About Me


Hello! I am a young, happily married, mommy of one, I firmly believe in real-life fairy tales. I love long walks, ice cream cones, and spending time with my little family. I have always loved words and I enjoy blogging my unique views on life, love, and marriage, and the joys of motherhood.

I married the most amazing man, Ashton Craig, at age 19. We are completely in love. He is the sweetest, most understanding person and always has my back. He has the best sense of humor and has literally made me laugh every day since the day we met. He is so personable and always makes people feel comfortable when they are around him. He is a great example to me and always pushes me to be my very best! Read our story here.

I have the most loving, compassionate, cute, and funny baby girl. She has made my life more happy than I ever knew was possible. She may only be two feet tall and can only speak a handful of words, but she is my best friend!

I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You may be more familiar with the term Mormons. We are a Christian church. I owe all I am to God, and hope I can always represent him well. To find out more about my religion click here.

My life isn't perfect, but it has been good. I hope through my blog I can share my life with you, along with things I have learned as a wife, mom, and person that have helped me and that can hopefully help you too!

Come join me in this roller coaster we call life!

  1. I'm new to your blog and I must admit it was extremely frustrating trying to know what your blog is about or learn about you. You should put more information in your about me ... well enough information that lets your readers know who you are, your life, or at least what your blog is about. Enough information for your reader to decide what your blog is about. I know you're a young bride.. I don't know how young, or why. I know you're a mom, I don't know anything about your baby, or how old he is. I know you're married, I don't know anything about your husband. Not saying to put all your information out there, but to give the readers an idea of who you are. I myself am a young bride and a mother and christian, but I don't know if I can relate to you.

    1. I am so sorry that it was hard to find out more about me. I am working on making my about me page better. I still have a lot of work to do, but I have updated it since you last saw it! Hopefully it is a little less frustrating... its not quite where I want it yet, but should be in the near future. Thank you for taking time to explore my blog! I hope you come back in the future :)

    2. (: Your update helped greatly! And I'm sure it'll help you! Not many people have patience to read your every post to know who you are. Now lots of people can get a small idea of what you're about and from there, read your posts. But you truly inspired me to start a blog myself! I used to blog often and play with layouts. But I stopped once I got married and became pregnant with twins. They were born in October too! So our babies are the same age!

    3. Dude. You are being nasty to her! If you don't have enough time to read a few posts then you don't have time to be reading a blog.
      I love the way her 'about me' page is set up! And it's so much more information than most blogs. And I would really be scared to put more info about myself on the Web.
      Fyi. The best part about finding a new blog is reading the old posts and roaming the blog.
      Go troll and be hateful somewhere else!

  3. I have to admit that I am curious about more info also. I understand you are or were a teenage bride, I don't know if you still are a teenager. I am assuming it wasn't a 16 and pregnant experience BC you're blog posts talk about being Jesus Christ of latter day saints. I love your posts though and have cried reading a couple. You are a great writer. I just wish your about me section told a little more.

    1. I wrote more about my teenage bride experience in my blog post titled "What I Gave Up The Day I Got Married" you can check it out if you would like! I am 21 now, but was 19 when I got married. Thank you so much for reading and loving my posts! I am working on making my about page better, I have updated it a bit, and will continue to in the future. I really appreciate your comment and suggestions!

  4. Me too actually. *laugh* the "teenage bride" tag piqued my interest and I came over, and the "about me" doesn't say a lot. I want links to your love story, how you met your guy, why young marriage was good for you, how long it took you to conceive, what being a mom is like for you... etc :)

  5. Wow. I think these folks are being awfully nosy. I think you also need to protect your privacy. Just keep writing!

  6. Natasha, you are doing a great work! The link to learn more about your faith may be better pointed to www.mormon.org as the link you provided is more as a resource page for members, whereas this link is geared more for those exploring basic beliefs. Keep up the great work!

  8. Hi there, stumbled across your blog accidentally, read "modest is not 'Hottest'" blog and loved it. I have no suggestions, just a lot of appreciation for your insight and beautiful personality shining through your writing. My Princess and I will be celebrating 17 years of a fun-filled marriage, fantastically laced by the fact we were sealed in the New Zealand Temple, we love our life with our beautiful massive 15 year old son, whom we hope one day will be blessed to be with someone possessing the values you have strongly exhorted. Thank you for juxtaposing this world with heavenly views... this Kiwi appreciates you all the way from Australia, best wishes to your wonderful family...

    1. Thank you for such a kind comment! I have always loved New Zealand, and have always wanted to go there and visit the New Zealand Temple! Maybe one day I will... hopefully! How wonderful to be sealed there and to be celebrating 17 years! Congratulations! I wish you and your family the very best. I appreciate you reaching out to me, it means the world. :)

  10. Wow your dating/engagement story is almost identical to mine.
    My husband and I had our first date on Dec, 30, 2005. We spent every day that his work schedule allowed (90% of his free time) together from then on. We became engaged the third Tuesday of May 2006, I can't remember the exact date. Married August 4, 2006.
    We will be celebrating 8 years in Aug.
    We had our first child 6 weeks after our first anniversary, and now we have 2 boys and a third on the way. :) BTW I turned 19 less then a month before our wedding. Being a Teenage Bride is so wonderful and challenging!

  13. Hey I am so excited to know I am not the only to get married at such a young age! I have been married almost two years, I was 18 years old when I got married. My husband was 20 and we are the happiest we have ever been in our lives! I can't wait to start a family but will probably still wait two years before having one. I must say it is pretty amazing knowing that I will never be alone again

  14. Dear Natasha,
    If there is one thing that I have gained from reading your blog, it is faith that my life will play out according God's timing. It is faith that someday I'll find the one that God has been preparing me to marry, and that I'll be the person that God is preparing for him. It's faith that everything will work out through the hard and easy times, and that athe the end of my life, I'll have no refrets for making the right choices.
    Thank you for your funny and inspiring stories. Thank you for being a role model to look up to. Thank you for increasing my faith.
    Katelyn Wilhelmsen
