WE STARTED WITH GRATITUDE DotDotSmile was founded on the principle of Gratitude. One night, Nicole was writing in her gratitude journal, reflecting on the things she was grateful for. As she wrote about all her blessings, she stopped and focused on her biggest blessing of all, her children, and how much joy they brought to her life. While she thought about them, she suddenly had an overpowering feeling to start a children’s clothing line. She wanted to design something that would not only bring happiness to her kids, but to children everywhere through beautiful clothing.The next day, with this exciting new business venture on her mind, she took a trip to LA in search of cute and unique textiles. She left LA with a car full of fabric and a heart full of passion! When she got home, she shared her vision with her husband, Jeff, who was beyond supportive and said he believed in her and trusted her intuition.A few weeks later, Nicole taught her eldest daughter, Lucy, how to draw a smiley face. As Nicole started drawing on a piece of paper, she explained, “Circle. Dot. Dot. Smile.” Over the next few days, Lucy would walk around the house repeating, “Dot. Dot. Smile.” Then it clicked! “That's what we’ll call it! DOTDOTSMILE!”, Jeff announced. The final piece of the puzzle was found. DotDotSmile was born!Since the beginning in 2013, gratitude has been the cornerstone of their success. To this day, Jeff is grateful for Nicole's talents, her belief in herself, her eye for fashion, and her great love for their family. Together, they are most grateful for all the customers, children, and Independent Merchandisers who believed, and continue to believe in their vision and brand.
