Hi!  My name is Ashley!

 I am the blogger over at Little (Mrs) Sunshine. 

 I am a wife, and a mama to three littles. 

In 2007 I gave birth to our first daughter.  Promptly after her birth I lost my mind.  Or, rather, anxiety and depression took it.  While friends were having babies, and relishing in their roles as new mothers, I was sinking, barely able to catch a breath.

I started Little (mrs) Sunshine as a way to document our life.  What I didn't realize, is that it would soon turn into a therapuetic outlet for me and this horrible illness called anxiety. 

While I blog openly about my struggles with anxiety and depression; the ups and downs of medication, therapists, and raising kids while trying to manage the illness, I also like to include humor and photographs; both of which take up a good amount of our time.

 Anxiety and depression has taken me on the darkest of journeys.  And for the longest time, I had no clue why I had been chosen for this trip.  But I know now, I had to hit the bottom to get where I am today.

 I continue to struggle with anxiety.  I am still on medications.  I am managing this illness I've been given.  But I'm here.  I'm living and thriving, and loving life!
