Hey everyone, I’m Ashley and I’m delighted to have you visiting my blog. By day, I am an Accountant for the City that I live in. My amazing husband, daughter and I live in Idaho and enjoy spending time outside in the summertime playing sports, mostly softball.
I started lifewithmeashley.com as a way to share my ideas and research on topics such as finance, organization, planning and more. I always seem to find myself surfing the internet for things that interest me and thought it would be a good idea to create a blog where I can share everything that I have learned and am currently learning. I strive to find easier ways to accomplish everyday tasks, since we lead a very busy life. I’m happy to be sharing my opinions with you and hope that you find your time here well spent.
This past year has been especially busy for our family. I was able to complete my Master’s degree in Accounting and pass all 4 sections of the CPA Exam. My husband and I were married on August 4, 2017 in Las Vegas. The wedding was amazing and my daughter is overjoyed to have an amazing 2nd Daddy who is always there for her. Before I met my husband, I had just gone though a divorce and was taking care of a 1 year old mostly by myself. Being a single parent taught me so much, and even though it was probably one of the hardest times of my life, I am a much stronger person because of it. I recently found a quote on Pinterest that said, “Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.” This quote clearly applies to me and I am very grateful for the life I have now.
Thanks for taking some time to get to know me and I hope that you find my blog a place you like to visit frequently. Please enter your email below to be included in my mailing list that will keep you up to date on blog posts and happenings.
