Hello there! I’m Emily.
I’m the creator of the Cozy Up Blog and I’m so glad you stopped by!
I’m a Minnesota girl (born and raised), happily married, an overly protective dog mom, and loving all things cozy. To me there is nothing better than cozying up with a knitted blanket, my dog snuggled beside me, and a good book in hand. If it’s snowing outside, even better. I can enjoy the view from the window and maybe later I’ll strap into my snow shoes for a quiet trail walk.
I started this blog to provide my personal advice on appreciating the simple things in life. Whether you’re looking for your next read, some suggestions for a good hiking spot, or how to slow down and just breathe, I got you.
- I’m very Scandinavian (if ya couldn’t tell)! Then add a sprinkle of Italian, German, and French.
- I own a small business on Etsy with my mom and sister. Our specialty? Gnomes!
- I’m a huge sci-fi and fantasy nerd. I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones, Marvel movies, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings.
- I’m a proud alum of Iowa State’s College of Engineering.
