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.

His Holiness

Still feeling like a soiled diaper, bored and scouring the internet for something to make me smile...I stumbled upon this. Ah, I'm bursting with excitement! The opportunity to hear him speak... and to take Xavier along with me! I studied Buddhism for a while and now have my feet firmly planted in Christianity, but still hold an enormous respect for the life and philosophies... and that man just has a way of bringing a light to my eyes. Makes me smile every time!
