birthday wishes

Hi, all!

Today is my birthday, and I’m just stopping in quickly to wish all of you a wonderful day! I have so much to be thankful for each year, and this year I’m especially grateful. I hope that you also experience overwhelming love and happiness, and that you’re living your best life. We only have one! #YOLO #justkidding #butseriouslythough

See you soon!

Happy Halloween, family, friends, and readers!

Geoffrey, Remy, and I visited yet another corn maze this year. When we were last here, I was pregnant with Miss Remy. This time, she ate popcorn, ran around, threw footballs and squash, and giggled almost the entire time. Gosh, I love fall. I love Halloween! Here are some pictures of our time spent at the Youth Farm Corn Maze.

What are your plans for today? Let me know in the comments below!

Geoffrey is currently out-of-province away on training for a new career. He has been gone for a few weeks and do we ever miss him. Prior to him leaving, we had our last family session of the summer. Look at this scenery. I love where we live. 

This summer cannot end soon enough. We’re so excited to have him back next month!

seventh wedding anniversary

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. How it’s been seven years already is an incredible thought. I truly don’t know what to write to my husband on these special days, for I can never seem to sum up what he means to me.

I will say that seeing how happy he makes our daughter is one of the best feelings in the world. It’s in those moments that I am reassured as to why we chose one another.

It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been so fun and so life-changing. He’s also the nicest man that I’ve ever met. For those reasons, I’ll forever stick by his side.

I love you, Geo.

geoffrey’s many birthday parties

geo-bday-1-1Last week, my husband celebrated his 31st birthday. For five days.

During those five days, we honestly didn’t do very much, except have multiple meals and cakes. I told him that most wedding celebrations don’t even last that long. However, we really didn’t plan for it to continue on for so long. It ended up being the only way that we could see both sides of our family.

geo-bday-40We spent the eve of Geoffrey’s birthday at home having supper with his mum and sister who had come into town. They graciously brought us a cake.

geo-bday-11On his real birthday, he opened his gifts from everyone, including Remy’s first card that she “coloured” for him.

It only lasted about an hour, mainly because we were so nervous and just wanted to get back home to her. It was nice to get out, and now we can say that we left her at least once before she turned a year old!

geobday-19Our plans for Saturday didn’t come to fruition. I spent the day tearing up carpet and working on our new/old hardwood floors. However, that night we watched half of a movie on Netflix after putting Remy to sleep. Does that count?

geo-bday-13Sunday was our final day of celebrating. My sister and family, as well as my step-dad came over for lunch. We had more cake of course.

geo-bday-14All in all I would say that it was a nice, low-key (and long) birthday. I enjoyed celebrating, and I hope that Geoffrey did as well.

  • 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.
