Welcome to my tiny little corner of the blogosphere! My name is Dorothy, but I also go by Dot or Dotdot. I am a Virginia native, a Louisiana dweller, and a lover of literature, the mountains, and the simple joys in life. In my spare time, when I am not wrangling my children and trying to keep the house under control as a stay at home mom, I might enjoy a glass of red wine, some good reading, keeping after our homestead, or just snuggling up with my husband to a good show. This little online space is unashamedly, first and foremost, a place for me to capture little memories of my family’s lives, as well as reflect on my own life.
I am married to my college sweetheart, Ross. We met our freshman year and have been in love ever since. He is the most fascinatingly complex, passionate person, I know. He helps me to see the beauty in living and loving, and I cannot imagine life without him.
We have a three year old daughter, Lúthien Marie. Her sweetness and sincerity is inspiring. She loves the company of her brother and is a little mother to both her siblings. She is a beautiful, introverted soul, who loves to be outside, dance, sing, and read books.
Rainer is 1.5 years old, my extroverted child, and incredibly different from his sister. He is adventurous, impulsive, into everything, and keeps me chasing after him all day. Yet all the same, he is incredibly sweet and lovable.
Ruth was born into this world just this past New Year’s Eve. She is darling, and we love her oh so much.
Together we live in Southeast Louisiana, in the incredible hometown of my husband with our French Brittany, Brego. Here the sun is hot, the food is good, and the people are family.
If you happen to follow along in my simple updates, reflections, and tangents, please please say hello!
