Celebrate with Santa but Keep Him Modest

Last night my husband and I had a talk about Santa Claus. Does Santa wrap the presents he brings or just leave them exposed under the tree? How many gifts does Santa bring? What kind of gifts does Santa bring? That last question led to an interesting conversation. What kind of gifts does Santa bring?  In the film Miracle on 34th Street Santa worked a miracle to give little Susan a family and a new house. In the film Ernest Saves Christmas Santa brought snow to Orlando, Florida. … [Read More...]

It’s Ok to Fight For Your Marriage

I do not understand the feeling that women are doing something wrong if they stand-up and fight for their marriage. I frequently receive e-mails from readers asking me for advice or just writing to get something off their chests and it almost always has to do with someone interfering with their … [Read More...]

Where would you go on your dream vacation?

Where is Your Heaven on Earth?

If I offered you a paid ticket to anywhere in the world where would you go? Why? That's today's prompt for #WODW by Mia and Shelly. I almost missed this one because the prompt was in video form and I'm notorious for not watching videos (sorry Shelly!) but Mia tweeted me the prompt and now here I am. So..where would I go? This was really hard. It's hard because I want to go everywhere. … [Read More...]

The difference between dreaming and doing - making dreams into reality. #ForeverAshley

Turn Dreaming into Doing

Before my husband and I moved to Atlanta I remember many nights we would sit around and dream about all of the things we wanted to do once we arrived in the city.  There were so many restaurants, museums, parks, and events to attend that it felt overwhelming at times but it was exactly what I wanted.
