Hi! I'm Ashley

I'm an Indiana native living in St.Louis dreaming about moving to Arizona. I'm a wife and mother to four beautiful children and I've been a stay at home mom for twelve years. In 2016 we sold our new construction home (out in the burbs) to purchase a 160 year-old fixer upper, closer to the city. We've been restoring and renovating ever since, and this is where I share that restoration journey. Through Instagram I found my love for homes, renovation, design and decor.  I've learned a great deal about partnerships, business strategy and consumers through my experiences and I'm thrilled to share these passions and knowledge with all of you.
