The book just arrived on my doorstep. Today is the official release day for The Summer's End, the third novel in New York Times Bestselling Author Mary Alice Monroe's Lowcountry Summer Trilogy. Today also marks Mary Alice's 20th year as a published author, and it was an honor to attend the book release party at the South Carolina Aquarium last night.  Anna Lee, Me, Mary Alice Monroe, Nicole Seitz, Donloyn Gadson and Angela May. ...

Telling our stories is a risk. But we need to let people see us, and know us. 
When I stood before the audience of 300+ people the Charleston Music Hall on Sunday, I said, "We're about to take you on an emotional ride. So brace yourself."  I heard echoes of agreement coming from those who'd seen last year's  Listen To Your Mother show—they knew it was true. Twelve women and one man were about to take the stage to read true stories about motherhood—stories they'd written themselves. Photo by Jody Mack Photogra...

Join my "Happiness for Beginners" virtual book club in may with author Katherine Center!
So I'm back from spring break, but I'd hardly call it a break. Because... Spongebob.  With the kids out of school for a week, we headed down to Orlando to spend a few glorious days at the Nickelodeon Hotel, where you can pay $40 to get slimed. The kids loved it.  While there, I had about ten whole minutes to crack open Katherine Center's new novel, Happiness for Beginners. I can recall feeling like a beginner in my own happiness ...

My three-year-old walked inside the other day holding a bouquet of mylar balloons. "It's a birthday!" she exclaimed.  "Cate, where did you get those?" I asked. "The mailbox!" she said.  I ran outside, fearing that she'd stolen them from a neighbor's house. I spotted my boys coming up the sidewalk. "Where did Cate get those balloons?" "What balloons?" they replied, clueless.  Finally, our next door neighbor eased my panic, exp...

Do we really understand where people are coming from? It's something to think about. 
As a writer, I almost always have a running dialogue in my head. I piece together scenes in my own life. I write on this blog. I hit publish. Here, and on social media, I share my stories. I give my stories a way out , so I'm not holding them all inside. But this weekend, I said very little. Hello. Goodbye. Thank you for coming. Handshakes. Hugs. I listened, a lot.   That's because the Listen To Your Mother season is in high gear. Li...

Speaking from my own experience... and also, a free webinar coming up Wednesday night...
Staying together requires a lot of things: commitment, respect, and giving 100% of yourself while maintaining your own identity. Here are some ways to help.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Donloyn called me and said, "Hey, what are you doing Monday?"  "Nothing," I replied. "Absolutely nothing. As in, I wrote 'don't do anything this week' on my calendar." That particular Monday was the day after the Listen To Your Mother show, and I've learned over and over again that shortly after doing something big, I tend to be more emotional, and then all of the sudden, if I'm not careful, I get ...

Ann Imig remembers the time in her life—not that long ago—when each day felt like a decade. She was running after a preschooler and a baby, and her husband was traveling constantly. To keep her sanity, she started a blog. She found the humor in her day and wrote about it, and sharing those stories online provided the comfort and connections she needed.  Then, Ann got an idea. She quickly pulled together some writer friends and rallie...

A reminder to remember to take care of you.
My husband has been traveling a bunch this month, and when he left for a recent trip, I started finding sticky notes in random places. An "I love you" when I opened my laptop. A "safe drive" stuck to my steering wheel. (Perhaps you noticed that I'm almost out of gas?) And on the wall above my home office desk, “Don’t work too hard”.  The notes were particularly thoughtful, in a just because kind of way. But “don’t work too hard” had...

I'm over at +Best Kept Self  today, sharing how a change in perspective can make all the difference. 
Sometimes we resist our teachers and what they want to show us. Even when these "teachers" are in front of us. Read how Angie shifted her perspective.

My bookshelf in my home office is packed with non-fiction books. Mostly memoirs and titles related to personal development. And here on my blog, I've danced between these two styles of writing: memoir (personal stories) and self-help (life lessons and interviews). Back In 2008, I took a bunch of classes and became a certified life coach. When I launched this blog around that same time, I wore my life coach hat. My earliest posts were...

It's my job to teach my children this thing that I believe, even as I struggle to live it.
It's happened to me twice, and both times I was at Target. First in the diaper aisle, as I scanned the rows for a pack of pull-ups with the best price and best cartoon character on the front. The second time was in the parking lot, when I spotted a young mom collapsing a stroller and tossing it in the trunk in one fluid motion. It's a skill. I gave her a silent nod of respect.  Each time, I felt it. A pang of loss. The "new mom" sea...

Story
Tagline
Create a life that feels like home.
Introduction

Over the years, I've learned that home is much more than a physical place. Home is a state of being. It's a mind, body, spirit thing. It's a lifestyle.

I've been on a journey to feel at home inside my own life for much of my life. I finally experienced a turning point a little more than a decade ago when I left my career as a television journalist. I realize now that the past ten years have been less about reinventing myself and more about becoming my actual self. 

I started the blog HEART • SOUL • HOME to help you create a life that feels like home. It's a place where you come to get personal stories, interviews, tips and resources to inspire you to clear your space, embrace your creativity, live authentically and move towards what lights you up. 

Some other things about me: I'm the Director and Producer of the Charleston production of Listen To Your Mother, a national series of live readings celebrated locally on stages and globally via social media. I also work as an on-camera spokesperson, helping brands tell their stories. Behind the scenes, I'm writing a memoir.
