Hi! I’m Ashley and I am the owner and creator of The Ordinary Hippie Blog and Community. I have been blogging on and off for several years. I was motivated by a desire to be able to talk about important topics I am passionate about:
Supporting Small Businesses
Social Justice Issues
And overall, trying to be the best human I can every day
Unfortunately, I did not always have a platform or people that I could share these topics with. So the thoughts and ideas stayed bottled up. Until now.
I am influenced by my deep Catholic Faith, my family (my husband is from Central America and I have a newborn, biracial daughter), and experiences with various cultures and countries. I am most passionate about driving the dialogue behind living ethically, feminism, and defending the inherent human dignity of all people.
My desire has always been to generate authentic conversations about sustainability, feminism, and shared experiences.
My goal is to bring the world a little closer together and encourage us to be the best humans possible.
Being an ordinary hippie is about living an authentic, imperfect, beautiful life of being the best humans possible.
So come and sit awhile, find what resonates with you, share your ideas, don’t be afraid to ask questions, and don’t be afraid to be imperfect. Come for the vibes and stay for the journey.
