Well hello there I’m Ashley and welcome to Our Anchored Life. Thank you so much for stopping by! I have been blogging for a couple years now but recently decided to get more serious with it. This is my family Matt and Lily. Matt and I have been married for 12 years. We love to laugh and have fun! Matt and I starting dating when we were teenagers and married young. We were babies at 20 and 22! We have basically grown up together and it has been an amazing adventure.


Our lives changed overnight when we adopted our precious little girl Lily Rose. You can read more about that crazy awesome night here Overnight Parents She has changed our life in the most amazing ways. She is a living example that God has a good and perfect plan for all of us. See the full story here of Our Journey to Parenthood.



My hope for this blog is that you feel encouraged and inspired by the things I share whether it’s a fashion find, design project, yummy recipe or a personal struggle or victory.

I strive to be transparent even when it feels uncomfortable. I kept our struggle to have kids private for so long and once I started to share what was going on amazing things started to happen. I believe everyone has a story to share that can encourage and help others. I hope you feel encouraged by ours. Thanks so much for stopping by!
