Teen Vogue Slims Down for 2017

Does anyone else just love paper? The feel? The smell? The colors? I know...I get it. We need to be moving with the times. The time of digital everything, smart gadgets, and microchips. I do appreciate the capabilities of the digital world but, I still love, even prefer paper. If I could write all of you this blog post on cute, navy and gold stationery, and put it in your mailbox with a darling floral forever stamp, I would! Anyway, I digress...but this is why I am always excited when print magazines stay, well, in print.
