The Humans


Hi! We are Heath and Kelsey, two young adults learning how to live life and blogging about the process.

The blog is named after our little East Austin home we’ve dubbed the doodle house in honor of the rambunctious mutts who inhabit it. We live in Austin, we work in Austin, and now we BLOG in Austin. The capital of Texas is rich in live music, spectacular events, diverse scenery and amazing people. In other words, wonderfully blogable. While posts may take on various forms from time-to-time, for the most part this blog will serve to share the more exciting bits of life for those dwelling in the doodle house. We drink and dine, garden and go out, take photos and take trips. And it’s our pleasure and delight to share those adventures and antics with the world wide web.

    I’ve never looked in on a family before…Found your blog by accident looking up the key words, “doodle house” thinking I’d heard that as a housewares store name. It’s enjoyable to see how you’re experiencing life and truly participating in making things happen for yourselves. I’m from Boerne, TX. Having studied at UT in the mid-70s, I fell in love with the town a long time ago. Love the pic you’ve collected regarding home decor and ideas. (I agree: fresh eggs are the best) Best wishes to all in your household.

    Hi! I recently discovered your blog and have been enjoying exploring it. My husband and I live in Charlotte, NC and are exploring and living live in our new town home together. I decided to start a blog about it recently and have been searching for some inspiration.

    My brother and sister-in-law lived in Austin and I LOVED visiting them prior to them moving to Charlotte a little over a year ago. Its a great place! Looking forward to reading more and following you in the future! Feel free to pop over to my meager beginnings A Refined Renovation sometime- I’d love some feed back!
