My name is Mary Catherine and I'm a yoga teacher, artist + designer, consultant, blogger, podcaster, + mom living and working on Cape Cod.
Starr Struck is a lifestyle blog focused on my adventures in leading an active + yogic lifestyle, pursuing my entrepreneurial passions, navigating being a new mom, and making as much time as possible to enjoy the simple things in life.
My goal is to inspire *YOU* to create a bit more space in your own life in order to make time to do whatever it is that nurtures you most. Because what's left in life if we don't pursue what we love?
A few more details about me:
I'm originally from from Atlanta, GA, but am now living on the Cape after spending time in Danville, Kentucky (where I attended the amazing Centre College), New York City (I miss you, dear East Village walk-up!), and Washington, DC.
I currently spend most of my time doing one of the following activities: practicing yoga, teaching yoga, taking care of my sweet baby girl, Charlie Mae, walking my dog-child, Sayde, eating fruit, painting and/or doing design work, working with clients, laughing with my my hubby, Ben, or blogging.
Although it feels like just yesterday, it's now been over 6.5 years since I took the plunge and quit my "full-time job" to focus on teaching yoga, blogging, consulting, and art. It's been such an amazing adventure!
Thank you for joining me on my journey as I continue to learn how to find balance in my busy but inspiration-filled daily life :)
