Michelle Ashby & Kimberly Ashby (mother & daughter) My friends and acquaintances, describe me as warm, friendly, kind and funny. As a former librarian, I'm a life-long-learner with a passion for the arts, world cultures, and nature. Interior design, photography, flower arrangement and drawing & painting are my pastime hobbies. Our family's trip to the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest was my favorite adventure. I've celebrated over ten major milestones on the pristine pink sand beaches of Bermuda. The art throughout our home comes from our travels and reflects our appreciation for diverse cultures and medias. Can't wait to hear about my guests favorite experiences locally and aboard.
