Megan Marie Helgeson
I am an editorially challenged writer, wine and cocktail enthusiast, giggle glutton, home cook foodie, and creative impostor. I succeed and fail at being a kick ass mom and amazing wife at least a thousand times every day. Nature is my church, yoga is my surrender, and my family is my true North.
This is my journey, our journey, the journey; uncovering and unraveling. Trying to read between the lines of the never ending To-Do-List and discovering me. The awesome, shitty, beautiful, ugly, funny, smart, dumb, loving, bitchy, confident, and confused woman that I am…with a big glass of wine in hand. I refuse to label myself for my convenient understanding. I’m going beyond the awkward blurb about myself, to those uncomfortable places that exist behind the insecure laugh, to the truth beyond the sarcasm, to the culprit of the wound under the scab, to the true naked beauty in the mirrors reflection. I need to find presence with every ugly cry and every tear of pure joy. My gratitude for this life is beyond measure, so I’m going to try my hardest not to fuck it up. And in the process, I shall cheers to both my mom fails and mom wins. So, join me… enjoy, relate, join in, laugh, cry, comment and pour a tall glass of wine with me, because I’ll drink alone if I have to, but I’d prefer your company. This is My Imperfect Life, Perfectly Happy.
