Live it Right

Live for today
Dream for tomorrow
Say Thank You
Don't forget to smile
Act silly
Travel around
Live out your dream
Take photographs
Sing out loud
Do something crazy
Journal about it later 
Tell someone you love them
Because there's only one life to live, might as well live it right

A Thank You

I don't always know what to say.
So sometimes I just don't say anything at all.
But I do appreciate everyone in my life, and everything that you have/had/and will ever do for me.
With that being said, I'd just like to say a Thank You.
From the bottom of my heart,
-Ashley

Land of Oz


1. A quote I found on instagram. I think everyone can live by this.
2. My nightly cup of "The Healthiest Tea in the World"
3. A fun shot from mine and Alex's "mini photo-shoot" the other day.

I'm in desperate need of watching The Wizard of Oz. It's my all time favorite movie! I've probably seen it about three hundred times or so, and have not gotten tired of it at all! I'd live in Oz to be quiet honest.

As you guys know, I'm pretty much a music addict, I'm always on the look for new bands or songs to listen to, and I'm pretty open to all genres. Here are some new ones that I've found recently! (new as in I just found out about them)

The new Maroon 5 Album is great! Also an older song by them "Stutter"
Everybody Talks - Neon Trees
Primadonna - Marina and the Diamonds

Y'all should all check these out if your into fun upbeat music!(:

Property of Texas


1. The CUTEST outfit, especially that shirt I want one!
2. Cute little country kitchen
3. thats just adorable!
4. I think this would be great for an outdoor setting (wedding, party etc)

I've been using Pinterest lately, and have just come across some of the neatest things! I mainly like it for the outfits people put together and then the decor (like above)
It definitely makes you want to get up and start doing something. Crafty, cooking, painting whatever it may be. Though I usually just sit and keep looking at all the pretty pictures haha

Oh Nights.

Oh nights.. Nights are when I tend to do most of my thinking, blog changing, and decision making. Well tonight is like any ordinary night, insomnia. So what do I do? I go on pinterest and twitter and the many blogs I enjoy keeping up with and throw my hours away.
Hopefully you've noticed this, but I changed my blog name to Dixie Paige! I think it suits quiet well.
Dixie, being the southern girl I am inside who's favorite band as a young child were the Dixie Chicks. While searching pinterest for quotes in picture form that I could share with you, I came across these..

Bits + Pieces: Mexican Food


1. Headless sibling shot... they wear vibrant colored clothes.
2-4: Me and Alex took a drive down the street so I could walk around and take some photos.
5: Went into Rio's Mexican Restaurant and ate! I only had chips and queso but that's really all I need!  (Photo 7 was taken by Alex)

I finally got out of the house today after being stuck inside since Wednesday. I've been wanting to take some pictures of the city and finally got the chance to!
My brother was very nice and drove me around so I could do what I did today!
What did y'all do today?

Just My Luck


 We're finally getting settled into our new home... We still have lots and lots of boxes to go through and get rid of things that we no longer use, but other than that were pretty much settled in!
It's cloudy today, which most photographers should know calls for pictures! I went outside today and took some pictures of the flowers and scenery that is outside and am loving the colors and the turn out of them.
Later today me and my brother, Alex are going around driving so I can take some pictures of the city which I've been really wanting to do.
I'll probably make a blog post real soon of my current favorite songs and bands, since I'm loving some new ones recently!

Exploring the City


Now-adays, things are pretty boring. Half the time I can't even remember what day it is.
I think I'm going to be starting dance pretty soon at the dance studio down the street, which I'm super excited about! I haven't done any dancing since last semester ended. I for sure am taking an advanced Hip Hop class, and maybe ballet again.... Haven't quiet decided...

I'm also excited about exploring the city and taking new photography! Once I do, y'all will be the first ones to see it!(:

Big Cities and More Youtube.

As everyone should know by my last post, I did indeed move.. I didn't tell too many people because I'm lazy and don't always enjoy explaining things haha so all week I've been getting "What You Moved??" texts. YES!
I'm loving it here, I haven't really ever lived in a big city before so its a great experience! Plus, if I ever move somewhere else thats a big city, I'm already used to it.
Today me, my siblings, and grandparents went to Downtown Boulder today and walked around the outdoor mall. It was SO HOT and we didn't seem to find too many clothing stores, but it was pretty fun! It cooled down quiet a bit this evening when me and my mom went out to the grocery store to grab a couple things, which is really nice as well!

I'm pretty obsessed with making vlogs on my Youtube channel. Which I'll link HERE if you would like to check out what me and my family are up to these days!(:
Plus instagram pictures. Yes, I'm one of those hipster photographers who instagrams everything their doing. But its fun! You can follow me at @ashleywilliamz

Update!

This past week me and my family have made a move to Denver. The reason being to live closer to my dad's work.
So far it's great! I love how we live so close to everything and theres a ton more stuff to do!
Today we went to Cherry Creek Mall, and my goodness.... was it exhausting! It's so big and there are so many stores it seemed like it never ended!
From going to a mall with mostly out-of-buisness stores to having every store you could think of in one place it was definitely a change!
Either way its a experience with new things to look forward to!

Back in the Day!


I was looking through some old pictures my mom has of us in these two big tubs full of pictures, and I came across these two, scanned them in, and thought I'd share them! They're of me and my older brother Alex, when we were little. (in the first one we look like twins, we got asked that all through our lives if we were!)
Old pictures are fun(:

National Chick-Fil-A Day

 Hey y'all!
Today as most of you probably know was "National Chick-Fil-A Day" or something like that.. Long story short, the line just to get onto the street that our Chick-fil-a is on was so long we didn't even try to get in that mess! Sad, we were all really craving it today too!
This week has been like rainy season here, which is great, I love cold, rainy days. Sometimes the loud thunder is a little much though..

1) From Abby's recording the other day... took some neat pictures!
2) Cut the sleeve's off my brother Alex's overstretched Elvis T-Shirt. Super cute now!

Rockin' it Out!
