Hello Lovely! I’m Ashley Erwin a follower of Christ, a wife, a constant hostess at home, and a new mama. Throw in a passion for cooking, a love of fashion, a terrible case of wanderlust, a love of all things that are lovely, and you have Magnolias and Mocktails!
While I grew up in a tiny town in Arkansas, we have recently relocated from Houston, TX to the Mobile Bay area. It is a stark contrast from Houston but we’re making the Deep South our home and I love exploring the area (and sharing all the hidden gems I find with you of course). As long as I’m in the South (and have my hubby next to me) I know I’m at home.
This is my precious hubby, James:
Since my husband went back in school and I used to be constantly traveling for events, I created this site to share my constantly changing wonderful life. Now that we’re slightly more settled and adjusting to a family of three, it’s at home that I’m always looking for an excuse to have all our friends and family over for a party. Mama needs some adult interaction, am I right?! Lately I’ve been thinking of the following reasons to throw a party; Southern Start to Summer Party, Edible Cookie Dough Bash, or my newest thought… I found time to put my make-up on party… I’m kidding but maybe only partially kidding, couldn’t that earn me a party?
I love my crazy beautiful life and chronicling it here. Thank you for letting me share it with you!
