I’m Ashley.

I never planned to be a blogger (or a military wife for that matter). The real story is that I have a computer science degree and I was an engineer for awhile. I bought a camera when I was high school and played around with a blog on blogger.com for a couple of years, but I never considered blogging and photographing as a full time job. Anything I succeed in is a direct reflection of the doors God has opened in my life. Without Him, none of this would be possible.

A little about me…I grew up in the hills of Tennessee, where I spent much of my childhood barefoot and building tents out of blankets. My love for the outdoors and travel grow with each adventure I take. In school, I was an art nerd with a love for math and a real problem in the spelling department (although not much has changed). I love a guy in a green camo uniform and baseball cap, though preferably not at the same time. We currently live in the Southern United States in a small bungalow with our two pups, Sybil and Cyd. I’m usually really shy and reserved when meeting someone new. I love to garden and photograph people in my free time.

And I hope you like reading carefully curated pictures of me, my husband and an excessive amount pictures of my dogs because there’s like, so many on here. Can’t say I didn’t warn you!



What camera do you use?

I use a Nikon D750 with an 85mm lens or a 24mm lens. If you are looking to buy a camera for everyday use, but aren’t going professional, I started out using the Nikon D7000.

Where do you shop for your capsule wardrobe items?

Mostly Madewell and Thrift. I often buy shoes from Nordstrom.
