1st of all, to the folks that know me “in real life” no, I’m not going through some sort of identity crisis, nor do I have any kind of multiple personality disorder… In 2015 when I started throwing the idea of blogging around, I didn’t want to go by my first name (Ashley) simply because I was writing about such personal stuff. I guess it made me feel more secure, (and it made Joe smile) but I decided to go by Boe Rae instead. Of course once I started sharing my work, I learned most sites don’t like that. Identity Checks and whatever, pfff. But by then I had grown somewhat attached to my pseudonym, so I decided to stick with it.
I’m at that age where I can’t ever remember if I’m 26 or 27, I just know I’m not 30 yet. I married my best friend on 5/5/12 and still manage to fall in love with him a little more each day. We have a cranky cat and a spoiled corgi, who is definitely the boss of the house.
I’m an audiobook and True Crime junkie. Even though I love a good pun, I’m an awful joke teller. I’m happiest when I’m outside with my favorite folks and there’s an open bottle of wine close by. I love jewelry, goats, camping, big handbags, and watching funny cat videos.
I have a habit of quoting Wayne’s World and Strange Wilderness more than any one person should (you’ve been warned) and have too many favorite bands to list. But Bright Eyes, Kimya Dawson, TheFormat, Modest Mouse, and Alanis Morissette (yes…still) top my list.
I’m a sucker for love stories and happy endings. I do tend to prattle on about things, so I’ll keep this short and sweet so I have some “fun facts” to share later too <3
