About Me

Hi! I am Ashley, the girl behind Girl Talk! Welcome to my blog!
I am a twenty-five year old who graduated from Meredith  College in North Carolina. Since graduation I have been experiencing the real world without the help of mommy and daddy, with the exception that daddy gave me a job :). I have a wonderful husband, Timothy, that I have been with for over 4 years and the most amazing family and friends a girl could hope for. I also have a spoiled pup, Bailey. When I am not spending time at work or with Timothy and Bailey, you can bet I will be at the lake (if it is warm!) or shopping. Nothing beats a little sunshine or a rack full of Lilly Pulitzer!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate every single person who comes across my blog! If you want to contact me directly, feel free to email me anytime at: ashleystephenson011@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Love what you got join' on here, girl! Where in NC are you? I'm in Newton, NC {near Hickory} but my husband went to Carolina and lived there for 7 years. I'm loving all your wedding blogging. My wedding day was the best day of my life. I wish I could have been smart enough to document it.


    1. Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I live in Raleigh, NC not far from UNC! I am so excited for my wedding and am super excited about blogging about it!

  3. Ha our fur baby is Bailey too!! You and your fiance are just too cute!

  4. Hi! I just found your blog and I'm so glad I did! I almost went to Meredith College, but decided against it so I'm curious about your experience there. I'm also engaged, and I'm sure I sound like a creep but I feel like we probably have more than that in common. lol Can't wait to keep reading!

  5. I go to UNC right now, but I'm hopefully going to State next year for graduate school (fingers crossed that I get in). My boyfriend is at State right now and he has another year there, so we would be there together.

  6. Hi, Ashley,
    It's great to meet another NC blogger! I found you through the Grow Your Blog Facebook group. I'm enjoying checking out your site right now. Be sure to stop by and visit me when you have a moment. Have a great week!
