Hi, I’m Ashley!

I’m a boy mom obsessed with coffee, true crime and carbs!

I am so excited to have this page to meet all of you and share our stories of failing forward through life together. But really, who am I? I am Ashley! A 42 year old mom of two boys who lives in Oregon and runs on distance running, coffee, day dates with my husband and authentic connections with other women.

Growing up I told my parents I wanted to be an “encourager/” not realizing it wasn’t an actual job, so I made it my lifes mission to create that job. Prior to my current situation, I was a teacher for 14 years in high needs schools and taught Special Ed and General Ed. I left teaching in 2015 when my kids were 5 and 2 ½ to begin a career in network marketing.

It was the best decision we ever made. Currently I am connecting with people on Instagram and Tik Tok under the username Lotsamiles.

I live my life out loud on purpose in the hopes that my struggles and failures will encourage others and help them find connections.

I believe in showing up. I believe in generosity. I believe in taking care of my friendships.

I believe in laughter and hope. I decided to start this page as a place of connection off of social media.

My goal is to connect us, laugh together, share our hopes, dreams and passions and, of course, (if you are a runner) log a ton of miles together.
