Update: You may notice a few changes! Still a work in progress but it’s getting there! I included a new button option so go ahead and grab it if you’d like!
I’m pretty sure this is already a well known blog but I literally stumbled upon this blog yesterday as I was reading another one of my favorite blogs, Lil’ Boo Blue and was immediately sucked into Ashley’s world, Under the Sycamore.
A ‘retired’ professional photographer, stepping down in 2008, Ashley still snaps photos on a daily basis of her life with her husband and FIVE children. What caught me first with Under the Sycamore was her overall layout of the blog. When you click on one of the three links under her banner, Favorites, DIY or Photo Tips, you wont find many words but rather photos, many photos and when scrolled over you will get the few beginning sentences of that particular blog post. I love it. I think it is one of the more unique and interesting blog layouts I’ve seen.
When you delve deeper into Under the Sycamore you begin to see the heart and love behind the compilation of Ashley’s life experiences. From crafting, DIYing, and photography to parenting, being a wife, a parent, and adopting. It’s heart, it’s soul, it’s life, it’s real. I think that is way it sucked me in. I also have a thing for really awesome blog and website layouts.
Here are a few of my favorite post written by Ashley at Under the Sycamore thus far. I still have a lot of browsing to do but love what I’m seeing so far!
But seriously, if you haven’t checked Under the Sycamore out yet you should. If you love blog writers that ‘get real’ then head over and say hi to Ashley.
