The Best Thing I Ever Made


I have some exciting news that I want to share with you! It’s about the best thing I ever “made”!

Without further ado… Roby and I would like to introduce you to our son, Antony Thomas!

Okay, this picture is a tease. You can only see baby Tony’s striped gray hat sticking out of the ergo baby that dad is rocking.


Here’s a better picture of our new family.

We are so smitten with our handsome little man. It was truly love at first sight.

He’s so teeny tiny but this little guy has somehow managed to take up my whole heart.

Time is flying by. Too fast. Tony is already a month old! I meant to write this blog post and share our news with you much sooner, but man – being a new parent is exhausting.

Even in my constant sleep-deprived state, I can’t stop staring at this little human who made me a mommy.

    Hello Ashley, I too just found your blog and awesome recipes. Congratulations on becoming a Mom.
    I recently started eating/cooking Paleo and had signed up for several blogs, that is until I found yours. I told my husband, this is all I need. Lots of wonderful recipes. I intend to try them all.
