Ashley Buenger has a day designer filled with blank pages and countless lists that she has written and never looked at again. She doesn't do organization. She stares in awe at other women who keep personal spreadsheets and use their planners with dedication. That will never be her. She's always called herself a "creative" which is just a sexy way to say undisciplined and sometimes flighty. So be it. She's accepting it and learning to be her best self in the midst of it. She's a new momma, writer and lover of morning chats, dancing in the kitchen, being outside and smiling at people in passing.

Jennie Rader is a Michigan transplant who never dreamed of living in Indiana, yet has found a happy home in the Hoosier state. She and her husband AJ have 5 children (and a dog, 8 chickens, and a gecko!) and live in downtown Indianapolis. They love to explore the city, be outdoors, travel, and share good food with all sorts of folks. She also has had the joy of using her role as a nurse, nutritionist, and birth doula over the years to love and support women in various seasons of life. She is happy to say she's living her dream, though its much more difficult (and more fulfilling) than she had imagined it some 20 years ago!

Ashley Wittmer believes in the power of coffee.  She loves adventures, obscure location hunts, and wandering around the woods surrounded by the smells of rotting wood and dirt.  She misses the mountains of PA and Amish cooking, but love the vast landscapes and sweet hospitality of the midwest. She is a classic ENFJ, recovering perfectionist and loves a good tasklist. Her ideal day is doing something creative with a friend and talking about life.  She also love hugs from her kids and hot chocolate mustaches after a good wrestle in the snow.  She met her husband Joe at summer camp.  They love tent camping, movies, grilling large pieces of red meat and impromptu dance parties.  They also desperately love Jesus.
