Hello, I am Helene DeVita and welcome to my crazy life!
Let me start by introducing myself; originally from Long Island, NY, proud Air Force wife and stay at home mother of 2. After graduating from the University of Connecticut with a degree in psychology, I decided it would be a great idea to dive into the event planning business. That is where I worked for one of the top catering/event planning companies in Manhattan. After I met my husband (who I just happened to go to high school with), got on a plane, moved to Shreveport, LA where I switch careers a bit to work at a local mall’s management company (not sunglass hut), doing business development with a hint of marketing. Then I became a working mom for a year. When I found out I was pregnant with my son, we got orders to move to Minot, ND; Google it, Minot is way up near the border of Canada. Between trying to find a job and child care, we decided it would be best to just stay at home with the kids. Stay at home mom’s are no joke, this has been the hardest job I ever had in my entire life. But 2.5 years later I am finally owning it. Hello, my name is Helene and yes, I am a stay at home mom. Always on the move after a quick move from North Dakota to California, we are now residing in Belgium!
I have never written a blog before, I kind of struggle with writing a Facebook post. I do not love writing, but I do love FOOD! Since being a stay at home mom and living in the frozen tundra of North Dakota, I really have upped my cooking/entertaining game. So that is why I am here; I want to share my passion of food, entertaining and life with you all, oh and my love of making sugar cookies! (you will see more of those later) So I apologize for the writing, I am learning, but if we stick together we can do this! Please be gentle to me.
