5 Things I Do on a Fall Morning

There’s nothing quite like busting out the cozy chunky knits and warm jackets! Jordan and I have been trying to do all things fall and we couldn’t be happier! The weather is cooperating {and honestly, so are the activities!}.  Some of my favorite items to wear for these fall activities are, by no surprise, from Nordstrom — they’re these booties and this knit sweater {which comes in a few other colors}, while his are these chino pants {he’s also crushing on the brown color too} and this water resistant Patagonia coat.

Nordstrom always has everything we need for both me and J so that we can conquer all fall activities while staying warm and looking stylish!

Since fall is our favorite season, I thought it would be fun to chat about all of the things we do in the morning to really take advantage of this crisp, cool, & beautiful weather! The mornings are my favorite time of day, especially during the fall.  There’s something about a hot coffee with some pumpkin spice creamer and a bite in the air to get my spirits up.

Here are the…

5 Things I Do On a Fall Morning

1. Enjoy My Coffee Outside

If it’s not too cold, throw on a light jacket and sip your coffee outdoors.  It always seems like it’s so quiet in the morning and there’s something so peaceful about drinking your coffee outside {or even in your sunroom, if you have one OR with a window open!}.

2. Water the Flowers

Strange little tidbit, but I LOVE watering my flowers in the morning before the sun is all the way out.  I’ve found myself sneaking in other small yard work tasks too, just so I can have an excuse to be outdoors.

3. Take a Walk

Such a calming activity to do right when you wake up.  Not only are there health benefits to this, but it’s just nice to get some time outdoors, enjoy the beautiful weather in the morning, and be alone with your thoughts.  It really gets you focused for the day!

4. Read a Book

If your life is anything like mine, you rarely have time to read! I specifically make time for reading by placing it into my schedule because I enjoy it so much.  I love opening a good book {especially a thriller this time of year} and enjoying it in the morning before having to work!

5. Journal

Honestly, I never understood the hype over journaling.  I had never given it a shot, but immediately wrote it off, saying it wasn’t my kind of ‘thing’.  Then, one morning, I had a lot on my mind, so I started jotting down thoughts.  One thing led to another and soon I realized that I had been well…journaling. It allows you to have a clean slate for the day and gets you ready to take on that day’s tasks. It helps me organize my thoughts in both my work life and my personal life.

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.  As always, all opinions are my own.

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.
