::The goofy couple::

I (Ashley) am a born and raised CA Bay Area girl. My family moved around a lot when I was younger but I consider my home town Santa Clara because that's where I went to school the most. I am very laid back down to earth type but I also enjoy the finer things in life when I can afford them. I have an older sister who is my bestest friend and I'm very close with my parents and grandparents. Family means the world to me and I hold them dear to my heart. Friends that are family by choice as well. I consider myself very blessed. 

Daniel (Dan) is a 2nd generation imigrant. He was born in the UK and came over to the states when he was two years old. He has 2 brothers and 1 sister all younger than him. He is also a very laid back type of person who doesn't like to plan and likes to live day to day to see what's thrown at him. He's silly, strong, romantic when he wants to be, and kind hearted. He wears his heart on his sleeve and would do anything for his family and friends. He loves the outdoors and loves working with his hands. He's your traditional old school kinda guy and is not afraid to speak his mind. 

Dan and I have been together since Jan 2004 and we both can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together. I was your typical Disney Princess type girl who also loves sports and camping. He was your typical skater boi who loved BMX'ing and four wheeling. We have lots of fun together and love discovering new hobbies. Dan has taught me a lot over the years and he keeps me grounded to reality instead of day dreaming about fairy tales.

Dan and I met on New Years Eve of 2003. He was celebrating the event with friends in Redwood City and I was tagging along with a friend of mine who was visiting her boyfriend at the time; Phil. My brief introduction to Dan was about 5 minutes long; however long enough to peak both of our interest in each other.

After my friend and I left the party to ring in the new year at her Uncle's house in San Jose, she called up Phil and asked him if he wanted to hang out for a bit. He did, and by my encouragment, she asked Phil to bring his friend Dan with him.

After talking non stop for about 3 hours; the boys were heading home. Daniel tried to be sly and enter his number into my phone before leaving but he couldn't figure it out. So after exchanging numbers, we hugged goodbye and he said he'd call me.

A couple days later he called me and asked me out on a date. I was estatic. And as you all know the rest is history. Ever since then, we've always been having fun no matter what we're doing and keeping each other happy. It always amazes me how he can make me smile with just a simple look. Even on my worst days.
