Everyday Life in the Brand of Jordan Brittley
I'm really excited about the new "Everyday Life in the Brand" series! I am going to be interviewing several bloggers and small business owners so that you can have a peek into their everyday lives! We are kicking off the series with me!
THE FIRST THING I DID THIS MORNING
I sat on the bed, surrounded by our white duvet and the blue sheets that I had kicked around in the middle of the night. Normally I like to get up and get going immediately, but not today. Today I sat on the bed and talked to Isaac while he got ready. It’s going down as a favorite memory. I’m learning that I love taking my mornings slow!
Greek yogurt + strawberries + bananas + blueberries + hemp seed

ONE CHALLENGE I HAVE FACED TODAY
I didn’t think the nesting phase would ever hit me, but it is here in full force. It was hard for me to shut the door to the nursery and focus on running a business today. I just wanted to sit in that nursery with our little boy and stare at his precious little face already!

ONE ACCOMPLISHMENT FROM TODAY
Any day that a creative spill is happening is a great day here at the #jordanbrittleystudio! That’s today for me because I have operated under discipline and not rule-following! I love routines (love, love, love them)! But I am learning that it’s just as inspiring to me to break my routine and do something completely unexpected. This helps me to get things done!
Also, Style Me Pretty posted a link to one of my blog posts (5 Things I Learned from My First Style Me Pretty Feature)! So that kind of makes this blogger just a little bit happy (insert thousands of smiley faces)!!
ONE THING YOU ARE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO TODAY
The birth of our son! I can't believe that he will be here in just a few short weeks!!
ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED TODAY
Being a blogger requires an entirely different kind of creativity and focus! I have become very passionate about blogging and it’s something that I thoroughly enjoy, but I have to get “in the zone” in order to produce the best content! For me, this looks like writing about things that I am passionate about and keeping things fresh! I want this blog to be totally unique, encouraging and inspiring to my readers!
