A Note From Ashley:
Thank you for taking the time to read more about who we are. It is greatly appreciated. We all have our stories and I’d love to hear yours someday. In the meantime, here’s ours. My husband, Kevin, and I met when we were young – really young. By a prank call, no less. We fell in love and got married a month after my 18th birthday, in 2005. We’ve been partners in every aspect of life ever since. We’ve homeschooled our kids for years and we run Kevin’s web design and marketing company from home as well. We’re homebodies and we love it.
In 2016, we took the leap and moved 5 hours away from everything we knew, so that we could be closer to the ocean. Our happy place. We began to build the life that had been calling to us. One filled with acceptance, peace, and freedom. We slowly peeled back the layers of expectations, labels, and judgements put upon us by others and really embraced who we were, who we wanted to become, and the life we wanted to live. We found our sense of calm within ourselves and have leaned on that ever since.
This summer, after what started as a spark of bravery and excitement, Kevin and I started Calming Escape together. The healing energy crystals offer, paired with affirmations, intention-setting, and journaling has played a huge role in my own personal healing and growth over the past few years. The thought of offering that to others who are embarking on their own journey is heartwarming.
So, for the past six months, we have both poured our love, sweat, and creativity into this project. Designing, handpicking, website-building, photographing, recording, writing, etc. We’ve created this business from the ground up and are excited to finally share this labor of love with all of you. In support of you. ♥
Our mission here at Calming Escape is to provide support and tools to individuals who are seeking out the calm within themselves and helping those who have found it, maintain it. Using crystals and harnessing the energy they offer is a great way to soothe your soul and boost your efforts towards your goals.
Setting intentions and stating affirmations can literally rewire your brain. Reading inspirational quotes and seeing visual reminders of positivity can reinforce the change you are creating. Journaling about the good, the bad, and everything in between can heal on so many levels. Small acts of intentional living can make a world of difference in your life. You deserve it and we are here to support you along the way.
