Nutrition on-the-go!

Breakfast is something I don’t eat very often. Actually never during the week. I wake up and feed Leighton and then I make my coffee. I start my work day pretty early. I actually start it when I am feeding Leighton around 2 a.m. I respond to emails and reply to comments on social media during that time. I usually don’t put any food into my stomach until lunch! I know I should eat breakfast but I get so consumed…

New seasons are hard.

Well school starts on Tuesday for my little guy. He’s headed to 2nd grade and I am not headed back to the classroom. I wrote this post in March and announced I wasn’t going to go back to teaching after  7 years. This decision seemed like the right one for our family of 5. I had always wanted to stay home with my kids and be that mom that was able to attend every field trip and be present in the classroom but my…

How to start a mom blog

Step 1: Be a mom. Step 2: Pick a name for you blog. Just remember this name will be with you forever. Ha, just kidding,  it’ll be with you until you change it and re-brand ( If you ever choose to).  I knew when I first started out that I wanted to reach other moms with my stories and struggles. I wanted my family name to be incorporated in my blog name. My blog is about my lifestyle, my role…

The Ashmores Blog has some BIG news!

Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl. I used to play school in my bedroom. I had a chalkboard, overhead projector, worksheets, and animals as my students.   I was so excited when that dream became a reality in August of 2010! I landed my first teaching job at an amazing private school. There was only one problem. I had an 8 month old and would need to leave him in the care of someone else.…

My Rainbow baby Maternity shoot.

A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. I have experienced 2 miscarriages in my adulthood and neither one of them were something I ever thought I’d endure. Losing a child when you’re only a couple weeks or further is hard no matter what. My faith in the Lord was the only thing that got me through both. Ainsley is my first rainbow baby and now Leighton will be my second. God gives and…

Why I will never compromise sharing the name of Jesus…+ a bumpdate!

I know I am one of the few that speak the name of Jesus on my social media accounts. I follow a handful of ladies who proclaim to love the Lord. It’s a touchy subject to say the least. Some women feel it will hurt their social media following or that brands may not potentially work with them. While those two assumptions might true it does not in ANY way sway my decision to say the name of Jesus.  …
