have you seen haveheart

IMG_3142-1024x768Monday, Monday. Where has the time gone? It’s the start of a new week already, but I feel like today should be Saturday. These past few days have been such a whirlwind. Why, you may ask? Well, I’ll get to that on Wednesday! You must all know by now that I have a tendency to leave you guys in suspense. ;-)

Not only is it the beginning of a new week, but it is also the start of a new month! That means that HaveHeart’s June issue just came out. Have you checked it out yet? I am particularly proud of the article that I wrote this month, mainly because it is an entirely different approach from my regular DIYs. This is something that I have been living with for nearly half of my life. Something that I feel very proud about, but do not always receive positive feedback from. It is something that can create a bond between certain individuals, but a barrier with others. It is something that I have been wanting to write about and share with the world especially lately, but did not really have an opportunity to do so up until recently.

If you would like to know what I am referring to, please click here. Then please share on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter! HaveHeart loves people who support and engage other amazing people. That’s what the world should be about, don’t you think?



  1. Hi Emory,
    While I do not have a tattoo myself, I have no problem with others having one (or more). I teach at a small Catholic school. Many of my co-workers have tattoos, which they keep covered at work. You are correct, people can be judgmental (and hypocritical). Although many of our school parents have tattoos (some full sleeves) I think that it would be frowned upon for the teachers to display their tattoos. The 1800’s-schoolmarm-double standard still exists today. However, it is more common nowadays, especially with younger people, so maybe the tide is turning? Clearly, I enjoyed reading your article. :)

    • Joanne, thank you for your comment! I love when one of my posts can create a discussion. I believe it to be the whole point of blogging! There are many double standards still alive and well in this modern world, as we all are aware. Tattoos are only a small fraction of them. While I do not expect everyone to be for tattoos, or even like the idea of them, I do expect at least some level of tolerance. I guess that was the whole point of my article. However, people are going to do and say and think whatever they want, and I have to respect their opinions just as I would expect them to do for me!

      Thank you again. :-))))

      <3 Emory

  • 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.
