sunny day real estate

Because if I can’t be honest on my own blog, then what is the point of having one? So here it is. Geoffrey and I are currently on the market for an acreage. I was so hesitant about writing about our journey thus far simply due to the fact that Little Green has been such a huge part of our lives and Hello, Scarlett. From our story of purchase, to our renovations, to our change in decor, our home has been instrumental in our lives over the past year and a half. I cannot believe that we have lived here for less than two years. It feels much longer, but in the best way possible.

On this particular day that we went and looked at an acreage, I went and ran a few unrelated errands beforehand. The day began with a trip to my dependable dollar store, followed by a much needed coffee break. My tattoo appointment came next, then home, a late drive-thru lunch with the husband, and a few hours of driving around looking at empty lots and acreages. Believe it or not, the was the second Saturday that one of us had a tattoo booked before a showing (Geoff started this trend). Our scheduled viewing was at the little, grey acreage that you can see in the last three photos. Although it’s close to what we are looking for, it’s still not our dream property. However, it’s only a matter of time.

    Never fear little green I have your back. You are all spruced up standing taller standing straighter sealed all your leaky spots scrubbed until you sparkled and now they want to get rid of you? Hang on little home lets see if they will change their minds.

  6. Good luck on your search! And I’d love to see the new ink.

  • 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.

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
