• Hello, friends. My name is Emory Ann Kurysh. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome to Hello, Scarlett Blog!

  • Hello, Instagram

    My masters program commenced today. This is something that has been 7 years in the making. Every year, since graduating with my bachelor's in 2009, I have applied to various universities for my masters degree. This included universities all over Canada, as well as in Edinburgh, Scotland. While I never thought I would get in, I was always accepted, including getting a full scholarship to attend at Carleton University in Ottawa. Ultimately, I always found a reason to turn them down, or to defer. My family would joke that I was 'the defer queen'. Part of me craved an adventurous life, and yet another part just wanted to settle down. Now, years later, with a husband and 6 month old baby, I am finally going back to school. I doubt if I am any more ready than I was all of those years ago - in fact, I am probably less prepared than I've ever been. But I know that these chances won't always come along. It's time to grow up, stop being so noncommittal, and start instilling good values in my child at a very young age. I suspect that there'll be many sleepless nights, a lot of stress, and even tears, but with that, so much greatness and positive feelings that I haven't felt since attending university. So, ready or not, here I go. And just like that, Remy crawled for the first time today. (It's a good day.) 🙌
Thank you for all of your kind words and support, everyone. Peace out, Instagram community. Catch you on the flip side. ✌️

hello, scarlett giveaway

IMG_9126Hello, friends and happy Friday! I am thrilled to bring to you a giveaway. It’s been a eight months since my last one, so I figured that I am long overdue. The giveaway today is a handmade Travelling Terrarium that comes from the Hello, Scarlett Store. All of the Terrariums in the store come with a unique name that has been based on either its vessel or content. This particular Terrarium is titled, ‘If Nothing Else, At Least I Got A Tin Can.’ Each Terrarium has been carefully filled with rocks, two varying types of moss, one dried flower, and a foreign coin for good luck. These Terrariums are everlasting. They improve the Chi in one’s home. They are the perfect form of greenery for wanderlusts.
