Hi, I’m Helena.  I have a husband, three little girls, a dog and a sometimes complicated extended family with a cultural heritage that would take another page to explain.

Then there’s the career, the cooking, the gardening, the many crafts, music, books, movies,  the fitness regime (or lack thereof) and places I’ve seen or would like to visit.   Did I mention the cooking?  The list goes on.

Make no mistake.  I’m no Martha Stewart.  I have yet to serve time and most days are just about getting the family through from one end to the other.  Familiar? Thought as much.

So this blog is about stuffing all those good things in: love, laughter, new experiences, favourite recipes…

If you find something that’s useful or that makes you smile I’ll have done my job.

In the meantime, here’s to a life lived lavishly

  1. Hi Helena – I’m so glad you left a comment on my blog so I could find yours! Even though my three children are all launched, I still have that feeling of there being so much to do in life! I think a life well-lived is full of activity and curiosity, so there’s always something interesting to do or explore. I’m looking forward to following your lavish life!
