Hi Y’all

Welcome to my big fat American Dream!

As you may be able to tell by my greeting, I am a Texas girl born and raised. However, I make it a priority to leave this great state every year to see the world, sometimes with kids in tow. Speaking of kids, my husband and I have a blended family consisting of his two biological boys, my two adopted kiddos, and our newest addition due in July. We also have two large pups, and a blind old lady pup who rules the others. We both work full time, and I have a few side gigs that I run to keep myself sane. Of course, the ultimate goal is to gain my freedom from corporate (#fempire).

I love to travel, read, write, initiate random living room dance parties, and cook when I have time. Our current home is a work in progress, and so is finding the most enjoyable efficient way to keep us all from going crazy in the midst of it. I am a big proponent of life hacks that actually work, getting out of our comfort zone, coffee, and wine.

I am so glad you’re here, and hope to get to know each of my readers better over time. Please don’t hesitate to comment, disagree, agree, cry, whatever you need to do to connect on this blog. I simply ask that everyone respect each other.

Love & Luck,

Ashley
