That's all folks!

I've decided I will no longer be working on Rue Magazine.

The past few months have been an amazing learning experience -- more so than I ever could have anticipated. I appreciate that you all recognize how much work went into creating the magazine, and I thank you so much for all of the support and encouragement over these past four months. I am so grateful for getting to use my journalism degree, for challenging myself with my writing and design, for traveling to New York and San Francisco, and most importantly, for getting to meet all of the talented, accomplished, inspiring people whose paths I've crossed along the way.



  1. Alaina, it was such an honor working with you since June. I cherish the friendship we have made and I know we will be lifelong friends. Love you so much! xoxo

  2. A, take the lovely experiences & friendships your made via RUE to understand this is only 1 step in your life, both professional & personal. The contacts you made will all be there waiting for you on your next project. A stepping stone forward. xx's Marsha

  3. You strike me as a person who puts a great deal of thought, passion, energy into your life... your decisions... your endeavors. I admire you for doing what is right for you, although it may not have been an easy decision. I love this quote, and I'd thought I'd share it with you~

    "After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So, plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers." -Veronica A. Snofstall

  4. Oh wow Alaina, I’m sure it was a tough decision but like all tough decision there is always a reason behind them that justifies it and I’m sure it is for the best, you did a great job and we are all very proud. Other great projects await for you!
    (I’m just bummed you won’t be coming to London....!! I was so excited I might meet you sooner than later! Well one day definitely)

  5. You made an amazing contribution there and it's such a great magazine. I'm sure this is just one of well-executed, gorgeous, and heartfelt projects you'll be working on!

  6. I'm sure whatever you decide to do in the future it will be wonderful. Love what you've done with RUE! Hope you have a great weekend.

  7. As hard of a decision that must have been to make, I'm sure it's the right one for you. Your work is fantastic and you will do great things wherever you go!

  8. A big decision for sure ~ do you know the next project on your horizon?
