have heart

Last week on HSB, I said that I would soon be disclosing two magazine-related surprises to my readers. With the first admission already out of the bag, the second one is this: I am a newly minter writer for HaveHeart Magazine! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, this little girl from the prairies was asked to have her DIYS published on their website. This is an occurrence came most unexpectedly, but that I am welcoming with wide open arms. I am thrilled to be taking on the project not for monetary gain or exposure, but so that I can begin to take writing more seriously. Short of moving to New York to experience the daily struggles in life and love but then selling myself out to GQ for rent and food money, I almost feel like a saner, less selfish, and more cautious version of Hannah Horvath. You know, the season 3 rendition of Hannah. The one that is growing up and coming to a realization regarding the fragile balance between doing what you love and doing what you have to in order to survive.

supplies Life can be busy, complicated, and messy. It can also throw you a welcome curveball when you least expect it. I am embracing my two newest positions in my career right now with open arms. I am letting the world notice me. In true Hannah form, I am saying, “it’s Wednesday night baby, and I’m alive!”

And whoever said that blogging will get you nowhere?

    Well Emma as my dear old dad would say “that’s a feather in your cap”. Good on you oh little quiet one. It’s still waters that run deep.

  9. Congratulations! That’s awesome! :)

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
