An Introduction

Where To Begin…?


Welcome to Helena’s Infinite Shades of Life!

Introductions go first: My name is Helena and I’m a full-time bartender and a mother of two boys. In my blog, I will refer to them as Bucky (14) and Koda (almost 9). I live with my kids, my husband, the White Tiger, my mother, the German Shepherd, and our two lovely dogs (Susi & Shenzi) in a country of ice and snow, where the winters last at least six months and the summers get neither properly hot, nor dark.

This blog is about my life – my adventures and the challenges I face every day as a mother, a wife and a woman.

Like so many before me I have discovered the intriguing world of blogging. Though the idea of possibly someday making a profit with such endeavor is rather tempting, it is not the driving force behind this blog.

Over the last months I have realized that my life has become (or has maybe always been) a rather exciting roller-coaster-ride. So I decided to collect and share my stories with the rest of the world…

The internal debate over whether to begin the story telling in the past, revealing every little detail about my blissful childhood or my angsty teenage-years and how I got here, or choosing the ‘now’ as my starting point for this journey, was eventually brought to a conclusion. So hop on board and enjoy the ride.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.


Now some of you might wonder what this blog is actually all about. In all honesty, I am not quite sure yet myself.

I’m just making it up as I go.

Surely, should you decide to stay on for a while, you will come across fascinating recipes I always wanted to try, but probably never will. Knitting projects that have been lying around for the past two years, will most likely make an appearance too.

Of course you will be entertained with funny stories about my kids (at least I will find them funny) and the occasional ranting about my job.

If you are looking for relationship advice, I have none. However, I will most certainly inform you about the latest arguments I had with my husband. Oh, and that really awesome movie that brought me to tears the other day… what was it’s name again?

Well then, if you are as curious as me to see where this goes, stick around and follow my LifeBlog. I am sure some of you will be able to relate to my randomness, because, hey, that’s life in all its infinite shades, right? (*^▽^*)
