The Fam


Hello hello!

Welcome to Musings & Oats!

I’m Ashley and I created this blog as a way to document all the things that make me smile. And there are a lot of things that make me smile right now.

So, a little bit about me, right?

Well…I am a 24 year old, wife, daughter, friend  and mom (to a pup named Michi). I bring home the bacon by working at a cafe in a fancy gym. Nothing glamorous, but so very thankful for it.

My wonderful hubs, Nathan, and I, are living in Memphis, TN. I was a train wreck when we first moved here from my home in Nashville, about two years ago. Seriously, ask Nathan. I cried probably every other day and ate a lot of chocolate to make me feel better. Thankfully, now I am able to call Memphis home and I love my little family God has given me.

And that’s another thing about me. I love Jesus so so much, and have grown closer to Him over the past 2 years than any other time in my life. He is continually showing me His peace and grace, and I have loved going through this life with Him.

I am finding that life is a beautiful, and sometimes super hard, adventure and I want to remember each and every piece of it.

Enter Musings & Oats.

The name came about simply due to my love for mornings where I get to read, and think, and all that good stuff, coupled with my love for oats which I eat every morning. Or should I say addiction. Yeah, addiction would probably be more appropriate.

I hope to now use these mornings to keep track of the things that slap a big ole’ smile on my face, that I am passionate about and the lessons that help me grow along the way.

So here we go! Get excited :)
