Ashley Briggs

Move-in day.

This is the first day of our living together as a unit. Ashley moved out of his home he shared with his roommates in the Southbay and moved into my small one-bedroom apartment in the Valley. The month leading up to the move, Ashley sold all his furniture and downsized the rest of his belongings all within a few days. I, on the other hand, had a hard time throwing away the things I’ve accumulated over the years, convinced that I would be wasting its value.

Ashley helped ease my anxiety, patiently helping me sort out the things I should keep and things I could do without. He consolidated my shelves and I sorted through my clothes to make room for his things. I gave up half my closet space and my freedom to wear shoes inside the apartment. In return, I gained someone who can help me sort through life’s messes. He is by far, the better half in this unit.

    I am his sister in law and this is very sweet. You could not ask for a better person to spend your life with. Reply

      This is definitely the consensus with every one that knows him. Thanks Pam! Can't wait to finally meet you and Jamie. I've heard so much about you both. Reply
