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?

  • 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.
