ramble tamble.

i know that on hello scarlett, we keep stating that ‘this is my favorite band’ or ‘this is my favorite book’ or ‘this is my favorite such and such’. i hope that instead of being tiring for you readers, it just goes to show that *g* and i have lots of favorites. i look at it as being a good thing, and that we are two people who are easy to please. ;-)

credence clearwater revival is one of my favorite bands. when i was a girl, my mum would always have the golden oldies playing on the radio. thus my current preference for classic hits was highly unavoidable. moreover, for as long as i can remember i have always had an appreciation for ccr. it wasn’t until *g* and i were dating, though, that i bought my first record by them.

“ramble tamble” is the song that i most associate our dating days. i will never forget the first time that my crosley record player played through this song. *g* and i literally stopped in our tracks to listen to the music. after it finished, we played it again and again that night, and almost every night afterwards.

i chose this song specifically today because it is the first day of our week-long camping trip. i hope that if you listen to “ramble tamble” it instills the same feelings of love, contentment, and nostalgia that it brings to me. meanwhile, we and i will be driving up north with our belongings, dogs, and music in tow. :-))))

like john fogerty sings, “down the road i go.”

    And o my goodness I shall miss you! Drive safely. If you see a bear…run in the opposite direction…yes even if you are still in the car. Wear a life jacket at all times. Even if you are sunbathing. You never know when a tidal wave can appear out of nowhere. Carry a map and a compass. I don’t trust G. Better yet carry a hatchet. Might come in handy. Don’t talk to strangers. They are NOT your friends. Boil your water. You don’t know where it’s been. Refer to your local wildlife book. Constantly. Don’t take your eyes off it be aware of your surroundings. Those woods CAN be a threat. And have fun. I love you.

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
