I Publicly Profess...

Day 5 of the challenge is another one that has proven harder for me than expected. The challenge reads, "publicly profess your love for one of your blogger friends and what makes them great." The problem lies in the fact that in the year and a half I've been blogging, I've meet numerous ladies who I can say are near and dear to my heart. Not just because they deliver great content on a regular basis, but because they are good people with sincere, creative, and loving hearts. So the challenge for me was choosing just one of these ladies to publicly profess my love for.

But today, I'm going to gush about Ashley.
I discovered Ashley's blog about a month before I started my very own. I was drawn to her space because of the creativity and resourcefulness she uses to repurpose furniture and home decor and give it a distinct rustic feel. One day I simply left her a comment on her latest DIY reveal and to my surprise she responded; thus our blogship was born. I soon discovered there was much more to her than the amazing furniture transformations she creates. I love the quality of her writing, her unabashed faith, and of course her precious fur babies, Whiskey and Banjo. Pretty soon, Ashley's creative vision began to evolve and she started making beautiful rustic pillow covers, tables runners, and even purses! I reached out to her asking if she could make a ring bearer pillow for mine and Steven's wedding, and the finished product turned out more amazingly perfect than I could have ever imagined! This girl has got some serious talent and combine that with her sweet personality (and lots of photos of her dogs), I think Ashley is worthy of any blogger's adoration. BONOUS: She recently bought a home and she has her first baby on the way! ...It's almost too much excitement for me to take in, but I am definitely looking forward to all that is to come on her sphere of the web!

Welp, there you have it. My public profession of my obsession with another blogger...this isn't creepy or anything...but, just in case, I'm off to go inform Ashley of this post before she feels the need to put out a restraining order.

Happy Sunday, friends.

I am loving this challenge, and reading about people's favorite bloggers. And it's not weird - that's what this blogging thing is all about, right? Connecting with others! At least that's what I tell myself to make it less creepy haha

This is such a sweet post! I actually found Ashley's ADORABLE blog through you and while I have yet to order anything from her (Hi, Budgeting, I don't like you), I constantly swoon over her pretty creations!!

OH MY GOSH! Danielle! I just came across this post (under a rock the last few days) and I'm SO flattered and grateful for your kind words! Seriously, you are too kind. I talk about you, Huck, and all your family adventures to my family and friends all the time... they're all wanting to know when they can meet you! haha. Again, thanks again for your sweet post...it means a lot! Looking forward to seeing more from you, especially during this "blog all month" challenge, you really are an amazing writer! Take care!
