I’m Ashley – a mother of three amazing boys and wife to one husband. We also have two dogs and a cat. So to say the least, we have some pretty crazy adventures and fun times.
A couple of years ago we moved to North Carolina on a crazy whim and we haven’t looked back yet. This journey has opened up opportunities I never imagined for all of us. We’ve experienced a lot in our years together and somehow have managed to keep ourselves laughing through the entire ride.
I truly believe laughter is some of the best medicine and I do my best to keep my sense of humor and quick-witted tongue seasoned up for the right moment. I love making others laugh and feeling that ache in your ribs when you’ve been laughing so hard you can’t breathe. I hope to help others do that through this platform.
In my professional life I work in human resources – but with that mouth, you say?! I know, I’m just as shocked as most people. The skinny of it is I really like helping people and I really like making a difference through the projects I work on. My job has helped me grow tremendously and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.
End goal though? I want to be able to write full time. I’ve been working on my first novel for quite some time and other writing projects in between. You, dear readers, will also be following that roller coaster ride. It typically consists of erratic thought processes and a sickening amount of coffee consumption.
Which leads me to my next bit – coffee. Lifeblood. Go-go-juice. Whatever you want to call it. I need it. Doctors have told me for years, “You struggle with anxiety, you should lay off the coffee,” and my typical response is, “We’re breaking up. It’s not me, it’s you. Totally you.” I’ve tried to lay off of it, I have….but at this point the majority of my body is made up with the delicious stuff, and there’s no going back.
There’s a whole host of things I could keep going on about, but then I wouldn’t have anything to blog about, so I’ll leave you all with this.
This blog is a safe space. One where I encourage all of my readers to interact and grow and laugh and sometimes cry…but let’s be real – mostly laugh.
