By the time I actually met Cynthia Kling, I felt like I already knew her, thanks in part to her stint at Domino Magazine, where she wrote about everything from entertaining annoying house guests to assembling her own pre-fab house. Cynthia is like the wacky and wonderful aunt we all wish we had—the one who lets you borrow her awesome vintage dresses, and then sits you down for a perfect, light, thrown-together lunch from her garden and serves up some harsh but hilarious realities about dating and jobs and the mundane bits of your days. She’s obsessed with flowers and plants (hello indoor gardening, hello flower arranging) and other matters of the home (bright kitchen goods anyone?)—but all in an informal and wonderfully haphazard way. Life just comes together beautifully when Cynthia is around. So it kind of goes without saying that I’m thrilled she’s on board to offer some funny insight into living well.
