“Toot Toot”

Ok, that’s the sound of my horn.
But I guess I’m a-tootin’ it aren’t I?!

To quote myself in high school…


I couldn’t help but share these kind words I have been receiving about the new magazine.  You girls are blowing my mind… so it’s not selfish pride but more like me jumping up and down and all around my living room, waving my arms in the arm like an over-excited maniac when I read words such as…

Angela,I am speechless, the beauty of your publication has left me speechless with amazement and joy.  I have not felt this way about a magazine in a very, very long time.  I almost cried, it is so wonderful!  And there is so much in there!  I had no idea it would be so beautiful, and so chock full of wonderment. No doubt you will be the “next big thing”.  I wish I could describe how thankful I am for your magazine. but I am ……speechless!Bless you, and best of success with everything.  Merci!Kind wishes,   

Angela and Parisienne Farmgirl Team,Gorgeous!  This magazine reminds me of Victoria Magazine before they ruined it!

Parisienne Farmgirl Magazine,Thank you for such a lovely publication!   It’s so inspiring and reminds me of a magazine back home (Holland) called Seasons!  You should be proud!  –Sandy

Wow, I had no idea it would be so big!  I saw the flip book on the side of your blog and that finally pushed me over the edge to order it, because everything looked just drop-dead gorgeous.  Then I opened it up online just to flip through it quickly before heading to bed.  It wasn’t very “quick”; I kept flipping and flipping and flipping.  Yu might want to let people know how big and densely packed the magazine is; $25 sounded expensive for a quarterly at first, now I think it’s a steal!  I could spend all day curled up with some coffee to read this except my four kids actually except to get fed multiple times a day (the nerve!).
Scroll to get pages to turn…

Ahh! Can you stand it??  I am flying high!  You girls ROCK!  And here’s another gal that rocks – Corrina Tough at Je t’aime Photographie.  Corrina wrote the cutest article for PFM… she took francophiles favorite movie; “Amélie” and gave us her version of the recipes mentioned in the movie… here’s a page from her article…

Corrina is a photographer who specializes in momma’s
 and children but I love these unique dancer photos too!  

Obviously I’ve got a ton of enthusiasm about our new mag… I TRY to not yack about it all the time here on my blog.  I hope you will humor my enthusiasm when I do!!
Soooooooo, did you try the honey wheat?  
Did you eat the entire loaf yourself?
I told you I am back to my fourth Final Fifteen” stage!  
So, let’s strap on our workout shoes and pour a glass of red wine…
What is she talking about?
You’ll see.
Stay tuned.

    I haven’t stopped by here for quite awhile, you have your own magazine? All I can say is I am so happy for you. It couldn’t have happened to a better, more creative person. Now, to take a look at the mag and find out more about it. God bless! Keep on praising God and telling the country like it really is!

    I’m so happy for you and the rest of the team that have put so much love and hard work into this magazine. I don’t spend my money easily…especially being “in between” jobs…BUT I think your magazine is such a good deal and packed full of beautiful things, great articles etc 🙂 🙂 🙂 Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Okay. Well…I guess I know what I’m asking for for Mother’s Day. 🙂 I’m ready to have a little Parisienne Farmgirl in hardcopy right here in my dining room.
    How fabulous for you!

    …and I would like you to know that I have had quite a few (too many?) macarons since tasting yours at a long-ago barn sale and they all pale in comparison. Seriously. You must use the best ingredients EVER. Yours are magic.

    That’s all. Have a perfect night.

    I have bought a copy of PFM and when hubby is out of town next week I’m going to have some me time to open it. an early birthday present to moi! From all the fabulous feedback I can’t wait. Patty/BC

    Oh Angela,
    You deserve all the compliments.
    Praise the Lord Almighty for Blessing us as He does!
    Isn’t it amazing that He can just knock us of our feet when He overwhelms us like that? And then He has you running around through the house (like you are one of the kids (lol) Going Toot – Toot! Ha ha aha

    Well, you will be receiving some (older) Seasons in your mailbox most likely tomorrow or before Tuesday.Do note that they are already 11 years old and have probably improved even more since then!
    I also enclosed some other Dutch magazines. That I think you will like. Now you just need to get a crash course in reading Dutch!
    Which you probably would also be good at!

    Hugs to you Sister!


    And that is too cool being mentioned here on your blog… blush, blush

    It’s great that so many people have sent you such encouraging words!

    I was so happy to see Corrina’s article in PFM! I really respect her viewpoints and have always appreciated her words of encouragement. And I, of course, also loved how she connected the recipe to Amélie–the best movie ever made!

    Bon week-end!
