Today is one of those days where it really sinks in thinking about what I’ve gotten to experience in just 8 years time. It feels like an amazing tornado that has consumed me and flown by in an instant. As I sit here listening to the last show of our world tour, and after being on the road for pretty much over a year straight…I’m exhausted, but wouldn’t trade it for anything. These are the travels and the life stories I will share with the children I hope to someday have. I feel truly blessed in my often crazy life. Here I am, taking a deep breath and looking forward to being still for a minute. If I can still remember how…

    You’re a lucky lady to be able to travel so much and with such awesome people. But being on the other end, its great to have you be part of the KC camp and see you walk by and stop for photos etc when you do visit our towns/cities/countries. Hope you’ve had an amazing worldtour πŸ™‚

    What a nice blog to post just before Mother’s Day — to think about possibly being a mom someday. From experience, I think at first your kids will probably be more interested in stories of when you yourself were a kid and how you interacted with “Grandma” (your mom), like your stories of “Grandma” and the pink Maybelline mascara come to mind because that is what I also remember when I was a kid. Stuff like that. LOL. When your kids get older and can’t imagine you having any sort of life other than being their mom (my mom worked full time and also went to night school for her Master’s Degree and I still couldn’t imagine her having any sort of life before us), I think that is when they will really appreciate this stuff. Safe travels. Call your momma, again. πŸ™‚

    That was pretty awesome to read Ashley.
    Crazy to think the tours been going pretty much a year, wow thats insane. You guys are awesome for doing that just so you can make sure you get to everyone around the world, thankyou for that. The UK tour was amazing, i had so much fun and thanks for saying hello the couple of times i saw you. I remember seeing you dancing with alyssa at the London show and thinking how cute is was to see how close you guys all are.
    Thanks again for putting all the effort and long hours that you do, we fans really do appreciate it. ;D
    Enjoy your time off. x

    I can only imagine how busy and draining all your schedules are while on the road, especially all the traveling involved in the world tour, but like you said, it’s a chance in a lifetime most people will never get to experience. I’m so glad Kelly has had you with her all these years, even though she’s in the public eye all the time because she’s famous, it’s the people like you that she surrounds herself with, that keep her firmly on the ground.

    I hope you have a safe trip home, and finally get to relax. I bet y’all can’t wait. Keep the tips coming while your on your off time though, they are desperatly needed, ha.

    Thanks for the blog Ash.

    I know it’s not always easy for you, KC & Co., but it’s refreshing to see genuine appreciation for the incredible life one leads. Take care and enjoy your well deserved break! πŸ™‚

    What a VERY blessed life you’ve had, Ashley! You’re very fortunate to have had all of the experiences in the last 8 years that you’ve had, and I know that you’re the type of person who gives thanks for it all!

    I hope that you’ll have some time to catch your breath now, and keep relishing in the sweet side of life! πŸ™‚

    “Ash delays trans-Atlantic flights”


    Wassup with that, Ash? Come on. Let the flights through. Stop being a trouble-maker. πŸ™‚

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. Just letting the future kids and grandkids and greatgrandkids know the headline news on the day that you posted this blog. Hope everybody can get home. Safe travels, and (wait for it) call your momma, again.

    Jealousy creeps in easily when you read all of the amazing things some people get to experience and yet can’t even see how blessed they are.
    When you see someone like you can step back and be truely grateful for everything…..it’s impossible to feel anything but happy for them and wish them well.
    I’m sure you all put allot of other things in your lives on hold to do what you do…..and we are truely grateful for that.
