not to spoil it. I want you to go buy the issue – no matter your gender – because I need this new mag to be successful enough that it’ll start offering subscriptions. I can’t let it join the recently canceled Blueprint in that big magazine rack in the sky.

    Okay, I know this may be a little belated, but I am dying to find this magazine for my husband. Where have you seen it? I’ve tried my local B&N and grocery store to no avail. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
