Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Ashley and I am a Wisconsin native with what I would refer to as having a Midwest heart. (AKA Packer heart). As an avid believer in never settling with life, and I thrive off of discovering new ways to push myself out of my comfort zone. Whether it be through fitness, faith, love, or nature, I believe life is about creating your own design. I created this blog hoping to share my adventures and inspire others to live a passionate life along the way. Life doesn't have to be lived by default. You can live it through creating your own à la carte design.

Now that you know what this blog is about, I suppose I should share a little bit about what's going on in my world! In May 2013 I married my better half, Kyle. He is seriously my rock and my best friend. His patience with my habitual lateness and his support through all my spontaneous and ever-changing wild ideas is remarkable and deserves recognition in and of itself.

I'm passionate about dance and spent four years dancing professionally in the NBA. And while I've since retired from my NBA days, I still continue this love dancing for a performance group in Milwaukee. More than likely you will also find me busting out moves while I clean or practicing turns down my hallway versus walking. Dancing runs through my veins and at times I think drives Kyle nuts when I can't be still. Again, his patience deserves applause.

I am also a runner. And yes, more than likely you will find me dancing down the streets from time to time on my runs. What started out as a New Years resolution to "run more" has now turned into a daily passion. In 2014 I decided to take the leap and run my first half marathon. I immediately fell in love and within a month had already signed up for my second race. I am currently training for one this summer, as well as a bike race. 

I believe a steaming cup of coffee in the morning always makes for a great start to any day, and  laughter truly is the best kind of medicine. I find inspiration and freedom in the great outdoors and enjoy the rush and relaxation of boating, biking, and kayaking with Kyle. AND I believe traveling is the perfect reminder there's always more to living. 

I'm just looking to trek through this life the best way possible and live it through my own design. Come join the crazy ride!
