2007--The Year in Review

2007 has been a wonderful year--I can only hope 2008 brings as many accomplishments and as much joy! Here's a brief recap of 2007 in the life of Ashley. :)

January and February were cold, as usual, so come March, we blew this place like a cheap flip flop. Miami where we met up with our wonderful friends Chrissy and Jess, San Juan, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten were our destinations of choice and life could not have been any better. This trip also introduced us to the wonderful world of diving.
April is usually a lull month for us as we recover from March's trip, finish out school and prep for finals, which brings us to May and a major life accomplishment. (Oh, and in case you're wondering where my aviation/airline background comes from, I actually hold a B.B.A. with a major in Airport Management). :)

The Summer of 2007 was a busy one, and we got to spend some time with friends, got to see my mom run her first 5K (I hope to join her this year), added a new little addition to our family (a bunny, not a person!), and got SCUBA certified.

Fall, as you know, was insane. I started graduate school, got my advanced dive certification in Portsmouth, MN, and, of course, finished up those last few months and before my wedding, including my last tea and krumpets with my girls. ;)

Which brings us to November and the biggest life event of the year (and our lives thus far)--our wedding. (I have my professional photos so a day three recap is coming soon!)

In December, we got the pleasure of enjoying some VERY expensive Executive Suite hockey tickets for the biggest game of the year. Unfortunately, we lost, but it was fun anyway (hello--there was free booze!). ;)

Then, it was off to our super fabulous honeymoon in Playa del Carmen (recap from that coming soon too!)

Immediately upon our return, we headed north for Christmas with my family, and on 12/29, my parents hosted a reception locally so that we could celebrate with friends and family who were unable to make the trip to the wedding. I don't have any pictures yet, but as soon as I do, I promise to share. :)

2008 promises to be an exciting and well-traveled year--A look-ahead coming soon!

Hope you all had a very happy and blessed holiday season and thank you for sharing your internet time with me! I have lots of super fabulous travel info saved up to share with you!

Saludos desde Chile.

I'm a lurker, but I thought I'd come out and say hi on this post...

I studied Sports Management in college. In Spanish when I tell people what I studied I say, Administracion de Deportes. Guess what people have thought I've said on multiple occasions? Administracion de Aeropuertos...yep, you guessed it, Airport Management :)

And up until now I didn't even know that really existed. Thanks for enlightening me!
