Welcome to my version of events.
I’m Ashleigh, a twenty-something girl behind the writing. If you don’t fancy delving into the ins and outs then I’ll keep it simple in the following sentence: I live with my husband Jason, we don’t own any pets, I drink lattes and he’s a mocha kinda guy, some days I look like crap and others I feel pretty, we’re a hard working couple during the week but usually found laughing at the weekends. In October 2018, we found out we were expecting our first child and you could see our beaming grins for miles. Fast forward 6 months and we experienced the worst pain that could greet any parent and sadly, our beautiful baby girl Maddison Grace Hunt left us at just 25 weeks. We’ve embarked the long and rocky road ahead leaning to live again after loss. Feel free to read on for the full edit 😉
Day to day I work for the NHS as a therapeutic radiographer after 6 long years of full time work & study, by night my imagination runs wild planning and booking travel escapes with Jason. It’s easy to say that life gets messy and painful, but it is also the most amazing gift and that my friends, is the reason for this blog. Admittedly, I started writing many moons ago, except now I write for various different reasons; with a purpose of keeping our little girls memory alive, whether it’s to show her the beautiful sunsets around the world that we’ll celebrate in her name or the lows we can’t avoid but use to support another who may be going through the same thing (For more information about our story, check out Maddisons Movement).
So here we go folks – my very own corner that’s all about me (In my eyes, we should all have one). On a serious note, there might be at least one person that could benefit from my past achievements, fun, mistakes and in fact ~ loss. Expect to see the every day’s of my life, heavy on the feelings, current media, travel ambitions and basically anything that catches my eye in order to spread a little happiness around.
Lastly, I want to thank each and every one who stops by this little space on the internet, it is highly appreciated and please please share your stories with me!
