Why Aspiring (because I hope the Ashley part is self-explanatory)? Well, I am aspiring to be and do so much in my life. There are the things I can explain: like I am aspiring to be a nurse, to make beautiful cakes, to be a good example, to try new things. Then there are the things that I yearn for in my spirit but can't really put into words for other people. The best I can do is to say that I want to follow Christ with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, wherever He might lead, without fear or hesitation. But see, that doesn't really take whats inside and express it very well. Oh well. So this blog is simply a place to write and grow and record what I'm learning and doing. Like I said in yesterdays post, I might record a day's events, or what I'm reading...I'm actually really excited for that part. I have a site where I review books (click here to see it) but one of my favorite things in this past year was when I lead a book study with my girls. There are some books I've been meaning to read, so look for some book discussions here soon. So, I guess that will be it for today. Thanks for stopping by and reading :)

Well, here I am blogging world! I'm going to attempt keeping a blog...we'll see how long this lasts. Since I really should be going to bed, not making a blog, I'll keep this post a little short and just tell you why I'm starting this endeavor. I have a secret...hope, for lack of a better word, to write. (Desire! Thats the word I was looking for!) Not like a series of novels or anything, but just to write. Even if its just for myself and a few people out in virtual-land. So this blog will be a mish-mash of writings....whatever I'm feeling at the time. Maybe about my day, or something on my mind, something I'm reading...whatever. Just to write. And that sort of gets into why this blog is called Aspiring Ashley, but I'll save that for tomorrow's entry! So thanks for stopping by, and check back later!
