Welcome to R&R


You’re here because you deserve a little R&R. Doesn’t everyone? First and foremost, thanks to all of you for your patience, support and excitement as we [finally] made this blog a reality. Words can’t begin to describe how excited we are to introduce this sweet and sassy little space to the world.

Who are R&R? We’re two friends with a passion for DIY, home décor, fashion trends, great finds, and the wonderful journeys of life and love. Ruthie is a southern wife and momma who’s constantly learning to manage supper, sippy cups and a social life. Rose is a newlywed with a mild obsession for baubles, bows and champagne cocktails.

Where did the inspiration for R&R come from? A couple of months ago in casual lunch conversation, we got to chatting about where we see ourselves in the next few years. We both have full-time careers in marketing and absolutely love what we do. But truth be told, we want more. Like most modern-day working women, we have big hopes and big dreams for the future and wanted a place where we can share our passions.

What can you expect to find here? Whether it’s sharing one of mom’s recipes or styling vintage finds using new trends, we hope you will be inspired by our twist on old favorites. From sparkly ensembles complete with big bows and polka dots to the adventures of raising a toddler, being a newlywed and decorating a home while staying on a budget, we hope to fill your feed with happy, beautiful moments and lots of laughs along the way. And with growing families of our own, we find great happiness in remembering our roots. So you can expect a lot of sweet southern hospitality around these parts.

Just as our lives change and grow, so will this little place. We don’t know what the future has in store for R&R but we are certain that this will be a fun, heartwarming journey and we are so thankful you are joining us for the ride.

Cheers to a little R&R in your life… After all, you deserve it!
