ashleegadd Trying something new this month - a day date! Brunch, and shopping for Easter basket goodies. Not the most romantic date, but we're alone so it still counts #yearofdates 2d

ashleegadd This morning I met with my new bookkeeper and I am not even embarrassed to tell you that I shed an actual tear during our meeting. Do you know that there are people in the world who LOVE spreadsheets? Do you know how much unnecessary stress has been lifted from my shoulders? I feel 10 pounds lighter! I feel so free! I feel so happy! Do you have something in your life that you hate doing, that you could outsource? Do it. I should have done this three years ago. Now I can spend all that time doing what I do best, which is creating art that does not involve spreadsheets. #likeaboss 5d

ashleegadd Once upon a time this kid was inseparable from me. Nowadays, he is head over heels for daddy. I'm a tiny bit jealous sometimes. 6d
  •   runningdoyle It totally flips and flops over here. 6d
  •   emtatum Mine is the same way! Now he says "daddy is my favorite but I still love you" 😕 6d
  •   jamieljohnson32 It's sad but it happens when a second child comes in the picture 6d
  •   hinnamh How old is your son? Is it bad if I confess that I want this to happen? I need a break! 6d
  •   imperfectbutloved Found your blog today via Camp Patton and I love love love it! So honest, and you're a fantastic writer. 6d
  •   ashleegadd @imperfectbutloved Oh my gosh! I was like, where in the world are all these new followers coming from? That @camp_patton is a sneaky one 5d
  •   laughing_latte I get the same thing! 5d
  •   ashleegadd @hinnamh he's almost 3, and no, that's not bad to confess. Been there! 5d

ashleegadd Today's the day I cash in my birthday gift: a whole day to myself. I've got the entire day planned - yoga, pedicure, eyebrow wax, shopping, writing, dinner with friends. I have to come home every 3 hours to feed the baby but hey! I'll take it. 12 hours to myself....to just....be. #seewhatididthere 1w

ashleegadd It's my 29th birthday today. 30 gets a lot of hype but today starts my last year as a 20-something, and I think it deserves a little hype too. I went from single to married to mother all in my twenties. From extrovert to introvert, from marketing girl to writer. With every year that passes I can feel pieces of myself shifting into place like a plant taking root in the ground. I feel more grounded, more confident, more secure in the woman God created me to be. So here's to you, 29. May the last year of my twenties be full of love and good stories. We're closing a chapter, but this still feels like only the beginning. 1w

ashleegadd Fresh flowers, a professionally cleaned house, and four hours of babysitting this morning. Happy birthday week to me. (You know you're a grownup when all you want for your birthday is for someone else to scrub your shower) 2w
  •   smileandwave No lie! Happy Birthday week!! 2w
  •   jessicarrodarte Happy birthday week! Good idea with the housecleaning! 2w

  •   laurenslemieux That's exactly what I asked for. Great minds 2w
  •   tamihackbarth Your birthday wish is spot on! Think of me Friday as I spend the day at Indian Springs in Calistoga with my life long GFs. A massage, a soak in a mineral tub, steam room, swimming and dinner out. Bonus: spending the night and not needing to be home until 430 on Saturday! So happiest birthday to you, birthday twin! 2w
  •   britt_p_anderson Ahhh. It looks like it feels so good!!!! Hope you have the greatest birthday- you deserve it! 2w

ashleegadd He's not one to buy lavish gifts or plan elaborate date nights, but every Friday morning, he picks up coffee for me on his way home from playing basketball, even though he doesn't drink coffee himself. He always put gas in my car, and picks up chipotle on the days when the kids don't nap. I don't say it nearly enough, and a little public praise never hurt anyone. Hey Brett....thanks for loving me well. You're really good at the little things, and it's more than enough for me. 2w

ashleegadd Finally caved and bought a double stroller. I imagine this is what it feels like to own a minivan. #wideload #somanycupholders 2w
  •   daniellemassari @ashleegadd my kids loved out double Bob. In fact, you could see the three of us strolling somewhere on the daily in East Sac. I often say that that stroller saved me! 2w
  •   ecbauso I was afraid you'd say that!! 2w
  •   katejbaer Double Bob. Minivan. Didn't want either, now I can't live without. 2w
  •   raemosher My car only has one cup holder; I may have to compensate with a double stroller. 2w
  •   mommy_risa We call it the bus. It's so awesome though!!! I have a double maclaren too that I use for places like the mall 2w
  •   michelledrewes I have been avoiding this purchase, but I might have to cave in as well 2w
  •   ashleegadd @michelledrewes You can only babywear for so long in Sacramento. I'm sweating 2w
  •   cotton_rainbow Can't wait to see an Eclipse over that car seat!! 1w
