Fashion Friday

 Summer is coming to an end and I'm kind of happy. I never really realized that I'm the type of person that needs some kind of routine. Too much vacation is a little boring. I start to get antsy to do something more with my time. 
I'm excited for what's coming up in the fall! Instead of only recording two songs it has turned into an EP. I will be headed to LA in September to record the rest of the songs and then everything will be released in the fall. I'm so excited for it to finally come out! I couldn't be more happier! 
Keep following along for release dates and follow me at @ashleyreedmusic

Fashion Friday {Hipster and Podcasts}

So I'm kinda obsessed with podcasts lately. I have learned that podcasts are my jam while doing long trips. I can't even listen music for every long because I still get tired. Which is a big no-no while driving! It makes me daydream about having my own podcast. What would I talk about? What kind of guests could I have on? Would anyone even listen? I just think they are so fun and you can talk about whatever you want. I am a talker! Do you have some favorite podcasts? If you could start a podcast what would you talk about?

Fashion Friday

There comes a time in a bloggers life where the time comes where you don't feel like writing anything. You don't feel like saying anything. You just want to live in the silence for a minute to decompress. I feel like that time has come for me. So with that said. Here's some pictures to look at while I gather my thoughts.....

Fashion Friday {Aphrodite}

Sometimes you just need to kick off your shoes and run around in the grass barefoot. With an impending thunderstorm behind you. It's the simple things that bring you joy! Makes me think how fun summer was growing up. Playing with all my cousins at my grandparents house by the lake. We definitely got into some shenanigans. Things I couldn't think of my kids doing now. Like playing in the gutter barefoot for example.
What types of things did you do as a kid during the summer?

Fashion Friday A hipster summer

 I'm getting kind of used to these summer thunderstorms. It's a nice break from this unbearable Georgia heat! You think I could deal having grown up in the California desert. But the south is an entirely different world. 
Sometimes in the summer I get into this rut. You know that feeling of needing a vacation from your vacation. Well it's kind of like that except I want something to do. I want to be busy again. Maybe its the cabin fever talking, the lack of social interaction {except for with children}. I've resulted in fake and sometimes fake drama on tv just to keep me company. It's really hard thinking of running off somewhere with the kids with the hubby. Any mom can relate that vacation with your kids is more work then staying at home. I have to physically, mentally and emotionally prepare myself for certain outings. 
Let's take the movies for instance. My three year old does NOT do the movies very well. 
He can't sit still. The only way to keep him contained is if I keep feeding him snacks. Mental noted sugar free snacks or feed him food and playtime before movies. Maybe that will tire him out beforehand. 
Doing arts and crafts
He has the attention span of well a three year old. Or like the dog from Up.. you know saying squirrel in the middle of everything. Yeah! That's my kid for sure. So I end up setting up and cleaning up in under 20 minutes most of the time. 
Any kind of water park/theme park/carnival is out unless I rope someone into helping me. Having an age gap between kids is rough in these cases because the older one wants to ride things the younger one can't.
What's left you ask? 
The pool. 
Yep that's the only thing they both like to do that also allows me a mental break. 
So unless you all have some other suggestions for me. 
I guess we will be at the pool for the next 6 weeks!
See you there!

Fashion Friday {Bring on the rain}

So I've almost completely broken up with Facebook. My private account that is. I've been having a lot of soul searching on social media. Also hearing a lot of peoples opinions on how no one can relate to each other anymore. No one knows how to talk to anyone anymore because they are constantly texting, messaging etc. I also don't like and I never liked how people will check my facebook before picking up a phone to call me or to visit me. So I am doing my part. I'm boycotting! I'm taking a stand. Social media will have its purpose for me. But if you want to know me for real you have to pick up a phone. You got to pay a visit! I hope this idea spreads but we live in strange times and I fear it's going to get worse. 
What is your opinion on social media and human life?

Fashion Friday {Meadows and Reeds}

It's June ! You guys! It's June already we are almost halfway done with 2018 already. Why is it when we get older time just flies by faster and faster? Time and age is a funny thing. I recently just did this bible study on the first 11 chapters of Genesis! It totally blew my mind. I grew up in church and there were things in there I didn't even know! I probably never paid attention or no one ever taught on it. It was a week by week study by Jen Wilkin called God of Creation. You can jump on this study in a couple weeks and I highly recommend it. Follow this link God of Creation Study 
I learned that people used to live for over thousands of years. Can you believe that? We get all excited for people living to be 100 years old. I also learned how long it actually took Noah to build the ark. The purpose of time and age meant something. That got me really fired up. That God has this purpose for those kinds of things. It's all meticulously planned it and we have no idea. All we can see is what's right in front of us. Or where we are going for summer vacation. God knows that already! Each week I was like {MIND BLOWN}. 
I hope you are having a great week. Here's to a great weekend!
