Friends, new and known, welcome to Habit & Heart!

My name is Cate, and I am the girl behind the creation and content of this blog. Many of you know me from my previous blog of five years, Creating A Lovely Life, and I am overjoyed to announced this site as the next step for me while I now pursue a degree in Journalism. As a person in pursuit of all things creative-- from art to writing to styling, this site is a place where you can truly "[celebrate] real lives through your inner creative". Our lives are made up of habits no matter how routine of a person we are. From brushing our teeth to the core people we choose to surround ourselves with, these consistent tendencies make up our years on this earth. Yet, mere habit is not enough for a genuine, joy-filled life. Habit with an abundance of heart is where true growth lies. Real life to the fullest is one with emotion-- with love and pain, joy and sadness, happiness and hurt. It is one with moments of confusion, of celebration, and of trust. And, in my case, I find it is one with a lot of creativity.

I hope this place is both personal yet relatable, insightful and makes you think, and authentic however inevitably imperfect. Through various posts* on creativity, I hope my words provoke more than surface level content. Not that everything has to be a metaphor, but that through creativity we learn to embrace the process of our lives and ourselves. Since all humans are creative every single day, (If you doubt this, just another reason to follow along this journey), we have much to learn from this desire to initiate beauty.

Without further ado-- hi, hello, welcome all. I'm so glad you are here.

*Posts will be up every Monday and Thursday
