My name is Ashley (my nickname is Shlee), and I was born and raised in Chicago (go White Sox! go Hawks!). I’m a sports fan, former sorority girl, passionate about LGBT rights, a writer, HR professional, fast driver, and wine drinker. This is a lifestyle blog. I like to share my thoughts about everything from fitness to DIY projects to fashion and food.
The usual suspects that appear in this blog are:
JP = my partner in crime and in life (woot!)
Ella and Chance – our 7 year old pups that we love more than anything!
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.
