About Me

About Me, ashandivy, Ash and Ivy, Ash & Ivy, Grand Rapids, GR
Hi friends! I’m Ashley, a young twenty-something year old living my best life in Grand Rapids with my hubs. I enjoy sipping on a glass of white wine or delicious hard cider in my down time. I am slightly obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy. By slightly I mean, basically I’m a surgeon. You can find me on the boat or floating on my 6 foot swan (from Aldi might I add) during these hot Michigan summer days. During the winter, you’ll be lucky if you can catch me outside. I love fall above all the seasons, but I may be a little bias considering I’m an October baby.

I started making in college as something to fill my time and get me out of doing homework (oops!). It wasn’t until after I graduated that I realized how much I enjoyed making all the things with my hands. I am so grateful to have the support of my husband during these crazy “trying to figure out your life” years. I feel blessed to have met other makers in my community that just get it. They understand what it’s like to be a maker and what goes into a running a small business. They are my saving grace.

I’m so excited that you have chosen to follow along on this journey of living simply, creating, and just loving my home state. Here on my blog you’ll find everything from lifestyle tips, my favorite local Grand Rapids hangs to how to DIY everything in your life! So grab your favorite glass of wine or a cup of coffee if it’s before noon (trust me, you can always get away with a glass of wine at lunch), subscribe to our mailing list and explore life with me.

I love to connect and network, so don’t be afraid to reach out to me helloashandivy@gmail.com
