Hey there! I’m Ashley, lover of all things Disney, Star Wars and fun. I started Attempts At Domestication in 2007. My office job was boring me out of my mind and I stumbled across a little blog called Young House Love. Ever heard of it? 😉 It opened up a whole new world for me and I decided to give the whole “blog” thing a try. And here we are!
Jesse is my handsome, silly husband that helps make my harebrained schemes realities. We met through youth group in 2001, 12&15 years old!, and I always had a bit of crush. Our age difference kept us from dating (because it mattered then), so we just became good friends instead. We finally started dating in 2007, engaged in 2009 and married in 2011. As a testament to our mutual nerdness, we honeymooned in Disney World! He keeps me laughing and he keeps me fed. Two most important things in life.
In 2016, Jesse and I became parents to our precious girl Mara. I left my job to stay at home full-time with her. It’s definitely a tough job and she keeps me on my toes, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
