My name is Ashley (my nickname is Shlee), I’m in my late 20s and I was born and raised in Chicago (go White Sox! go Hawks!). I’m a sports fan, Alpha Chi Omega, LGBT supporter, writer, HR professional, fast driver, and inspiring home decorator (for myself only!). This is a lifestyle blog. I like to share my thoughts about everything from fitness to DIY projects to fashion and food. Oh, and I like owls (which is why my header has an owl in it) …
The usual suspects that appear in this blog are:
- JP = my partner in crime and in life (woot!)
- Ella = my 5 year old adopted miniature pinscher (I adopted her in 2007)
- Chance = JP’s 5 year old lab who is Mr. Sweetness (seriously, the sweetest dog on the planet)
People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.
