First off, Happy 4th of July!!! And be safe shooting off fireworks why dontcha :)
Second, I am SO excited to be here today writing on Gentri’s blog as her blogger of the week! AND because it is the 4th of July! What an honor! Really Gentri is so sweet to ask me and I just love her blog. I feel like I have so much in common with her and that we could be BFF’s if I didn’t move away from Utah to Colorado. Well, we pretty much are BFF’s, let’s be real! Okay you may be wondering who I am…
And here is a little introduction for ya!
I’m Ashley and I’m the writer of Sloanbook. I’m just an American girl living in Colorado with Kevin (my husband) and Katinka (my long-haired Chihuahua). Kevin and I were married in the Denver, Colorado temple almost three years ago and marrying him was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The summer after we were married Kevin played summer ball in Albany, New York. He played collegiate Baseball for Brigham Young University (BYU) so he was training then, make sense?
While he was in NY, I was at my parents in Colorado and I was dying to get a puppy! I picked out little Miss Katinka who is a sassy little long-haired chihuahua beauty. We wanted to name her something funky/fun from another language possibly since you can’t name your children that haha. So we remembered we loved the movie Zoolander and Katinka Ingabagovinana is from the movie Zoolander. (Please tell me you know who she is haha) So Katinka it was :)
While Kevin played BYU Baseball he traveled a lot, so Katinka was there to keep me company. We both just graduated in April from BYU’s Marriott School of Management. Kevin studied entrepreneurship and I studied Marketing :) I blog about whatever I feel like and everyday happenings, so you never know what you’ll get but hey I could never write on just one topic :)
Being the 4th of July- Gentri asked me to talk about what it means to be an American. America to me is a land of opportunity and I try to not forget that. We are so blessed that we can believe in whatever we want to and go after any dreams that we have. I am so proud to be an American! I am so grateful for the soldiers off fighting for our freedoms and we all owe SO MUCH to them. I am so glad that I’m an American girl and glad that today is a special day to celebrate it. Happy 4th of July and I hope it is a special day to remember!
Anyways, I would love to meet some of Gentri’s friends so come say hi :) You can find me at Sloanbook HERE
