My name is Ashten, and I am a native Texan who has happily settled into Alabama life. A recovering litigator, I now work as in-house counsel for a bank and live in Birmingham with my amazing husband Dustin and our dog Trip. Dustin and I love to adventure, and I hope to share much of our life within the words of this website. I'm incredibly thankful for the support I've gotten from the hubs in this (and every) endeavor. You may find that I gush about him often in my writing, but that's because he is my very best friend and favorite person. He challenges me to be the best version of myself, and I am eternally grateful that God made him for me.

My words are deeply settled in faith and hope, as well as humor, irony, and love. I hope to share truths that are useful, challenging, and maybe even moving. I also hope that you enjoy the more practical and fun parts of this site because I sure have had fun creating them.

Welcome to my adventure!
