    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham 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.

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.
