Welcome y’all!

Thanks for stopping by my little ‘ole blog! I thought I would do an introductory post to help you get to know a little more about me and my life.

Here’s me, Emily Ann Cole, the voice behind I Do Declare Blog.

imageI’m a southern girl through and through living in Little Rock, Arkansas (Go Hogs!).

I love dressing up, anything pink and glittery, J. Crew, monograms, chai tea lattes, big hair, salt and vinegar chips, fresh flowers, traveling, lace and leopard print, reading, shopping, sushi, bubble baths, pearls, the beach, and shoes with bows! I am a definite girly-girl, but I also love being outside, hiking, playing sports, (I was the girl playing basketball with a pink ribbon in her ponytail) and watching Razorback games.


I attended a small private school, Harding University, and that is where I met my cute hubby. We married October 6th, 2012. We are already old married people! While getting married so young (we were only 20!) can definitely have it’s challenges, it sure does make life fun and full of laughter.



Anthony and I are both in our senior year of college and he is studying pre-med with hopes to attend medical school. I am studying speech pathology, and although I love this field, I have dreams to one day to become a boutique owner or an event planner of some sort. Did I mention I am slightly obsessed with weddings and planning parties?! Haha



I am very close to my family and it’s a blessing getting to see them all so much! I am also a first-time aunt to the cutest girl around town and we all love her so! Update: I am also now an aunt to the cutest little boy EVER!


I wanted to start I Do Declare Blog as a creative outlet to talk about fashion, beauty, home decor, life as a young newlywed, and anything else in between! Join along with me in my journey.

Thanks so very much for stopping by!

Lots of love,
