Welcome aboard.

“Who’s flying this plane?” – Every mom, ever.

I’m Ashley – writer, dance partier, wife of a pilot and mother to three amazing kids. Being a mom is the hardest job I’ve ever had, mostly because I’m not sure any of us ever really know if we’re doing it right. Every day is a little bit like getting on an airplane without knowing where you’re going to land. Exciting, sure, but also terrifying. If you take a wrong turn, will the kids turn out okay?

I started this blog because I have a lot to say. (Just ask my husband.) In real life, I write marketing copy, magazine articles, fundraising appeals for causes close to my heart, and manuscripts for picture books I hope to read out loud in the bookstore someday.

Here, I’ll give voice to the things that make up our big little life … making peace with the parts that are up in the air, while teaching the kids to keep their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. (Unless they follow in Dad’s footsteps, or become Olympic pole vaulters.)

Thanks for joining me on this journey. I’d love to hear from you. Because if we’re gonna wing it, we should learn from each other along the way, right?

Until next time,
