It's hard to sing with a lump in your throat.

My friends and family know me as a passionate and also emotional person. I find meaning in many things and am very sentimental, which is why I am going out on a limb a bit today to show you some of my vulnerability with this post.

I grew up in the outskirts of Milford, Prince Edward County, Ontario. As kids we would ride our bikes into the village and fill our little brown paper bags with nickel

j and dime candy. No, this wasn't the 1950s, this was the 1990s. Although things have changed a lot in Prince Edward County, many for the better I believe, I was raised in a very simple and traditional rural place with traditional values.

One of our oldest buildings in our little village is slated for demolition. It has been used for many things in my lifetime but in the past several years, left unused, it has fallen into disrepair and my understanding is the current owners will be tearing it down to provide more parking for the B&B they are renovating next door. I understand I may not have all of the information here in full detail, but the issue at hand was brought to my attention when a friend on Facebook shared a Kijiji ad with a picture of the building, offering the original floor and interior woodwork, etc. for $20,000 to whomever wanted to come salvage it. It tugged on a lot of heart strings in my little home community and the ad was taken down. I'm not sure where things stand now, but my understanding is the building will be torn down. It breaks my heart.

I decided spur of the moment while recently shooting some Monday videos in The County to film a song in front of this historical building. It's an important reminder of my childhood and the idea of losing it represents a different type of loss I'm not sure I've ever experienced before.

This post is not to create any type of drama. What's done is done. All I can say is perhaps this is a lesson in appreciating everything around us as much as we possibly can before it's no longer around to appreciate.

Sending lots of love via a big achy heart this morning, but love nonetheless...

Here I am at my Mom's house... again!!!!!

How appropriate for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, no? 😉

You can see my little playhouse in the background that my Poppy built for my sister and I when I was about 8. My Ma's gardens, although at the end of the season, are gorgeous, and the farmhouse I grew up in (Circa 1880s) represents my childhood in every way. The stars shine brighter at Mom's house at night. The sheep that used to live in the barn and barnyard off the back of our property were my first audience members. We have many of the same neighbours as when I was a kid and for the most part, and the little village of Milford .a few kilometres down the road has remained very similar to how it looked when I was growing up (although we really miss Hicks' General Store and the Emporium!).

Just in case it's been a while since you've been home, I hope you can feel like I've invited you to mine for the moment. 🙂

Here's one of my mom's favourite songs...

Happy Monday!

Love,
Emily xo
