Hi, friends! I’m Ashlie and I am so excited you’re here!
Here’s a little about me…
I’m a wife to my high school sweetheart and Mama to our three sweet boys. Also, a Mississippi girl who grew up surrounded by pecan trees, sweet tea, front porches, hymn singing, and home-cooked meals. Southern living at its finest. Now I’m raising my own family and attempting to recreate an environment that makes plenty of room for memory making. All of which you’ll see sprinkled throughout my blog and social media.
So much of my life is joyful and I try and find a piece of that in each day. My family and faith are top priorities for me. Life has its ups and downs, especially in marriage and motherhood. Jesus has gotten me through all of it. He is where I find my joy, hope, and purpose.
I started this blog as a way to keep our extended family up to date as we added babies. Over the years as it’s grown, this whole space has given me much more than I ever expected. I’m so thankful and honored to have a community of women who have come alongside me in this journey. My love for people and writing has manifested into a desire for cultivating this community. I found my voice through a keyboard. I learned to share the beautiful side of motherhood, but also speak life into the struggles. The days of my postpartum depression and anxiety were dark. I found it therapeutic to type out my experience and connect with so many of you who were going through the same thing.
In addition to motherhood, other topics you’ll find me touching on are home decor, my faith, beauty favorites, affordable fashion, my fitness journey, recipes, free printables, and of course, all things southern.
Without fail, you’ll find me telling ya how it is. There’s no sugar coating it here. You girls will always see me showing you the beauty and the mess. Through it all, I hope to encourage and inspire you! The pro of the internet is that we aren’t confined to a certain city or neighborhood to find community. You’re always welcome here, friend! I just wish I could make us a cup of coffee and pull you out a chair at my table.
