Welcome to Morning Beans. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee, pull up a chair, and let's chat! I'm Helene and I am many things: writer, artist, mother, daughter, wife and friend. I write for all of us: the overworked homemaker, the executive goddesses, the poets, artists, and the wild hearted women

I believe life is about living your dreams, and sharing your story. And we all have stories. It's about being human and sometimes fallible.

Come visit often, and let my words move you, motivate you, and make you smile.

I believe in the power of words, in colorful conversations (often with strangers) and in the bright spark of friendship.

Welcome new friends.
