{Think Outside the Blog} Southern Lovely

Hello! This is Ashley's friend Rachel, from Family Ever After. We all love and adore Ashley. While she is taking some time off, I've organized a series involving some of her favorite bloggers. Over the next couple weeks, you can check in with some of the internet's most adored bloggers, and find out what makes them think outside the blog. We love you Ashley, and look forward to your return!

Today's guest is Lindsay from Southern Lovely!!!

It's hard to know the words to pass along to Ashley at this time in her life. I adore her though and pray that through this very difficult period, she can be lifted up by all of us in the blogging community.

With that being said, I am so grateful that Ashley has a sweet friend like Rachel to think of this unique way to help out right now. And I am very happy to be a part of it.

My name is Lindsay, and I run the blog, Southern Lovely.

I love the idea of this, to 'think outside the blog'.
Blogging and creating take up most of my free time, but I do have a life outside of it, really. :)

My family is my number one priority in life.

I married my husband after knowing him for one year, then we welcomed our first child, a girl 3 years later, to the day. Then another 2 years passed, and we had our second daughter, and then 3 years passed and we had our baby boy. And that is our family.

We live pretty far away from the rest of our family, so we have had to rely on each other to make memories and enjoy life.

It seems like most of my favorite activities with our children, are held in our home.

From baking something sweet

Having a family camp out

Or playing games

It seems those are some of the best memories.
Lots of giggling is usually to be heard during those times.

As a mother, it is those small moments that make life so sweet.

I love when things don't go as planned, because that is what real life is all about.
Not to care about the little things that get in the way, but to be content and find joy in those sometimes chaotic moments around you.

So there you have it, my life outside of the blog, is my family.

They come first, and always will.

Thanks so much for letting me be apart of this, I hope we all can continue to send love to Ashley at this time.
