I am Andrea & I blog here. Photographs & words are among my two favorite things in the world. I share them here as a reminder of life's great blessings; my family, my faith, a beautiful world to live in, & moments shared with those I love. More than anything, I want to share my REAL life. I promise to stay true to myself, & share how life really goes around here. If you want to keep up with what I am doing regularly please follow me on Instagram @valleyviewabode We just finished building our dream home, & I am sharing all sorts of beautiful home ideas there. I am trying to keep up with some of it here, but it doesn't translate here as fast as I would like. So follow along & see what we are up too, & I promise to keep sharing here too!
