our free best-of special edition


The world can be overwhelming and scary and it's made us feel out of control. We wanted to DO something about it, something that would be helpful and hopefully comforting to everyone around us. In trying to come up with a creative solution, we realized that some of the best articles we've ever written are perfect for this weird lockdown experience all of us have been going through. 

So we're sharing this FREE special edition of the magazine. It's our all-time top favorite pieces about staying in - what you can do for yourself, for your home, and with food. Along with a few couple new pieces specific to what's happening right now.

It's a digital PDF issue at almost 200 pages, including over 20 articles and 80 recipes, complete with live links for easy navigation. We hope this issue gives you positive inspiration and practical tips for living at home right now.
