Start Here

Welcome. My name is Serena. I’m a work outside the home mama to Violet (2 years old) and Otter (my baby)–no, that’s not their real names. Wife to Tig and wonderful stay at home (and also working really hard) dad.  Tiny Asteroid is about our family and home. It’s about finding butterscotch clouds in our coffee and diamonds on the soles of our shoes.

Why the name

The name Tiny Asteroid refers to asteroid B-612, home of the little prince in Antoine St. Exupery’s classic book.

What is this all about?

This site is dedicated to Violet and Otter. It is about our family and our home, and my desire to give them a magical childhood.

I collect memories the way a little girl collects seashells. In another time and place, my children may inherit a leather bound book of beautifully calligraphed letters–in violet and emerald inks. Perhaps, in today’s world, they will get a memoir in pictures and in words resting on a cloud.
