In 2007 I began this journey called blogging. Initially, I wanted a way to easily share pictures and stories with family and friends who live far away from us. Before I knew it, blogging became a new hobby. Not only did I enjoy journaling my life, but I enjoyed reading about others. As it turns out, I am not alone in the joys and struggles I experience daily. What a relief!
My blog, I Wish I Was in Dixie, refers to where I live (not Tennessee) and my desire to stay here FOREVER. The title came to me one morning while I was changing a diaper (probably). This is now where the Dotson family, but mostly me, resides on the internet.
While here, you will read about:
Me, Amy. I am a thirty-something woman, wife, mother, dreamer and hopeful writer. This blog is an eccentric mix of my interests, my favorite products and websites, family pictures, my weight-loss, my spirituality and my journey in this thing called life.
My hubby, Matt. Also thirty-something, my best-friend, my husband, Mattie’s father, DREAMER, professional graphic designer (Powerhouse Graphic Design), and entrepreneur. Almost daily he comes home with a new business idea. He’s genius. He also plays semi professional football with the St. George Rebels.
My daughter, Mattie. She is a busy, beautiful, bright, delightful child with a zest for life I hope to learn from.
My foster daughter (my cousin’s child), Zoe. What a joyful addition this child is. Our time with her is unknown as of yet, but we will cherish all that we have. Zoe is kind, energetic, thoughtful, fearless, and loving. My love for her grows daily. I am not allowed to post pictures of her for now. Believe me when I say she is beautiful.
You will also read about any other topic I choose to write about. It varies daily.
I like reading, cooking, playing games on my computer (in moderation, of course), the color red (swoon) and most things “refreshing” and “delicious” (aren’t those great words?!).
I don’t like early mornings (something I’m working on), exercising (also working on), foul language, and stinky cheese.
I hope you enjoy your time here! Leave your feedback (ie. comments)! I would love to get to know more about you.
