Premium Grade

Premium Grade....  I'm a high performance lady.  High performance requires higher octane.  I've got no time for knocks & pings (if you're not a car junkie, just look it up), I must remain a well-oiled machine. 
Really though, I'm Helen.  The mom.  The wife.  The employee.  The sister.  The daughter.  The friend.  The co-owner of a jewelry business (*cough* Pink Fish Designs *cough*).  The writer of a local park blog (*cough* DFW Parks & Playgrounds *cough*).  The do-it-all-and-still-find-time-to-stay-sane lady.

I love to cook REAL food for my family (I'm not a big fan of most processed junk).  I love to read.  I love riding my bike.  I love creating jewelry.  I love playing at the park.  I love espresso & chocolate, preferably at the same time.  My newest potential love?  Running.  I love the IDEA of running.  (Oh, and the cute clothes!)  The actual running part of running...  well, I'm hoping to learn to love it.  Right now it's just one foot in front of the other, one day at a time.

This is me.  I mean the real me.  Sure, I could give you a pretty picture, but, this is what I look like in "the real world" of my life.  Oh, and no, that's NOT soda I'm drinking.  I'm really not a fan of the stuff.
