The Journey Begins

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you stay a while and follow me along this journey. My name is Ashley and I live in Barrie (Just North of the GTA), Ontario. Canada has always been my home sweet home. I have a husband, two beautiful children, two German Shepherd’s and two cats. My sister and my niece are also living with us for a while, so our house can be pretty crazy from time to time.

I’ve started this website and blogging adventure because I felt a desire to share my stories, insights and methods on how I get things done around here. Being a SAHWM (Stay At Home Working Mom) is A LOT of work. I specifically feel a need to reach out to other moms and wives whose spouses travel alot for work. My husband is away for 2-4 nights every week, and on the nights he does come home, it’s not till about 7:00pm and the kids are getting ready for bed. He gets Sundays “off” (but still gets phone calls and text messages)and his only holiday is Christmas day and our family vacations. He even works Saturdays. I know there are SO many people out there that work the same way, or even more…but this Working Man’s Wife is left to do everything else at home and then some.

I also have a job that brings in some money here and there. I am a Travel Agent and love it. We own an investment property next door to us and I also manage that. I have interests in health and wellness, scrapbooking, Podcasts and Audiobooks, Beauty and Fashion (but no sense of my own personal style!) and I LOVE new makeup! I hate cooking, but don’t mind baking from time to time and I will try almost anything once.

I look forward to beginning this new journey with you by my side. I hope I can share some helpful tips with you and that you enjoy hanging out with me! Christina Stirpe Photography-1847
