Oh hey! I’m Sydney Nordquist
I started this blog after having my first kid, Hayes, in June 2018. Motherhood seemed to instantly trump Sydney-hood and I lost myself a bit. After some experimenting I realized the best way to take care of myself was to make it a morning habit—that way it’s too early to have anything else get in the way 🙂 So here we are talking about motherhood, mornings, and occasionally what I eat and wear.
Welcome! I hope you’ll stick around and hang out a bit.
More about me.
I often name inanimate objects. My car’s name is Brewski “Bruce” and my road bike is Jessie (because I’m Jessie’s girl, duh).
My husband and I met through mutual friends at our local run camp, it was not love at first sight.
I played collegiate volleyball at The University of Virginia (wahoowa!) and Charlottesville is still one of my favorite places in the entire world.
My dog has more Instagram followers than I do (@milesoberlin), but he’s super handsome so I understand why.
I believe smiles are contagious and most anything can be solved after a walk in fresh air.
Before switching to Marketing + Management, I was planning on getting my Master’s degree in dietetics.
I am a people person but feel incredibly recharged after spending time alone, even if it’s just a few hours at a coffee shop reading.
Bitter drinks are my favorite. IPAs, gin + tonics and grapefruit juice.
I could kiss whoever at American Eagle decided to make extra long jeans.
