Snowed In I'm Ashley Pahl, the writer behind She Makes a Home, and the creator and editor of Snowed In Magazine.
Writing for a magazine has always been a dream of mine. It doesn't seem that long ago that I made my first magazine on construction paper, and cold-called my relatives for subscriptions. Now with the internet, I am able to make a long-time dream come true with my first-ever magazine, Snowed In. Why Snowed In? Why focus on the holidays? The holidays are special to me. I feel happy and invigorated in November and December. I believe that the holidays are for everyone â€“ from Thanksgiving to the New Year, these holidays span beyond religion. The holidays are a time of charity and giving; family and friends; peace and thankfulness; creativity and imagination; tradition and acceptance; good cheer, good food, good community, and a sense of wonder. While these articles focus largely on family, entertaining, and gift giving, let us not forget to spread plenty of love and goodwill during this holiday season. Thank you all for reading, and a BIG thank you to all of my sponsors and contributors who helped make this magazine possible. Warmest of Wishes, Ashley
