Following their initial meeting in October, Ashley and the Winter House cast member have teased the details of their romance — from hockey and football sporting events to a D.C. weekend outing to a holiday party date in New York City. Now, Ashley has officially spent time with Luke in his home state of Minnesota. 

During her visit to the Midwest, The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member appeared virtually on the December 19 episode of the Mention It All podcast. She joked that she's become a "Sporty Barbie" ever since she started dating the model thanks to all of the games they've gone to, and she said that she's been enjoying getting to "be around snow" ahead of the holidays.

In addition to the snow, Ashley was also happy that she got to know Luke's loved ones during her visit.  

"Meeting Luke's family and his friends has also been really cool," Ashley shared about the highlights of spending time in Minnesota. "It's nice. I mean, I miss my kids, but aside from that, I'm having a really good time."

Ashley also opened up on the podcast about her divorce from Michael Darby, and about all of the support she's been getting from fans as she's been getting to know Luke. 

"I've really built up a tolerance for really just living my own life. While I appreciate that there's an outpouring of support, ultimately I do live in a bubble when it comes to my personal life, my children, my family, my marriage," she added. "All of that I keep very close to my chest."
