Meet Ashley

Hi, I’m Ashley!  Welcome to my small space of the internet.

I married my high school sweetheart, Garrett,  in 2014 and we live happily in California with our three sons and many farm animals.

I originally started this blog to share my journey about going back to school as a mom and over time, it has evolved.

This has become the space where I document the best and worst of my motherhood in a way that can be encouraging, entertaining, and educational for you.

I love being a stay-at-home parent and having a creative outlet (like this blog) has been an essential part to enjoying that role.

If you like being a mom {most days} and reading about, ya know, mom things.. you’ll like it here.

More specifically, if you’re a mom who overthinks and overpacks, has a never-ending to-do list, likes dry shampoo and reheated coffee, doesn’t mind run-on sentences, aaand you like reading about casual family moments, random nutrition facts, and the adventures of an amateur homesteader.. THIS blog is for you!

I’m so glad you found me and hope you enjoy hanging out in my little corner of the world.

Family of Five

10 facts about me:

1. I’m the oldest of seven children! While growing up I certainly had moments of wanting to be an only child…and then I married one and changed my mind! (Kidding, of course!) Our relationship was the typical love-hate-only-I-can-tease-you relationship but as we’ve grown up we’ve grown closer. Some of us are closer to others but whenever we’re together, we’re an absolute riot.

2. I have a degree in Nutrition and Health.

3. I have to put my right leg in my pants before the left. I have a crippling sense of unease if the left foot goes first. You guys.. I cannot be the only one!

4. I am a firm believer that tough love is the best love. As hard as it may be, I will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. My husband has the same policy with me and I promise I understand how hard but necessary it is to have this type of love in your life.

5. Mountains > Beach.

6. I start more projects than I finish (they always seem easier in my head). 😉

7. I’m an Aquarius. I have no idea what that means about my personality but I know I am one.

8. Home is my favorite place to be.

9. I’m a recovering perfectionist. It literally took me over a year to show this blog to anyone because it was never just right. It probably never will be and I’m finally okay with that (I think).

10. Tacos are always a good idea!
