Three months ago. That was the last time I blogged. Before that, 2017 blogging was sporadic at best. It was a rough year of change for me. I quit my job, started a new one, moved to a new city, lost my grandmother, and struggled to find routine. But it was also a year filled… Continue reading Hello Blog? It’s Me, Ashley.
Happy Wednesday! A real life cold front came through two nights ago! That means fall temps where I can finally wear a sweater to work without having to change by the end of the day.

A week ago, I made a HUGE spring… Continue reading Spring State of Mind
Happy Tuesday! First, how is it February already??!?! Second, it's supposed to be in the 80's here today, so it definitely won't feel like February.

I can't wait to share pictures… Continue reading Happy New Year!- Christmas Recap, Goals, and 6 Weeks of Fitness and Clean Eating!
