Whenever Scott and I arrive at a beautiful view one of us will look at the other and say ” Sweet vista!” This habit started organically. After the first 43 times or so of this we realized it was our new routine. I love that we want to acknowledge the beauty around us and also share it with one another.

This space is a tribute to all the sweet vistas in my life. A vista is defined as: 1 : a distant view through or along an avenue or opening. 2 : an extensive mental view (as over a stretch of time or a series of events). I will use this space to both share a glimpse of life as if looking through an opening and it will be a long view over a stretch of time.

So here is the first vista I will share. I live in Sedona, Arizona with my husband, Scott and our Cavapoo, Penny. We moved here because we wanted to. Sedona is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been and we are grateful we could move to a place that we love. I currently work as an educator at a wonderful school with some of the most amazing young people in the world. I love going on a hike in the red rocks, learning more about vegan cooking, remodeling our house, playing guitar, and a good book.

My plan is for this blog to be more of a journal for myself to look back on and see the beauty that a life brings. If you happen upon this blog and enjoy what you see, thank you!
