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

  • Hello, Instagram

    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

a beautiful mess : video home tour

IMG_1531Hello, friends! Remember on Friday when I said that I had a massive blogging surprise for you all? Well our home is going to be featured on A Beautiful Mess

Honestly guys, this website is the reason why I first began blogging. Before hearing about it nearly three years ago, I was obsessed with the page Apartment Therapy. I loved that they would publish posts a few times a day, and loved being exposed to different homes from across the world. Yet, I longed for more. I wanted more DIYs and people that I could look up to. My wishes came to fruition when one day AT posted a craft tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. I clicked on the link, not knowing what to expect. My life was literally changed after that. I instantly fell in love with the pretty and whimsical nature of ABM, and adored Elsie and Emma. A few months later, I created my first blog, which was wholly inspired by all things beautiful and messy.

I am so incredibly lucky to be on their website for their own ‘At Home With’ series. In honour of this achievement, I’ve created my first video tour of our new and reclaimed home. If you would like past posts on all of the details and DIYs that went into The Little Barn, please click here.

This is one goal in regards to blogging that I can now cross off my bucket list. I hope that my own readers are just as excited as I am. For those of you who are here from A Beautiful Mess, welcome! Please say hello, and stay awhile.

    • Ooh when and where are you moving to?!

      I think that my post will be on ABM in the last week of June. First it was June 9, then June 17, and so far it’s now the last week in June. They have so many schedule changes that I’m just going to wait until it’s published, then provide a new blog post with the link.

      Eeeek!! :-)))


  4. Love your home, and love that Pendleton blanket draped over the bed! So cozy.
