Welcome to Military Spouse Living.  My name is Ashley Dougherty and I am a military spouse. I am also a proud mom of two little girls, Avery and Alyvia.

My husband and I met in 2005 in Jacksonville, Florida and married a year and half later in June 2006.  Shortly after, we moved to San Diego, California.  Our next station was Oahu, Hawaii for 2 back to back duty’s.  Next we were off to Monterey, California, for two years and now reside in Augusta, Georgia.

I have always been the type to have a job, but being a military spouse I have learned it gets harder and harder to get a job when your resume shows every 2-3 years you move.  In Hawaii, it was one of the most difficult places for me to find a job.  This is when I started a blog called hawaiishopaholics.com (I have since rebranded Hawaii Shopaholics into TheSpenderella.comwhich took off and I became an entrepreneur by teaching others how to live a frugal lifestyle.  I published a book called Couponing in Hawaii while living in Hawaii and learning how to stretch our money on one income.

Since moving from Hawaii, I realized how much I miss teaching others and sharing what I learn along the way.  Therefore, I am starting this website to share what I have learned about being a military spouse and hope others will follow and join in with sharing their stories.
