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 goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift. My little lovebug doesn't always want me for naps lately, but when she does, it makes me feel warm, loved, and needed. Also, look at her hand tucked inside of my shirt. I'm melting.
