Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.

Sweetest Day

My dear friend Steph, reminded me that today is Sweetest Day. I'll have to admit that while the day has beautiful origins I'm one of those people that believe it's just a ploy to get us to spend more money on cards, flowers and candy. Valentine's Day I'm down for... this one not so much. Regardless, my darling husband has to work all day so it's just me and my miniature sweetheart.

Maybe we'll celebrate after all- a mama and babe date day? And just what would a date with a 10 month old baby boy consist of? A long nap, some special soy yogurt, a stroll to the park for a ride on the swings and maybe, just maybe a trip to the book store, all topped off with another painting session... I think I can handle that.

    I am like you -- we are pretty low key around here during these Hallmark Holidays. top
