Here Goes Nothing
For as long as I can remember, I have been told that I should write; most recently a book. I have always found great joy and pleasure in expressing myself through written word; also non-verbally but that is an entirely different post in itself *rolls eyes*. The idea of writing a book fascinates and terrifies me; while I have been known to spill all of my truths all over Facebook, a transparent social media post does not a novelist make. So, here I am, coming to you one blog post at a time in an attempt to test the waters to see if I am cut out to write to the masses.
Who am I? Well, I am a foodie to my core. My grandma passed before I was born but the woman was a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen; I've been told that I am a bit like her in my demeanor and I like to believe that she is by my side for each delectable creation I make to be consumed. #littleHelen for life. I love creating, assembling, building, sewing, crafting...ALL the things, and I rejoice in the victories and find humor in the fails. Above everything, I love giving endlessly of myself to help others. I believe in banding together, speaking up, leaving it all on the table.
My family is amaze-balls...and my everything! My husband and I met at a bar (like most Wisconsinites) and he, playing hard to get for months, finally came over for a chili dinner and the rest is history. He is brilliant, driven, funny, and my very favorite person! Bryan and I prayed for what seemed a lifetime to grow our family until finally, our journey lasting over three years, came to the happiest of endings with the call from the fertility clinic that we were pregnant. Our twins, Nolan and Adeline, were born in July 2017 and our hearts feel as if they're constantly overflowing. Our kids are magical and full of life; they were perfectly made in His eye. Bryan, The Duo, and myself have three fur-babies and a supporting cast of the best family and friends on the planet. We are blessed beyond comprehension and live a perfectly messy life!
My hope is that this blog will inspire, entertain, lift hearts, and show you a piece of my chaotic paradise. I am so excited to have you here; thank you for joining me. If you want the latest and greatest, be sure to subscribe to my email list!
