At times, when I write these monthly wrap-up posts, it feels as if I’m writing it from a third person perspective. So much takes place, which always varies greatly from the month before it, all while feeling like a lifetime ago. I always feel removed from the events after they occur. Does anyone else experience those same emotions when looking back on previous blog posts?

Home Series 13Speaking of The Little Barn, I discussed the outcome of its beautiful Tongue and Groove Ceiling in this post. I had initially blogged about stain colours in December with Fifty Shades of Grey.

Home Series 3A few days ago, I not only published the first house in my Home series, but also gave an extensive house tour of The Little Barn!

WIB 1-6I published two fashion posts. The first was what’s In The Store. The second was What I Bought.

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 9.05.25 PMFinally, last, but certainly not least, I revealed to you that we were going on an American Road Trip for 8 days. We are currently on this holiday, and as I write this (only one day prior to leaving), I hope that we are enjoying ourselves. This post has by far received the most comments to date! I got so much amazing feedback from you, and we are trying our best to see all of the sites that you mentioned. So thank you!

Have a wonderful week, friends!

    First, the barn looks pretty, one I’d consider a dream home. I know what you mean about feeling removed about some things. I get those moments too sometimes. Short do looks good on you by the way.

  • 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.
