The Adventure Awaits

My name is Ashley and I'm so happy to meet you. I started this page in June of 2019 when I realized I was going to get to buy the farmhouse of my dreams. I always wanted to blog to teach what I've learned and I thought now was the perfect time.

I am currently a full-time high school English teacher, sponsor of Student Council, going to Boise State University for my Educational Technology graduate degree, and in my spare time I'm the mom to identical twin boys.

Obviously I like to stay busy so I decided to buy a new house. My husband, David, and I previously purchased a 1969 ranch home in rural Wisconsin that needed a lot of work. I'll link some pictures below so you can see all that we put in. They are in a grid format so you can see what it originally looked like and then what we fixed.

All those pictures help remind me how far we came in three short years of owning that house. It gives me hope that I can do the same for our next one. Only this time might be harder with twins involved!

The Family

My husband is a Assistant Store Director for our local grocery story chain and works in Illinois. In his free time he plows in the winter, mows in the summer, works for our friend on his farm, and helps fix up the house. He works retail hours so he's not home a lot but he loves to spend time outdoors. Hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, kayaking, etc. His perfect place is outdoors.

And as you probably notice in the pictures, my twin boys are blue eyed blondes. Everyone calls them heart breakers but I hope that's not true! I can't wait to watch them grow up on a farm.

And that's my family! They are my biggest supporters and the reason we are on this crazy adventure. I can't wait to see what the future holds.
