we are living our adventure.

DSCN6101DSCN6047 DSCN6097 DSCN6068DSCN6111 DSCN6106 DSCN6104diy number 1.

bedroom wall decal.

this is my first diy on hello scarlett. or, if you are coming from holly and boo, it would be diy number 18. for the sake of a new website, however, i will start at numero uno. :-)

i purchased this decal from urban outfitters and blogged about it here.

i decided to put it in our master bedroom, which also happens to be a loft. i recently painted it a very stark white, since we like certain rooms to feel like a gallery-type setting. i therefore needed something on our walls to ‘pop’. because they are very steep, i had no other choice but to choose something sticky, such as a decal.

i think that this particular one could not sum up our lives together (or love for one another) more!

p.s. i am really excited to be posting this first diy on hs! there will be many more to come, so i hope that you will visit often. :-)

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend! Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift.
