About us!


We’re Sam and Ashley Harper. We started this blog to share our journey after Sam’s diagnosis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in August 2015, less than two months after our wedding.

We wanted to keep those who care in the know not only about what treatments we are using and pursuing but what exactly we are doing with ourselves during this bittersweet, rollercoaster of a time.

Most every photograph is taken by Sam, and the writing is done by me. So, enjoy!

We hope that our little life, nestled between immense pain and piercing joy, inspires something concerning the business of living.
