Welcome May Adventures

Wow, is April really over? This past month was so good to me and it went by incredibly fast. I started April by introducing a fun photo challenge, 100 Happy Days! If you are wondering what the heck I am talking about you can read all about it here, or follow me on Instagram to see what makes me happy everyday!

So far, I am 30 days into the challenge and still loving it. It's fun thinking of what photo I want to share and really reminds me of everything that made me smile throughout the day! Plus I enjoyed looking back and seeing all of the happy photos, most of mine include Dusty, I just love my doodle bear!

Not only did I begin an awesome photo challenge in April but I also started a new feature on A Doodle Dose called, 5 Things. I talked all about photography,


and living with my boyfriend.

5 Things: I Learned About Living With My Boyfriend turned out to be my most popular post EVER! YAY! It was so great to receive such positive feedback from all of my readers. You guys are awesome!

Of course my blog wouldn't be called A Doodle Dose unless I featured my favorite Goldendoodle, Dusty. I had so much fun writing my Dog Easter Egg Hunt post.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you know I was also very busy in April moving into a new apartment. I have been getting so many requests to share pictures of our new place, but don't worry, photos are coming soon along with a few DIY home projects. :)
Now it's time to welcome May adventures! May is all about getting settled into our new home and exploring our new neighborhood, plus now that the weather is getting warmer I am happy to enjoy more outdoor fun. I look forward to sharing all of my adventures with you, but I would love to hear what you think. Did you enjoy my 5 Things feature? Would you like more? Also would you be interested in more features with Dusty, like dog tricks and training techniques? I am happy to hear all of your requests and ideas. Leave a comment or email me personally!

  1. Love reading your blog! We for real need to plan a day where I come visit you in Charlotte. :) Things have been CRAZY BUSY here. Perhaps June? We should nail down a weekend before we all get super busy.


  2. Hi Emily :) I'm also taking Blog Life and trying to connect with some of the students since we don't have a forum or something like that! I've also been doing #100happydays, tomorrow will be my 6th week, it's super fun right?
    good luck with growing your blog :)

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog! Yes I am a few weeks into #100happydays and I just love it! :)

  3. Hi Emily! I love your blog! So much so that I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award. It’s a great way for new bloggers to get recognition and get to know the rest of the community. Please visit my blog at for more details. Congrats!

    1. Thank you so much Kristen! I am so excited! :)

  4. Hope you guys get settled into your new place soon. We're gearing up for a move and also are enjoying the warmer temps here. Hopefully, the weather will stay nice and it won't rain as much as it did last summer.

    1. Yes last summer was a bit rainy! Good luck with your move, it is a lot of work! ;)
