Welcome! I’m Catherine! I’m a Midwest farmer’s daughter living in the Mid-Atlantic with a style that’s all Southern and a heart New York just won’t seem to give back. I married my North Carolina man on a snowy day in February, and we live in our little Virginia apartment with our crazy goldendoodle, Pippa.

Here’s what you missed before we got here. I grew up in Southeast Missouri, went to college in St. Louis, spent a glorious post-graduation fall in Paris, helped create theater in New York, worked on Music Row in Nashville, and spent a sweet summer in Ohio. The past decade has been an ever-changing adventure, but I am graciously anchored by an eternally changeless God (James 1:17).

I created this blog to document our memories and to encourage me to focus on gratitude. I believe that any occasion can be a special occasion, and I live to celebrate them. My love language is quality time, and as crazy as it may sound, I hope this blog will remind me to spend more time in genuine conversation than I do on my computer.  I also hope this space will bring light through its focus on travel, style, hospitality, beautiful interiors, relationships, the arts, and progress toward purpose.

I would love to collaborate with you! To reach out about post collaborations, brand partnerships, sponsored posts, or media trips, please email me at catherine@classiccatherine.com.

“…whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
