About Ashley

I was born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in Westlake Village, just north of L.A. and after I graduated from High School, I went to college up at Santa Barbara City College. In 1994, I moved to Arizona to make a new start after a bad break up and met a bunch of great people, including my husband, in 1995. We were married in 1998 and decided to move back to California. We decided on San Diego, because it was a little bit cheaper than L.A. and it was the perfect distance from our other friends and family. Did I mention my husband and I went to the same high school? We never knew each other, but met in Arizona. I have a whole story about FATE, but that will be in another blog post.

We currently live in San Marcos, CA, a suburb in north San Diego county and just 20 minutes inland from the beach. We have two kids, an 18 year old girl, who is currently attending the local Palomar College (we couldn’t say no to FREE college!). We also have a 10 year old boy, who is in 5th grade. Yes, I realize the BIG gap in age and yes, they do get along pretty well…most of the time!

Now that my kiddos are older and I have a little more time on my hands, I’m ready to share my stories, experiences, revelations, travel experiences & more. I also hope to spread some kindness, because God knows we all need a little bit more of that! Feel free to drop me a line any time at info@socallifestylewithashleyz.com!
