According to my husband...
Shawn and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary here in California, so we loaded up the kids and drove to Aneheim to spend the day at Disneyland. On the way, I decided to ask Shawn what he's learned in our 16 years of marriage. He talked and I typed. I mostly kept quiet, but sometimes I had to interject as noted in italics. 1. I’m still learning about marriage. We're growing and changing and the marriage relationship is const...

I love that time of the morning when the light comes in through the side door of the kitchen. The light is pronounced and dramatic, and it makes me feel calm and centered. When the light shines in like this, I like to work at the kitchen counter. A few hours later, when the light moves to the front of the house, I follow it to the sofa by the window in our living room/office. This light feeds the writer in me. I write better in my...

As I mentioned in my last post, Charleston winters are fairly mild. So recently when we had those few cold days when a hoodie or a fleece pullover just wasn't enough, it was a last minute scramble. We dug through the box in attic and found half of everything we need. One child had a hat. The other had a scarf. No one had gloves. Scratch that. We found a single, pink, leopard print mitten. I was on it. Off to Target I went, collectin...

One small mental shift or one small tweak in how we do things can free up energy and emotional space and make room for the people and things that bring us joy. It starts with taking an honest look at how we're really spending our time.
Most of the women I know are tired. Between family and work and all of the things... it begins to feel like too many things. In part two of my conversation with YES DIET creator Shauna Mackenzie, we talk candidly about the mental blocks we have around delegating and money, and the unnecessary stress we place on ourselves. Shauna says we have to give all of the exhausting things credit for being truly exhausting things. But here'...

Will this be the year that I'll finish the book I’ve been writing for years, the year I’ll blog more consistently, the year I’ll get back in shape? Is this the year I’ll knock the dust off my starter DSLR camera and finally learn how to use it? Is this the year that I’ll make my home feel more like home? The only way to change the answers from maybe, or one day, or I’ll try to a big, loud, unapologetic YES! is to create space for it.
Skirt® is all about women...their work, play, families, creativity, style, health and wealth, bodies and souls.

We're redoing the living room in my house. I'll write more about that project at some point in the future, because if you're like me, you love to see the before and afters. But there's also something that's harder to love, and that's the big, huge middle in between. So while I'm in the middle, I'll share what I posted on Instagram yesterday: "I finally finished painting the living room. It took three weekends to complete. That's...

Recently I told you that I’m writing a book that begins when I got married here in Charleston almost 16 years ago (which feels unreal). So when Borrowed & Blue, the online resource for planning Charleston weddings, asked if I’d join them for a Q&A about home and happily ever after, I gladly said yes. First, a quick hello from Helen at Borrowed & Blue: “I discovered Angie’s blog when I was looking to learn more about the awesome bl...

It's been a long time since I've talked about the book—the memoir I finished just before Cate was born four years ago, and the one I'm now rewriting. Rewriting, not because I'm not proud of the first version. I am. The story is there. What I'm working on now is the same story, but with a protective layer peeled away. And because of this, it's been slow going at times. A lot of pausing and going deeper and getting closer to the heart. ...

Sometimes it's as simple as that.
We didn’t get pounded with snow over the weekend like my friend Abby in Baltimore. Here in Charleston, snow is something we rarely see. But as the weekend approached and the sky turned gray and rain fell, there was this feeling in the air that a snow storm was coming. View on Instagram Our typical routine on Saturday morning is to let the kids play for a few hours while Shawn and I sit on the sofa, drink coffee, and click around o...

In my last post, I wrote about how I'm teaching myself to say no more often to make room for the right kind of yeses. So here are some of the big things that are getting my YES in 2016. Making my home feel more like home. The first step, declutter. This past weekend, my husband was out of town and I sent the kids to my mom's for the night. I turned on some music and started tossing Lego boxes down the stairs. I feel so much lighter n...

Join me on a lifestyle cleanse: 30 days of no to get to a healthier yes.
I ran into a former coworker at the grocery store recently. We tried to count back and concluded that we probably haven't seen each other in at least a decade. We're both in much different stages of life than we were when we worked together all those years ago at the television station. We've both gotten married, changed careers, and become moms. During our conversation she mentioned that she was in a season of "no." I nodded, knowi...

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.
