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!
