First, tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Ashley Marie Wilson. I am a lover of Jesus, a wife, and an artist. My spirit dances around when I’m able to create, capture an image, or encourage.
How long have you been blogging?
Honestly…I started writing posts in April 2011 but didn’t tell anyone but my closest friends until the end of July. 4 months later…so officially about 2 or 3 months.
What inspired you to create your blog? I’ve always kept a journal and I always like to save articles, notes, teachings, or pictures I found inspiring. For years I wanted to have a place to not only save it but share it. Back in April God placed the idea of starting a blog in my heart. I was hesitant but realized it would be an amazing outlet creatively and spiritually, so La Luce the blog began.
What things do you like sharing on your blog most? Do you have a favorite post? I really love to share things that expanded my thoughts or perspective on something. You know how you can hear something over and over but there is that one time that you hear it and get a different understanding of the concept? I usually share those through the eye candy: soul candy posts. Something beautiful for our eyes, and something beautiful for our souls. I also love to share the GiveLove Spark challenges. Those might be my favorite posts because I pray they really spark a movement. If you haven’t head about GiveLove yet, you can read about that here.
What do you like to do most when you’re not blogging? Spend time with my husband, go on random adventures in the city, find a new cool place. I really love doing anything creative. Painting, photography, image editing, and writing are my favorite ways to chill and get what swirls around inside of me out.
If you could live in any other decade, which would it be and why? I’m totally torn. I love the 40’s because of the style. The style lines were all so unique, but still so feminine. You could tell style was on the verge of being bolder for women and women started taking more risks when it came to fashion. But I love the free spirit aura that the 60’s had. How ‘go with the flow” and “airy” that time was. The art from the 60’s always intrigues me a lot too.
Current favorite blog reads? Oh wow. That’s super hard. I’ll do a top 3 (in addition to yours, because that’s an obvious) I have been most personally impacted by or creatively inspired by are: The Wiegands, Splendor, & A Beautiful Mess. There are so many other amazing blogs and women pouring themselves into those blogs that have truly blessed me and I have such a love for them too. Love you ladies!
make sure you stop by and visit this lovely lady - she is simply amazing!!
