here are a few things i find myself grateful for lately

for the beautiful support from so many of you for my book
(my scanner isn't wide enough to show every name ~ my cup overflows)

for the wee steps in starting a new one

for the steps of all i love both far + near
(here, a photo of our oldest, abe, in shadow in the middle back)

+ for my word of the year ((held))
+ how it continues to find me
(photo of my dad, who passed a few years ago, + i).

there is always goodness to count
because all of our lives count so dearly.
love to you xox

gather the flowers

maybe when we
gather the flowers

they are surprising us
+ are actually
full of our dreams
+ wings for our flight
+ taste like blue raspberry popsicles

as long as their colors can last
for as long as we let them in.

ashley inzer

Hi, I'm Ashley Inzer and I run an intuitive graphic design & high end branding business. I work with entrepreneurs who dare to create the reality they dream of living.  This means I work with some serious rockstar women who run conscious-based businesses. Most of these women are coaches, healers, authors, artists & rebels. I really love the rebels :) They reveal to me time and again that we really can have it all. 

Since I am naturally an empath I feel things about people, you know? I also have 12 years of professional design experience. This makes for some seriously remarkable graphic design & brand strategy. 
  • I am fascinated by human behavior and the mind/body/spirit connection. 
  • I believe in the power of good feelings and delight.
  • I take a stand for co-creation and compassion.

I live in Los Angeles, California with my animals & gorgeous husband. Please come and say hello through the links below!
