Dec 17, 2018 | Meet A Mom
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
Ashley – Grew up in Cary, NC.
Jenni – Grew up in Blacksburg, VA, moved to the Triangle in 2007
Children and Ages?
Ashley – Two girls, ages 8 & 5
Jenni – Two girls, ages 5 & 2
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
Ashley – I’m one of the unusual people who doesn’t like regularly listening to music.
Jenni – I’m one of the unusual people who has positive associations with all three major Triangle area universities and will gladly support all of their sports teams.
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
We are kind of each other’s village and have survived raising young kids largely because we’ve leaned on each other. (And our supportive husbands too, of course.)
Favorite things to do with your kids?
Ashley – We love going on adventures to new and fun places (like the State Fair or Washington, DC).
Jenni – We keep it simple and love going to parks and playgrounds. Sometimes a playground is the best thing to make both my kids happy at the same time!
