Hi, I’m Helena Swyter. This blog is primarily an exercise in memory-keeping.
I love to talk; I’m a story-teller by nature. I hope to capture the little details that make up my life right now with my family – my husband Will, our daughter Adelaide, and Odie the cat. We call Adelaide “Ada” – just in case you thought there were two little girls living here.
The three of us (+ cat) live in a converted factory loft in Chicago. Despite having lived in this city for ten years before Ada’s arrival, she’s given me reason to explore anew. I love Chicago – especially in the summer!
By day, I’m the brains behind SweeterCPA, the company I started in April 2012. I’m a Certified Public Accountant working to demystify the Internal Revenue Code for creative entrepreneurs. Interested? Give me a ring.
New here? Here are some favorites to get you started:
- I loved documenting my pregnancy and Ada’s first twelve months in photos
- In my School Days series I wrote about every year of school – kindergarten through grad school
