Hello friends! This is my first blog post, woo hoo! Since you are ALL new to this page, I will give you a little insight about myself and why I created a blog.

Let's get started! My name is Ashley. I am a 22 year-old girl born and raised in the Phoenix area of Arizona. I have a boyfriend by the name of James whom I've been with five years. (That long already?) and two puppies! Okay they aren't so much puppies anymore. Jax is almost a year and six months and Otie is approaching six months. 

Now, the reason for starting a blog. Hmm.. where to start? Well the main reason I have created a blog is the inspiration I get when I am reading other blogger's posts. There is something so special about relating to someone you have never met by reading their stories and experiences online. Not to mention, I am so drawn to the creativity of having your own blog. The design, photography, even the font of the blog.  I love the idea of having a space to be visionary. I have never been much of a writer (I've actually never attempted writing for pleasure, anyway) But I do quite enjoy reading. Reading books, magazines, blogs, Facebook posts... you name it. So I just decided, why not? After planning and organizing my ideas for weeks, I finally posted! (Well, after re-writing this post 50+ times until my idea of perfect) I do have a quite a few other blog posts in mind, so I look forward to this! Thank you for reading. I will see you in the next blog post!
