Yes, you can be jealous! I got to visit Magnolia Market at The Silos TWICE!
I was seriously like a giddy little school girl on the first day of Summer when I found out that we would be visiting my husband’s grandmother and be just miles from Magnolia Market at The Silos!
Can I just tell you how much I LOVE following Chip and Joanna Gaines through television, Instagram, Facebook, blog . . . the whole nine yards. I kinda love them and watch re-runs of “Fixer Upper” on Netflix like A LOT!
I think I might have a heart attack if I ever had the chance to meet them. (I was seriously hoping that that would happen this summer, but alas, it didn’t happen this time. But, I’ll be back!)
I think one thing that makes me love them so much is that they remind me a lot of Evan and me. I’m not saying that to be cocky. The way they interact with each other and the relationship that they have reminds me a lot of us. I think that’s partly what makes them so endearing to me. Watching them interact makes me miss Evan so much and long for when he returns home!
I also love that they are a husband and wife team and work together. That’s something Evan and I are working to achieve. As if we already couldn’t get enough of each other, we want to work together. I know it sounds crazy. But, that’s our dream! We WANT to work together and do it all together! We realize that there will be hardships, and we will not always get along. But, that’s the beauty of marriage and relationships, in general. You learn and you grow! And when God is in the center of it, there is so much beauty and grace in ALL of it.
One day I would love the opportunity to interview Chip and Joanna Gaines and talk to them about the marriage side and how they have grown in their marriage (and worked through the hard parts) as a couple that works together. I think they could provide a lot of insight for all of us who are married or in relationships.
Is Magnolia Market everything it’s hyped up to be? Yes. Yes, it is!
Granted, the prices are not for the every day, average budget. But, there is so much lasting beauty in what they sell, that it’s worth spending the little bit extra. You know that when you buy things from Magnolia Market, you are buying something that will last and will bring with it a warm memory.
When you buy something from their store, you almost feel like you’re gaining a tiny piece of Chip and Joanna. I know that sounds a little strange, but it’s true. Anyone who has watched the show and has the same endearing feelings towards them would agree. (And no, I am not getting paid to write this post or all these really nice things about them. They are just that awesome!)
When you watch them, you feel like they are your best friends and are the kind of people you want to sit down and have a cup of tea (or coffee, in my case) with.
One thing that I love about the Gaines family is that they support the military and offer a military discount to all service members. That just made them even that much more endearing to me!
There store is beautiful in every way. There are two floors with steps (or an elevator for those who need it) in between. So many beautiful, rustic things fill that store, I can’t even explain it all!
Magnolia Market at The Silos is also very attractive to me because of how family friendly it is. You wouldn’t think of a home decor store being family friendly, but the Gaines’ have made it possible! They have an entire outside area filled with a large section of nearly grass (turf) and cabinets with balls and games. There are covered picnic areas and wooden swings. They also even have vendors with food, drinks, ice cream, you name it . . . it’s there!
The fun doesn’t stop there. They also sell their herbs, seeds and other home-grown plants. I mean, talk about amazing!
They even recently opened up a bakery. Sadly, I was there about two weeks before it opened. But, I can’t wait to go back and try all the delectable treats!
The Silos is an incredible experience and one that no one should miss! Even if you can’t buy anything, it is well worth the visit just to roam and look around.
They truly make you feel at home!
