Ready to get crystal clear on what a life-giving home looks like for your family?

Hi, I’m Ashley!

The arts and crafts lover, blocks builder,
everyday celebrator,
and mama encourager
behind The Littles & Me.

I help mamas create
joyful homes that
celebrate and play.

The Littles & Me was an idea that was sparked on our own playroom floor to breathe new life and joy into the ups and downs of motherhood. Let’s be honest. Motherhood is no walk in the park. It’s HARD. A hard that is overwhelmingly rewarding and unbelievably stretching all at the same time. Maybe you can relate?

Out of my own deep need for meaningful interaction with my girls and a desire to stay engaged in our normal days of diaper changing, meal making and tantrum taming The Littles and Me was born. 

I am passionate about encouraging mamas because I am a mama.

I understand the deep desire to connect with your kids but not having enough mental space to come up with ideas. I know the feeling of wanting to cultivate special family time but not knowing where to begin. I experience the desperate longing to see your kids walk and truly know Jesus but feeling completely inadequate to do so (praise Jesus that in our weaknesses He is made strong).  I also totally relate to needing a little mid day pep talk to make it through the day as a more present and engaged mama. 

Here you’ll find engaging kids activities, simple ideas for family time, everyday ways to point your kids to Jesus, and encouragement for your mama heart. I’m a firm believer in living room dance parties, playing dress up, not taking yourself too seriously, and that life is truly worth celebrating.

I’m so glad you are here and I genuinely hope you find this little space helpful and encouraging, whether it’s through a blog post, our monthly Freshly Squeezed Joy Newsletter or a celebrate and play family activity list. What you are doing as a mama is world changing work and I am so honored to be in the trenches alongside you. I’m raising my coffee (if it wasn’t iced it would have been reheated at least three times by now) to all you amazing mamas.

Thanks again for stopping by!

For His fame,

Ashley Signature

Here's the thing... your home matters.

Imagine what it would feel like if your home was a place of connection, celebration, and belonging — a haven in a weary and noisy world. Your family rhythms, anchors, and traditions can be intentional and life-giving, but it’s not going to happen by accident.
