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

  • Hello, Instagram

    This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith. To say that she has a piece of my heart would be an understatement.

last minute gift ideas

DSC_7958-copyThis post was originally inspired by Rubyellen’s Three Easy Gift Ideas on her blog CAKIES. While I couldn’t think of any friends or family members specifically that would relish her handcrafted gifts, I thought that each were so simple yet inventive and definitely needed a mention. 

These are some of her selections.

  1. I would hang a stocking and would love a stocking….. But I would have to fill it myself!! Remember Mr. Bean? He wrapped his own present. And I think it was Teddy by hats what I feel like!!!
