Hello! My name is Ashley and I live in Washington State with my husband and two daughters. I work as a pediatric speech therapist and enjoy wine, cooking, entertaining, scrapbooking, and photography. My husband and I got married in Italy in 1999 and we’re hoping to go back there for our tenth anniversary in 2009. I started a blog called Bedrest Boutique while on extended bed rest prior to the birth of our second daughter in 2007. I was on bedrest for five months and hospitalized for half of that, so blogging turned out to be a great way to preserve my sanity and communicate with friends and family. The miracle girl was born in June, at full term and totally healthy–beyond anyone’s expectation. I had good intentions of maintaining Bedrest Boutique beyond the bed rest, but … well, with a new baby and a three (now four) year old to keep up with, the blog went by the wayside. I also refocused my energy on training for a half marathon, which I ran in October. Now, a few months later, I think I’m ready to give the blogosphere another go!
