My name is Ashley! I live just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. I'm a Pre-K teacher and a faith-centered lifestyle blogger. I got my start with blogging five years ago when I was a fan site blogger. Through fan site blogging, I was able to interview the cast of Divergent in Chicago and the cast of The Giver in LA. I even met/interviewed Lois Lowry! A book lover's dream! Though my blogging topics have changed over the years, I use my current blog platform to share my walk with Jesus and I love to share my story with others!
I am so thankful for this "little" community! Planning has become a life passion of mine, as well as seasonal living.

I still consider that a newlywed. I was raised going to church, but have never felt like I had a place there. One of my goals for 2016 is to find my place with God. I have a very old student bible (NIV), I got it when I turned 13. I hope that's an okay one to use! Favorite things: Colors:purple, black, and red. Book(s): all of the Harry Potter series... other than that, I read a little bit of everything. Food(s):Salad and pasta. Hobbies:planning, design, knitting/crocheting, cooking/baking, and sleeping.
