About Ashley & Whitney
We’re Ashley and Whitney, sisters only 17 months apart. Our Mom wanted twins and obviously didn’t get them so she got as close as she could. As you will learn, we are A LOT alike but different in many of our interests.
Let’s talk about the name: Our Southern Summers
- Our: duh, because there’s two of us and because the URL was MUCH cheaper with “Our” included
- Southern: derived from our birth state and still home to both of us
- Summers: you may think this is because of the season and while we will probably talk about our love of the Georgia heat, it is actually our maiden name (it’s a U, not an O…Suzanne Somers is NOT our rich aunt)

Ashley lives in the mountains of North Georgia. She is joined by her handsome German Shepherd, Justice. She is also the owner of two miniature donkeys (Poncho and Dolly) who reside on the farm near Atlanta. In her spare time Ashley enjoys being on Lake Chatuge, reading, traveling, and line dancing. She is a jadeite junkite, a farmhouse fanatic, and an alliteration-loving English teacher.
Whitney is married to Scott and they have two cats: Rambo and Lucky (he only has 3 legs!). She loves all things related to minimalism, finance, clean eating, travel, hiking, backpacking, and weightlifting. She is the “She” of He and She Eat Clean, a popular health and fitness website.
