what i bought.

i am not a bag lady. now i don’t mean the classic bag lady that you see wandering the streets of your city. (while unfortunate, that is a whole other topic that i wouldn’t dream of touching.) what i mean is i don’t own a lot of purses, nor do i have any desire to. some girls love shoes, some love handbags, i love bodysuits. :-)))

in the past, i have tried to purchase at least one good bag to last me the entire year. that’s right. i wouldn’t switch up my purses to match my outfits. whatever i was wearing that day, my annual bag would be there to complete the look. if it did clash, then i went sans purse. i’m not completely hopeless, after all!

this year, my brand of choice was betsey johnson. always flawless and fairly inexpensive, i love the unique and feminine designs that adorn her bags. where did i go for the best price? ebay, of course!

i think that this little beauty will do for the next year. :-)

    I was surprised when you were carrying a new bag! You finally retired that ratty old one! My favorite go to is my black oversized studded Betsey Jphnson. Remember ‘We all love BJ’. :))))))

  • 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.
