{things to love} about sunset magazine

strawberry ice cream pie in the test kitchen
1. Two words: test kitchen.
2. Seeing multiple employees use fitness orbs instead of chairs at their desks.
3. The multitude of beautiful props in the photo studio. Gorgeous plates and fabrics galore!
4. Hearing business owners instantly brighten up when they find out Sunset Magazine is calling.
5. The tiny gym that's always empty. (And watching Gilmore Girls while I work out.)
6. The beautiful test garden and the fact they they grow tons of their own food.
7. Surprise birthday cakes/ice cream/pies.
8. Wisteria, tulips, and generally lovely flowers everywhere.
9. Marking up stories so that they're covered in tons of colors.
10. Being part of a wonderful team that produces an amazing magazine.

The past 12 weeks went by faster than I could have imagined. I got to intern as an editorial assistant for Sunset Magazine and realized that there's so much I love in the world of magazine journalism. Unfortunately, my internship ended on Friday but up until now I've never really wrote about how much I loved the place. (Maybe it's because I was working 20 hours a week on top of being a full-time student). Even while I was there, it was so amazing to be part of the Sunset team and directly interacting with so many stories in the magazine (the food and travel stories were my favorite, of course). The most gratifying feeling was seeing all of our hard work in print. The feeling is indescribable. I learned so much about the West that my wanderlust heart has been eager to take trips to places like Louisville, CO and Albuquerque, NM.

Fortunately, I'll be back again at the end of April to do some freelance work. And who knows what could happen from then.
