My name is Ashlee. I am a pastor’s wife and a mama to 4 little ones. I am southern at my core and the granddaughter of a farmer. I have a heart for southern drawls, front porches and sweet tea.
After studying design at James Madison University I began doing freelance graphic design and for the past 10 years I have been creating brands for creative business owners. I have created dozens of gorgeous brands for amazing clients! In 2017 it was time for a change and I transitioned away from client work in order to build The Morning: a community I founded for women who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Moving away from branding work has allowed me to spend more time providing resources here; resources for the small business owner, the working mama and the woman who is looking for inspiration and beauty in her everyday life.
When I’m not writing here or for The Morning, I’m playing with my littles, cooking up a yummy dinner, or planning our next travel adventure with my cute husband. I love the mornings and wake up before dawn on most days. I hate a mess and drink my coffee black.
lots of love,
MEET MY FAMILY
I married an amazing man who won my heart in a matter of days. We went on just a handful of dates before he told me I was the one he was going to marry. He’s a church planter and pastor who loves Jesus and leads so well. We have 4 gorgeous littles, 3 are here with us, Andrew (2007), Asher (2010) and Adelee (said like Natalie, 2012) and one in heaven. AadenSage Proffitt was born on October 8, 2008 and went to be with Jesus only 5.5 weeks later. He is forever loved by his family and his life is still impacting others today through The Morning.
