Happy Sunday everyone 🙂 I’m so excited to share my first Sunday Morning Coffee on And Yes To Joy! Thank you all for the kind words about the launch, name, and design. This project is really important to me, and I couldn’t be happier that everyone is enjoying it!
In case you’re new to the blog, Sunday Morning Coffee is a weekly series where I recap my week, and share some links from other blogs that I loved. I know our weeks can get pretty hectic (hence my dependence on dark roast). I love taking Sunday mornings to curl up with a hot coffee (chai with espresso preferred) and catch up on blogging.
This Week I…
>> LAUNCHED A NEW BLOG! Seriously, this has been such a crazy and eye opening process. Taking the time to think about how and why you do what you do places blogging into a new perspective. This project has got me day dreaming like never before, and I couldn’t be more excited about things to come. Rebranding and seriously mapping out my vision has been a great experience, and the reaction to the blog has been amazing!
>> Started working on design projects. I’ve never really considered taking design to the next level until a few weeks ago. One of my favorite bloggers asked me to help make her blog a home, and there was absolutely no way I’d say no. Starting the process, and seeing how sharing my design passion with others can inspire and assist has been incredible. I’ve started doodling a lot more, and not just ideas for my blogs. I’m excited to see what I’ll be working on in the future design wise.
>> Have been loving Fall. Even though it’s been between 79-84 degrees here lately, I’ve been loving that Fall is knocking on our doors again. What’s better than the leaves changing, pumpkin space lattes, and the approaching holidays. I’m really excited to slow things down, and spend more time focusing on being okay internally instead of just having it all together externally.
>> Introduced a brand new series, Learn + Love Your Blog. I’m so excited to share everything that I’ve learned about blogging and design with all of you. If you already know you have questions about branding, blogging, and design that you want answered, feel free to shoot me an email.
>> Went in on this amazing giveaway with Crystal of The Happy Type! Go Forth and Blog is a giveaway designed for bloggers ready to take that next step, and really dive into the blogosphere. The prizes include ad-space, a Starbucks giftcard, and a blog design by yours truly.

>> Kristyn at Milk and Crown has launched another project in support of a great cause. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Kristyn needs to sell 29 of her new Lucky Neclace. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Young Survivor Coalition. If you’re in the market for new neck ware, why not support a great cause and get a hand crafted piece of jewelry.
>> Jenn’s blog Hello, Brio! has become one of my favorites to have in my reader. She recently posted 5 tips on meditation for beginners, and I knew I had to share. I’ve been trying to step back into a slower, organized routine, and it can be hard to just focus on one thing when your mind is flying all over the place.
>> I found Annie’s blog The Ranting Latina over the summer, and never regretted it! This week she posted some awesome tips on how to link correctly on your blog! You’d be surprised how many bloggers make these simple mistakes when sharing links in a post.
>> Kenzie at Chasing Happy is another one of my favorite bloggers. Her posts always get me thinking and encourage me to take leaps of faith and dare to dream bigger. She recently shared a post on the art of journaling. This week, one of my goals was to start journaling every night, dedicating a few minutes for it every night. Journaling is one of my favorite outlets, and I think everyone should try it!
