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!

  • 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.
