Ashley and Josh first met snowboarding in early 2008. Ashley was 18 and Josh was 24. Josh's younger sister Nicole, who was a co-worker of Ashley asked her if she wanted to go snowboarding at Sierra-at-Tahoe with some of her friends which included her brother Josh. After that initial meeting Ashley and Josh got to know each other at work and through sports related activities. Both worked for the El Dorado Hills Community Services District (EDHCSD) and shared similar interests which included skiing, swimming, basketball, hiking and flag football.
Shortly thereafter, Ashley assembled an adult flag football team and asked Josh to join it. Their first public photo together was on May 17, 2009. It was a photo of their team, "The Flying Squirrels". The first official date was on February 14, 2010, Valentines Day. It was a long and event-filled courtship that included several colleges and moves to multiple states.
