A Little About Andrea

me2016When I finally decided to start a website, I struggled with the concept and the name I would call it. I had to look at myself and figure out who I was along with what I enjoyed in life. I decided after much contemplation, and list making, that I really am a simple person.

This is what I decided about myself, simple things in life make me happy, and the most important things to me aren’t man made and sold on shelves (or online)! I love the beach, any beach really. Spending an entire day watching the waves roll in, strolling the shoreline for seashells, soaking up as much sunshine as I can and laughing at my husband and boys trying to body surf, is pure bliss.

I love to cook and bake, and I am not afraid to make dishes from scratch or even come up with my own concoction. I cherish the times when my two boys help me make cookies or any other kind of dessert.

I also love wine and I love learning about it too! I am especially partial to Cabernets from Napa, Paso Robles and South America, although, I just recently learned that I love Malbec’s too!

I love to paint. I love to garden and put my hands in the earth.

What’s most important to me above everything, is my family and my faith. I have a wonderful, loving husband, and rambunctious, hilarious boys who keep me going daily. We strive to grow stronger everyday in our faith in God and our love for each other.

God is at the center of all that we do.

I came up with Andrea’s Vista as my website name because “vista” sums up everything about me.

In the thesaurus vista’s synonyms are, field of vision, glimpse, landscape, perspective, seascape, outlook and scenery. I think this covers all of the bases of this website don’t you? Thanks for stopping by to visit with me. I hope this site inspires you in some way to create your own vista. By the way, I would love some feedback, so let me know you were here okay?
