I'm Ashley, and this is where I journal our life. I started blogging four months into my marriage in 2007, and it's become one of my biggest hobbies and greatest experiences. I consider myself an artistic, intentional, and passionate person. I am the oldest of four children, and my father is a pastor. I consider this a great privilege and I am so blessed to have been raised in a Christian home. You can read about the places I've lived here. You can read my full testimony here.
My husband and I met in the summer of 2006 through a series of very God-ordained events. Kurt is an anesthesiologist, and we love to travel together. We also enjoy trying new restaurants and watching movies/documentaries together. We are best friends and I'm so, so thankful to have such a godly leader!
I am also the extremely proud stay-at-home-mommy to three beautiful children! Evy (rhymes with Chevy) has the sweetest little personality and is so full of joy. We adopted our precious son Liam from South Korea in 2011. He is our sunshine and has the biggest smile in the world! Although Evy was born to us through pregnancy, the Lord clearly led us to international adoption for our second little one. We have been so blessed to be a part of something so spiritually significant! Lynley Adele was born to us (again through pregnancy) on May 20, 2013! I call her my Little Duckling, and she is just the most cuddly, happy little girl. We feel so tremendously blessed to have the privilege of parenting these three incredible little souls. These are the BEST days of our lives!
My little family lives in the southern Midwest but I've lived all over the place, including London for a semester! :) This has definitely shaped who I am. I passionately love England and all things Royal Family! I LOVE Disney World and enjoy planning trips to my favorite place. Our family loves serving at church (we're Southern Baptist in doctrine). We both serve in worship ministry and really enjoy it. Kurt teaches an adult LifeGroup (Sunday School) class and also various discipleship classes. I help with "Rally Room" (preschool worship time) in our preschool ministry and I coordinate all of our Women's Ministry events. I absolutely love it! God has blessed us with a wonderful church family and we are so honored to serve Him.
On this blog I share what we're up to as a family, and a "little bit of everything" that I find interesting! I'm so glad you're visiting - thank you for reading!
