We are down-to-earth Austinites – born and raised in Texas!
I (Ashley) was born in Bryan/College Station to two Aggies (but don’t hold that against me). After growing up in Conroe, Texas, I attended Sam Houston State University. After graduating from SHSU with a BS in Finance, I joined Will in San Marcos at Texas State University to pursue my creative gene. Interior design is my passion and I’ve worked in the architectural design field since 2006 after obtaining an Interior Design degree. Will and I still enjoy going to Texas State Football games as “old” alumni.
Will was born in Conroe, Texas and raised in Cut-n-Shoot. He graduated from Texas State University in 2003 with a Degree in Communication Design. After graduation he worked for a major design agency in San Antonio, before starting his own business in 2010 as a Graphic Designer at wbCreative. His commute to work is much different than driving to and from Austin and San Antonio as he did for many years. Now, it is about 25 steps out the back door.
We just celebrated 10 years of being in love this past December. Not all days we are “in love” but most days we are. Yet, there is not a day that goes by that we don’t love each other. Will makes me laugh, and I fell in love with his humble, serving heart – not to mention his good looks. Daily I thank the Lord for the amazing man He has graced me with: to share life, its joys, its sorrows and everything in between. I couldn’t have dreamed or asked for better a partner. Will says I keep him on his toes and he loves my compassionate spirit. One of our greatest joys is traveling. Our favorite vacation, by far, was our wedding in Mexico on June 2, 2007.
After 4 years of marriage, we decided it was time to grow our family. In 2012 we were blessed by an uncomplicated pregnancy and a quick birth of our precious son. Right now he is a typical “almost” 2 year old. He is a sweet spirited, smart, gentle, methodical, and opinionated extrovert. (Not sure where he gets it from?!?) Although he looks like his daddy, he has many of mommy’s personality traits. We love being parents. Everyday we are blessed by his presence. It may sound weird, but all we want to do in our free time is hang out with this handsome guy! He is going to make an awesome older brother!!
As of November 4, 2014, we have a big update to add to our family page! It’s a girl! We think she is beautiful and are so happy to introduce you to her. This precious little one is described as sunshine. She likes hanging out with the big kids, she’s full of smiles, clever, outgoing and sometimes naughty. After learning more about her personality and medical condition, we feel she fits into our family perfectly. We love her already and are willing to do whatever it takes to allow her to thrive. We cannot wait to tell you more about her in the months and years to come!
