Joining the blogging world

So, I see you have stumbled upon my most recent adventure– blogging.

I have been an avid blog reader, well healthy living blogs, for a little over a year now and have tossed around starting my own for some time now. Most of my hesitation comes from my anxiety of not knowing where to begin. However, I know my focus– my pursuit of a healthy life.

Where shall we begin?

Agh, I suppose I should give you a short run down.

Again, my name is Ashley. I am originally from Louisiana, but currently living in Colorado.

How did I make it to Colorado? Well, this little place called Colorado State University. #rampride

CSU Graduation

I graduated from CSU in December 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology. My next step is to get a MPH (Master of Public Health) from Louisiana State. My dream job is to be an emergency management specialist.

Now on for some very important loved ones in my life–


What a good-looking family right? From left to right, my father (Steve), me, brother (Adam), sister (Emily), and mother (Vicki). Please excuse the Christmas picture. It is one of the few times that we are all together, which is sad, but I guess that is part of growing up. Each one of these people amaze me with their dedication, love of life and family, faith in God, and comedic like tendencies.

Another very important person in my life would be the boyfriend, Matt. We have known each other since the beginning of time  high school. We had our on-again-off-again after I moved but I think it stuck this time. I know it is cliché but this kid is really my best friend. He has been with me through everything

Matt and MeAnd finally, let me introduce you to a special lady, Nala.


She may not seem to thrilled in this picture, but she is definitely a happy go-lucky dog with an unlimited amount of energy.

Well those are the highlights. I look forward to joining the new world of blogging.

Stay tuned for my version of healthy living– a healthy gumbo if you will.
