Oh, good! You’re here!

Hi there, folks! I’m Dottie. Welcome to The Dottie Situation!

I’m a stay-at-home mama and proud resident of the San Francisco Bay Area.  I invite you to join me on my journey in mindful parenting, cruelty-free consumerism, and vegan/vegetarian living. I’m hoping that this blog will serve as a source for inspiration for those who seek to lead a more compassionate and mindful lifestyle.

Here are a few tidbits:

  • I’m 1 part of 4: There’s my rock (my husband, Robert), our beautiful boy (Lionel), and our fur baby (Linus, our doberman).
  • Robert knew I was pregnant before I did. He said I “smelled different” and suggested that I take a pregnancy test. And then we saw it: two lines!
  • My husband and I share the same, rather dark and sarcastic sense of humor, which is always sprinkled with movie lines and memes.

I hope you enjoy the blog! Thank you so much for stopping by!
