Oh hey! I’m Sydney Nordquist aka ‘syd.nord’
I’m the founder and author of sydnord.com, where I love to share the ins and outs of my glass half full journey through motherhood. My goal is for this site to brighten your day and remind you that YOU CAN. I want to empower women to ‘own your joy‘ through my actionable productivity and self care practices and overall good vibes. Besides this little slice of the Internet, I’m a full-time Marketing Director at Maestro, mother, and wife.
More about me.
I believe smiles are contagious and most anything can be solved after a walk in fresh air.
According to Strength Finders my top five strengths are: learner, positivity, competition, arranger, and futuristic.
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.
My husband and I have a goal to travel to all 50 states together, we’re about a quarter of the way there.
Before switching to Marketing, 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.
Woah, look at us when we were babies taking our engagement photos!
