It has been way too long since I’ve sat down for a cup of coffee with you guys! In case you’re new here, I sit down and have a coffee date with my friends over at Erin’s blog. I’m a bit late to the link up this month but normally we meet every second Monday of each month. We just talk about whatever is on our hearts as if we were really having coffee together. We’d love for you to come join us!


If we were having coffee, I would ask if you’ve heard the news that I’m pregnant! I haven’t joined in for coffee since announcing the news so I would have to catch up all up on that. It’s been a complete whirlwind since finding out in May, but we are so very excited for our little bundle of joy joining our family in January!

If we were having coffee, I would admit that it’s hard for me to talk about anything other than the baby at this point. Our world is going to change so much and it’s so hard not to at least try to picture how our lives our going to look once baby is here. I’d also admit that it’s hard not talking about it because we are finding out the gender of our sweet babe this Monday!

If we were having coffee, I would ask you what your favorite type of brewed coffee is for when you are drinking coffee at home. I’m always looking for new brands of coffee to try. I like to switch up what I drink so I don’t get too used to one type and then each cup really tastes great.

If we were having coffee, I would let you know that I feel a bit lost since finding out I’m pregnant. There just have been so many changes this year. I started the year out as a stay-at-home wife, we moved out of our first apartment, and then found out that I was pregnant. I’m going to actually do a whole post about this soon but I’m trying to find my groove again with whether or not I’m going to still be pursuing blogging full-time. I’m still trying to work out exactly what all of this means for my life.

If we were having coffee, I would explain that I am planning on working hard on my Etsy shop over the next few months. I have neglected it a lot lately. I plan on trying to stock it up as much as possible with new blankets, baby items, and home decor before baby comes. I also really want to collaborate with some bloggers within the coming months too so if that’s something you’d be interested in, please contact me!

If we were having coffee, I’d ask how your spiritual life is lately. I feel like it’s so easy not to bring this up with friends but so very important. I would share that I’m starting to feel closer to God lately. I feel a bit lost in my relationship with him because my husband and I switched churches, then ended up switching back to our old church after moving back into town. We’ve also been so busy this summer that we have been missing a lot of church. This always affects my relationship with God as well. I’m really hoping with the start of fall we can really fall back into a consistent routine of not missing church anymore. I think that will be great for both of our walks with Jesus.


Thanks for joining me for coffee! It was so great to have you. Before we go though, please tell me what else is new with you! I’d love to hear. 😋

Let’s Have Coffee | Vol. 12

  • Congratulations, Ashley! It’s been way too long since I stopped by your blog, so I’m sorry I missed the big news. How exciting! If we were having coffee, my advice would be to not put pressure on yourself to blog after having that sweet newborn, but to jump back in when you feel ready. Love that you are feeling closer to God, and glad you’re getting settled back into a church. We’ve had a hard time finding time to find community in our church just because we’re always adjusting to a new schedule with two kiddos. This week, we joined our church and found a group to be part of that works for our family, so I’m super excited about that! Thanks so much for sharing. ❤

    • Hi Laura! Thanks for stopping by and sharing what’s going on in your life! It’s so helpful to know I’m not the only one who has struggled with finding a church community. It helps me want to stick it out and keep trying to connect, despite how long it has and might still take. Also, thank you so much for the advice for after baby comes! I don’t know many moms so I really love hearing from moms who have been there before. I will definitely take your advice to heart. <3

    If we were having coffee,
    1. I would love to chat with you about your baby. He/she is the most important activity in your family, and is taking up a lot of time. Which is natural.
    2. I would tell you that I get tea from our local tea and coffee merchant who is three (or is it four?) blocks from our condo. I seem to prefer teas called “Monks Blend” (a black) and “Cinnamon Sibu” (a green). I very rarely drink coffee. That’s usually at Worship on Sunday morning. Strange.
    3. I would mention my dislocated right hip, and the fact that my doctor doesn’t give me enough medication to really control the pain. Surgery is scheduled for September 7th, but in the meantime, I don’t sleep well at night. That does not cheer my mood (though I really try to be kind to people around me).
    Blessings and Bear hugs, Ashley!

    • Praying that your pain is minimized and the surgery goes well!

  • That’s so exciting that you’re finding out the gender of the baby so soon! I can only imagine, but I think if I was pregnant I’d be talking about the baby all the time too! Hope you can keep gaining wisdom and direction as you prepare for his/her arrival. It’s so great that you’re feeling closer to God and I pray that you can get back to regular church attendance soon.

    I’m not a coffee drinker, but my husband likes the Robert Timms brand. It also comes in coffee bags (like tea bags) which is great cause we don’t have any coffee making equipment at home.

    I’d also be interested in some blog collaboration too, if you like 🙂

    • Hi Bella! Thanks for the coffee suggestion! I would love to collaborate with you! I will just need a bit more time to work some things out but I will definitely reach out to you in the future and we can totally work something out. So exciting. 🙂
