goodbye little barn

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetIf you couldn’t already guess from the title of this post, I have some news to share with all of you. We have officially sold our home, The Little Barn. I really can’t believe that I am writing these words. Our journey with this particular home began over two years ago when we began looking for property outside of the city that we were living in. After settling on an empty lot, we had TLB constructed. It was finally finished just over one and a half years ago. At the time, we loved it.

We didn’t really take into consideration the possibility of a family or designing home for children. Those factors are ultimately why we are moving. It is just not ideal for our growing family. So, back we go into the city, and to the same neighbourhood as our second home together, Little Green. Our new home is only two blocks away from our beloved old green house. It is also the same colour, but only much bigger. We have aptly named it Big Green.

Friends, I will be taking a break from blogging. We get possession of our new home in two weeks, on August 26. As if my life wasn’t busy enough with this move, my masters program also begins on August 24. Lastly, it is Remy’s half birthday on August 25. I will therefore return here sometime in September.

  4. An ode to Little Barn:
    There you sit on the prairie
    Wondering who will now care for me?
    Your walls are tall and strong
    I promise you won’t feel empty long.
    You were built with Joy and love
    We will always be with you and share the same stars above.
    Adios little abode.

  • 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.
