There is a first for everything… My first BLOG post!

First things first, let me tell you a little bit about myself! My name is Emily, I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my boyfriend Michael and my Goldendoodle Dusty. We just moved here in May this year. I grew up in Michigan and lived in the same house my entire life with my BIG family. I have three sisters and one brother along with eight of the craziest nieces and nephews I could ask for! I am the youngest of my siblings and my oldest nephew was born when I was just six years old. I love being an aunt and holidays when my entire family can be together are my favorite!

I have always been a creative person and I thank both my parents for introducing me to so many of my creative hobbies. My dad has a passion for photography and I learned mostly everything I know about photography from him. Growing up my mom was always sewing, knitting or crafting the latest trend and I loved helping her. A creative mind led me to my career as a hairdresser! I love to inspire people and make them feel beautiful. 

My current hobbies include photography, cooking, traveling, making crafts, training my doodle Dusty and now BLOGGING! I decided to start this blog after we moved. I have always want to be a blogger but never really knew what I would write about. After moving I realized that I was experiencing so many new things for the first time and I wanted to share my stories! 

Most of the things I enjoy doing are things Dusty can do with me. So that is what A Doodle Dose is all about. The adventures and first time experiences I have with Dusty in our new city, Charlotte!

Here are a few photos from of our favorite “Firsts” so far this year!

  1. Yay for your first post along with many other firsts. Welcomes to blogging!

  2. I hope you guys enjoyed the mountains and ocean. They are the best part of NC. Grandfather mountain is especially fun! We love to hike with our brittany spaniel when we can! I am also new to blogging so it's great to meet someone else who is too! Here's to blogging for years to come!

    1. We loved the Mountains! Looking forward to going again when the leaves change colors! :) I grew up with two brittany spaniels, they are such great dogs! Happy to meet a fellow newbie!
