So I’m taking a page from a fellow blogger, Our Greatest Desire, and decided to do the 31 Day Blogging Challenge. Maybe I should have chosen a month that actually has 31 days, but whatever. I figured this would be one way to keep me blogging and connected this month – it’s going to be a difficult month for me and my natural tendency is to pull away and withdraw into myself. However if there is one thing my support group taught me, it’s that being connected and the presence of others can be very comforting so I am going to try and do that, even if it’s just through this blog. Day 1 is introduce yourself and post a recent picture.
I’m Ashleigh from Massachusetts. I will be 32 years old next month. I have known my husband (he is 36) since we were in elementary school, but we didn’t start dating until I was in college. I was born and raised Catholic but right now I’d have to say I am an atheist. My political leanings are liberal. I’m a New England Patriots fan (#doyourjob!) and looking forward to tonight’s Super Bowl. I do support all Boston teams but have never been to a Celtics game, have been to only one Bruins game and a handful of Red Sox games. I have two pet children (a dog and a cat) and I adore and spoil them. I have one brother who is a year younger than me. I like to read, run, and practice yoga. I took figure skating lessons for 11 years and quit when I was 17. My favorite foods are pizza, fried chicken and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. My favorite vacation spots are Martha’s Vineyard and West Palm Beach. My favorite TV shows are The Americans, Modern Family, Mad Men, The Goldbergs and The Daily Show (I have a TV addiction and my DVR is always in overdrive.) I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Political Science and an MBA – I work in Finance. My husband and I have lost two babies in the past year and TFMR each time.
Wow, I kinda feel like that introduction could take the place of tomorrow’s 20 Facts About Me!
Anyway, here’s a recent picture of me – today to be exact. Gotta rep my favorite team. I do try to keep this blog somewhat anonymous so …. didn’t really want to put a head shot.
