The summer when I was 11, my cousin Michael and I sat on the front lawn for hours at a time and memorized the June issue of Martha Stewart’s magazine. I still remember the melon popsicles on the cover, and how we tried to convince his mom to take us to the grocery store to buy heavy cream so we could make them. We never ended up making the popsicles, but it did start our common love of the original diva of domesticity.
Fast forward 16 years – Michael is now a style editor at House & Home magazine in Toronto, and one of the most talented and creative people I know. Check out his blog here to see why I am so jealous of my favourite cousin!
