Next Issue Guest Curator, Jamie Gall
As a lover of all things travel, wine, and food, you can imagine how many magazines I enjoy digging into. What fuels my magazine-obsession even more? The holidays are right around the corner, and each glorious page is filled with winter styles, beautiful beach getaways, and drool-worthy recipes.

Ever since I discovered Next Issue, it’s quickly become my go-to source for reading material every night as I tucker down before bed. And the best part?  Being able to pick and choose what I want to read to fit my mood each evening.

This past weekend, I scoured the latest magazines to find my top faves in the realms of seasonal bucket list items, and my inspirations as a Minnesota girl living in Sonoma, CA. Hope you enjoy!
