I’m Ashley Danielle, a 26 year old mother and wife. I am originally from Miami, Fl and I am of Cuban decent. I lived in Miami for the majority of my life until I moved to Tampa, Fl for college. My then-boyfriend, now-husband was attending the same school. After years of living in Tampa, it is where we decided to finally plant ourselves permanently. I am bilingual and fluent. I have one major rule for my life and that is to always be honest and transparent no matter what. I got married at the young age of 20 to my childhood best friend. We have been together for 10 wonderful years.
We met each other very young. I was only 14 years old. The second I met him, I had a feeling it would be trouble. Ten plus years later, here we are. Married with a beautiful daughter, and a happy home filled with so much love. I know it is such a cliche thing to talk about as far as love at first sight is concerned, but in my case, I can attest to how real that concept really is. On January 5, 2015, we welcomed our daughter, Arianna Rose into the world.
Arianna Rose was such a healthy and itsy-bitsy baby. Weighing in at only six pounds flat. I got married young, and had a baby young. By the time I was 23 years old, I was welcoming an infant into my life. I thought I had an idea of what that would be like but in reality I had no idea. We learned so much about who we are as human beings and as parents through this experience. It teaches you to have so much patience and grace during the tough moments. It also shows you that you can love someone so much despite the chaos and it pushes you to want to give more of yourself and your heart. Now two years later, I can say that I still feel exactly the same. Despite the chaos, and the whirlwinds of marriage and motherhood, I can still say that I love my daughter more and more each day.
She’s two years old now. As time passes and we start to go through the different life stages, we see that we are constantly learning. We are constantly adjusting. We learned who we were as parents by bringing a beautiful baby into the world, but we know that we will always learn more as time goes on. I love my husband, my daughter, and my life. I will be sharing all these wonderful things on this blog. I will also be sharing all of the other miscellaneous things that interest me as well as our day to day life moments.
