about emma

I'm the "e" in R and E Ashby and I'm the main writer of this blog. 

I am the fourth child in a family of eleven children. I am the first girl in that family and I love being an older sister and being part of such a big family. I love my siblings and parents and my sisters are my best friends. Everyone always asks me if I want a lot of kids because I'm from a large family and the answer is yes--although I'm pretty sure I won't be having eleven kids and I may change that answer once I actually have my first baby...we'll see. :]

I am majoring in Psychology at Northern Arizona University and minoring in Spanish {one year left!}. I would love to eventually work with kids with disabilities in some field. But more than anything I want to be a mother. I love that my education can prepare me for that and for so much more. 

I am married to a wonderful man {the "r"} and love spending time with him, whether we are on an adventure somewhere in beautiful Flagstaff or whether we are lazing it out on the couch watching The Cosby Show. He makes me smile and laugh like no one else and I love that I can be myself around him {and have been able to since day one}. I am so glad that he didn't run away when he saw my goofy side! Instead he embraced it and showed me his goofiness right back!

Some things I love {in no particular order}:
  • Being married
  • Being from a HUGE family {and getting more family when I got married}
  • Being almost done with school
  • Babies
  • Flagstaff
  • Michael Jackson: The Experience {dance game}
  • Singing at the top of my lungs {when I'm driving all by my lonesome}
  • Laughing 'til my stomach hurts
  • Dancing with my husband in the kitchen
  • Learning new things {sewing, cooking, dancing, how to play the piano, etc.}
  • My iPhone
  • Reading
  • Writing {for myself}
  • Watching movies {especially when I find really good old movies}
  • Finding good deals on clothes {I mostly shop at Target & Old Navy}
There is so much more but that's all for now. I am loving life, and loving sharing it with the world. 

My life is not always perfect but blogging is becoming a way for me to find the good and/or amusing in my life every day and share it with those around me.
