Welcome Back!

Where do I even start!? First off, THANK YOU so much for coming back as I update you on my crazy life and insight into fashion + beauty. I know I haven't been on here for a while so instead of just throwing everything out at once I thought I would spend this first month {which happens to be the month of Mothers Day and my birthday ;)!} slowing posting things from pregnancy, the birth of Brodie, different adventures + mile stones, along with fashion and other things that I have gone through and overcome. I'm warning you all... there is A LOT! lol
I keep getting the question as to why I've been away and to be completely honest there isn't just one big reason but instead, just a lot of little things that keep happening. Life is good and {most importantly} Brodie is healthy. I've been going through a lot of personal things in life while learning to be a good mom, which has been harder than I expected. I'm the type of person that looks at things in a certain way and just expects them to go THAT way... which I learned thats not usually the case. I've had to change my outlook and accept the things I can't change. Luckily, after what I went through being pregnant, then having such a hard delivery and even a hard time after he came into this world... It has made me realize life is not perfect but being strong and loved can build happiness. This is me being real and honest and I hope you all can understand. What I'm about to start sharing might not look glamorous and high end like other bloggers but rather just plain and simple and what I truly went through. I hope you all continue to follow me on my journey once again! :)

Before I get into details here is a brief update on my life:

* My biggest "job" is being a full time mom {which is the best thing I could ever have} along with that I still work for Nordstrom but only 1 or 2 days a week.
* I'm also going to be coaching our JV cheer team at Westview High School. I was a cheerleader at WHS {back in the day} and also coached our "Ice" youth team last year! I can't wait to start back up again with tryouts this week {Go Cats!} :)
* Living full-time in Portland, Oregon but looking forward to my many travels coming up this summer.
* My little boy {Brodie Beckham Bell} is already 7 months and healthy as can be {despite everything he/we went through during the pregnancy and delivery!}
* Fashion is still a big part of my life but Brodie is nottttt like his mama who loves stylish outfits... he would rather be naked 24/7... he also cries anytime I try to put something on him {insert sad tear face}

Here are Brodie's monthly pictures that I have shared on my instagram {ashley2bell}:

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week!
We love you all and thanks again for stopping by :)
