Clear Your Mind

The stress level over here lately has been a little unreal. Thing after thing after thing keeps coming up on top of some other things that we were already having to deal with. How is that for vague? I know that these changes, while very stressful (and some of them unwanted), will be worth it in the end. I have complete hope and optimism about the future and where we will be once we make it through this next little while. It's just a bit difficult to remind yourself of these truths while experiencing all the hardship and anxiety. So, we've been taking a lot of walks on the river and in the foothills lately. We ended our day of apartment searching today with a walk around Camel's Back park. And we hit it just as the sun was setting; surely one of the best ways to see this time of day in this city. It almost felt like spring. And, as I looked out at the city skyline and all the way out to the Owyhees in the distance, I was reminded of how lucky I am to call this place home. And to share it with the person I love. And that we'll get through this.

If you've contacted me recently, or I've been promising to email you (sorry Dus!), I am so so sorry. I'm just a little stretched thin. But, I will get back to you!

Trying to think happy thoughts,
xx Emorie


  1. Good luck dealing with whatever it is!

  2. Oh don't worry about the email at all! I am struggling really to get anything done myself with Jonny not here with me and honestly keep forgetting about it myself. i'm sorry to hear you're going through some rough things right now, but glad you could get outside to clear your heads. i love the rustic feel these photos have.

  3. <3 Don't push yourself too hard, and best of luck with everything.

    Emorie, everything happens the way it happens for a reason. How great that you and Will will be getting your own place, I think that is great for you and for your relationship. Think of everything right now as an adventure and a sign from God that all good things happen for a reason:) Good luck
