This Is Me!

I realized that I started this blog and then didn’t tell you guys anything about myself! Part of what draws me into a blog is how personable, and fun the bloggers are. Of course I care about their content, but here in the blogosphere connections are built because of major personalities and support, less content. So how the heck are you guys supposed to be interested and invested in Emily by the Woods if you don’t know Emily!? So here are some facts about me:


• Other than my freshman year of college, I have only ever lived in New Hampshire.

• I am unapologetically a cat person.

• Even though I’m a cat person, I have a giant husky lab who I love more than anything.

• I work for an oil and propane company, which is WAY more fun than it sounds.

• My favorite movie is The Breakfast Club.

• Kenny Chesney is my favorite musician of all time.

• I do my best to see the sunny side of everything.

• I could happily live off coffee.

• My best friend gave my husband strict “Emily management” instructions to always have Diet Coke, Double Stuffed Oreos, and Smart Food Popcorn readily available when I’m having a crappy day. She really does just get me.

• I hate hiking. So Max calls them “trail strolls” so that I’ll agree to go on them.

• I can nap anywhere.

• It wasn’t until about a year ago that I started giving a crap about beauty products and routines. And now that I’ve drank the Kool-Aid I can’t get enough. I LOVE trying new products and experimenting. 9 time out of 10 I end up looking like a clown but whatever.

• I grew up in a hockey fam. Every single person in my family has either played, or been involved in hockey in one way or another. And I mean every single person. We even have family hockey games on Thanksgiving. It is seriously the best tradition on the planet.

• Spiders makes me cry (because they scare me. These are NOT happy tears)

• I love to bake. Once upon a time I had a dream of opening a cafe with amazing specialty brews and all the baked goods.

• I love fresh things: the skin care line, fresh fruit, freshly cleaned sheets, freshly painted nails, freshly baked snickerdoodle cookies, fresh cut flowers, you get it.

• My dad’s side of the family is from Croatia, which is #1 on my Travel the World bucket list.

• I’ve known my husband since we were 14, and I’ve had a crush on him since the day I met him.

• The first movie I ever saw in theaters was the Lion King; which is still my fave Disney movie.

• Writing has always been my passion, which a major reason I was drawn to blogging. It’s like a million little stories compiled into one happy place!

So this is just a glimpse into who I am, and I hope to get to know each of you guys who happen upon my little blogger life. Comment a fun fact about you below!
