Friend Of The Week – Ashleigh at Simply Wright

Ashleigh Wright

This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Ashleigh, the blogger behind Simply Wright – a lifestyle blog featuring a variety of topics including crafts, recipes, parenthood, travel and frugal living!

Ashleigh is a Californian girl who’s married to an Austrian and has 3 children who she describes as “the center of her universe”! She enjoys sharing about her experiences as an expat living abroad, and inspiring readers to interact with her on the topics she writes about!

Apricot Cake

One post that recently caught my eye is a recipe that Ashleigh shared that you just don’t see every day! The recipe is Austrian Apricot Cake – Marillenkucken – a delicious, fruit-filled cake Ashleigh’s in-laws introduced her to! Although she was hesitant to try it at first because she’s not a fan of fruit-filled cakes, Ashleigh is so glad she did because “it seriously is one of the best cakes I’ve ever had!”

Be sure to stop and visit Ashleigh this week and, when you do, congratulate her for being chosen as our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Did you enjoy meeting Ashleigh and visiting her blog? Would you like the opportunity to be highlighted in an upcoming Friend Of The Week or In The Spotlight feature?

Be sure to leave a comment as we’d love to get to know you better – and be sure to share our Friendship Friday party with all of your friends!

    Thank you for the friend of the week feature! I enjoy your blog so much and all the linky parties you host! I have found so many wonderful blogs from here! When I first started blogging back in December, you were the first blogger to write to me and explain how the parties worked.. you were so nice and I’m so appreciative to you for that. Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for hosting another fabulous week of links!!! xx

    Hi Ramona!

    Where do you find these inspirational videos? This one was once again, well, very inspirational! I’m at an age where I’m just more and more ready to get rid of the extra stuff.

    Thanks for sharing it!

    Late again – oh well… That apricot cake looks divine – yum!

  12. Astrid says:

    I stumbled across this linky on the SITS Sharefest and am loving all the other contributions. Thanks for putting this together! Btw, why do you choose the text linky for the Twitter link-up? I see more social media linky hosts do this but it’s not accessible to blind people (the thumbnail one is which is why I’d joined in with the post sharing and not the Twitter one). I don’t mean to be a pain so sorry if I’ve aksed this before.

  13. Heaven says:

    Hi! I’m Heaven Smiling. This is my first time here. I found you on The SITS Girls. I’m linked up at #202 with my hot fudge. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it. Thank you for the party. I’m looking forward to being a part of it often.
