Hi, I'm Ashley! I've been writing for as long as I can remember. As a shy, quiet and introverted kid, I found journaling as a means of freedom and expression. This blog has been a passion project of mine for a while, and I'm excited to finally share my personal journey and experiences. 

The name 'Be Still + Bloom' is a combination of my two favorite quotes. "Be still and know that I am God," from Psalm 46:10 reminds me to be patient and trust the process. "Bloom where you are planted," encourages me to make the most of every moment or opportunity that comes my way.
