La Dolce Vita was founded in the July of 2007 as a summer respite from Paloma's former career as a high school Spanish teacher. Paloma lives in Houston with her husband Fabian and their adorable dog, Tate.
My dog, Tate gets a lot of love around here. He is the resident cutie at La Dolce Vita and he keeps me company while I spend my days blogging. We adopted Tate when he was just a puppy in May of 2009. He is a Cockapoo, or Cocker Spaniel / Poodle mix. He's smart as a whip and is as affectionate as can be.
