Domino Magazine is Back!

One of my all-time favorite magazines, Domino, has gone the way of so many wonderful magazines and become just a fond memory. I was so sorry to see it go that I even bought their book. I keep it on my nightstand. Yup, I'm just that much of a geek. (Here's a link to the book in case you're interested.)

But I'm happy to say that I've read two blogs today announcing that at least part of the magazine is finding its way back!

Brides.com has acquired all of Domino's online archives. SQUEEEE!!!!

Check out the updates I read at La Dolce Vita and CasaSugar. Such exciting news for a Monday. :-) I think I may have to go home and read my book for the umpteen-millionth time.
