Hey there! I'm Ashley.

The arts and crafts loving, home educating, everyday celebrating mama cheerleader behind The Littles & Me. I live outside of Charleston, SC with my husband, Philip and our three kiddos. I love finding beauty in the everyday and using my ordinary moments at home to love God and love people.

I believe that your unique family story is worth celebrating and that little moments repeated faithfully, bear much fruit.

So happy you're here!

Writing the Word, going on a daily walk, weekly brain dumps, and taking time to name the good (especially when it feels hard).

life-giving rhythms:

Whipping up something sweet in the kitchen, on a walk, or sipping a london fog tea latte (YUM!)  

YOU might FIND ME:

Monarch butterflies, Sabbath, playing card games, the quiet and stillness of morning

Little joys:

Jesus, family, the gift of fully present time, and finding little ways to bring beauty and joy into this weary world.


Like you, I'm a mama who knows all too well that the rhythms of these days are sometimes long, exhausting, and full of the mundane. It can be easy to lose sight of what really matters, but when I stop to truly notice and see the good things happening right before my eyes I find myself saying, "Wow, God! THANK YOU that I get to be a part of this." I don't always see the good. My weaknesses and shortcomings are abundant. My plans often get tossed out the window. But goodness these are the days. The days where God's grace is on full display. The days where I am learning the art of awe and wonder from three of the best little teachers. The days where slow, simple, and blank days on our calendar are becoming better than rush and hurry.

My oldest daughter said it best a few years back as we were captivated by worms diving into the rich soil, "The world is AMAZING!" Yes it is sweet girl. Yes, it is. Lord, give us eyes to see that Your world is amazing. Give us eyes to see the good gifts You give and to name them one by one. These days might feel small and ordinary, but they matter. God is using your small everyday moments to do something beautiful.

This corner of the internet is where I share thoughts, encouragement, and resources to intentionally slow down, find beauty in the ordinary, and celebrate the gift of today with my own littles. Join me?
