Hello and welcome to my blog. First, a little bit about me….
My name is Sonya Andreanoff and I am an Alaskan through and through. I have lived in Alaska since 1976 and have traveled all over the state. I am married to an Alaskan Native from the village of Sleetmute and he is a pipe welder who has worked all over Alaska, including the North Slope. We have 3 great kids ages 12, 17, and 18. Our family currently lives in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley and that is about an hours drive from Anchorage. We enjoy road trips, camping, fishing, hunting, and more.
I have lived in many areas of Alaska: Soldotna, Kenai, Sterling, Nome, Bethel, Red Devil, Sleetmute, Glennallen, Tazlina, Anchorage, Wasilla, Palmer, and even the remote wilderness on the Holitna River. I have traveled to many more areas of Alaska and can pretty much say that I am knowledgeable in most areas related to Alaska. I have family in other remote areas of Alaska and I feel that I pretty much married half of Alaska when I married my husband. 🙂
I have an Associates degree in Computer Information & Office Systems from the University of Alaska Anchorage: Mat-Su College. I find that I love to write and have decided to make that my passion. I am considering taking some creative writing courses at our local college to develop my writing to its fullest. I will be writing about the great state of Alaska in this blog.
In my blog, you will find my recipes, my poetry, my Alaskan experiences, some helpful links and stories, and also a section where you can Ask Me about Alaska! I also hope to dispel all of the rumors that you may have heard about Alaska while I am at it. Many people have asked me questions about Alaska and I have heard many tourists get the wrong answers from tour bus drivers, etc and those tour drivers are usually brought up from the states as workers. I hope that you will stay tuned to learn more about my Alaska.
