The world lost a blogging queen last night. Emma, Debucher Baguette, founder of this blogging empire passed away suddenly, and unexpectedly in Mom’s arms. We are all so heartbroken and devastated to say the least. The coming days may be quiet on the blog and our social media, but we will be back. Emma would want her empire to carry on, and she did leave Madison, the responsible hound, in charge.
Yesterday, we had planned to do our Halloween photo shoot, but Emma was suddenly in the hospital. Mom came home for a short time, and we decided Emma would want us to carry on with Halloween. We donned our costumes, and pose with all our pumpkins. Emma would want the post to go out on time.
Debucher Baguette, the blogging queen, was all about smiles and laughter. Bailie and I plan to keep that theme running. When we took our Halloween photo, Emma was improving, and we anticipated her coming back home today. I’m a Mexican hound, and Bailie is a fashionista sheriff. Emma’s pumpkin was her placeholder. The debate last night was to remove the photo, or post it. Emma would want us to share our photo with you to add some happy to a very sad time. She was born on 9/11, and always said, although the world mourns on that day, she was born on that day to show people there is good in the world, and there is always a reason to smile and laugh.
Do something silly today to honor Emma. Bailie and I will be blogging from here on out. Losing Emma was so sudden and unexpected, we need a bit of time to regroup, and find our new path through life without our fearless leader. Emma has a lot of blogging obligations lined up, and we intend to fulfill them all. We hope you stay with us, mourn with us, and learn to love this blog as much with Bailie and I as you always did with Emma.
Love you forever, and miss you so much, Emma.
