Welcome to (re)launch day! Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
We are Jessica and Laurie. Two friends, 200 miles apart. Four kids, two husbands, three dogs. One SAHM with the occasional freelancing gig, one mom with a full-time career. And let’s get one thing right out in the open: this isn’t a “mommy blog” — we are lifestyle bloggers. Just as life evolves over time, so has this blog. We launched Ruthie & Rose in 2013 with the intention of having a creative space to share our favorite things. And now, more than three years later, that same intention holds true.
You’ll find some commonalities between the old blog and new. But the truth is, we discovered that we weren’t as passionate about all the things we used to share on Ruthie & Rose. After some soul searching, we’ve come up with what we believe are the true defining elements of who we are as women, mothers, friends and career women.
Our content will be thoughtfully curated yet real and authentic. We’ll share crafts and DIY projects that are easy and applicable. We’ll post recipes that are tasty and quick for your busy life but thoughtful and healthy for the whole family. We’ll share our journeys of creating functional living spaces where our families can laugh, learn, love and play, while also giving you glimpses into life’s little joys. And we’ll throw in the occasional beauty and style post, too.
Ruthie & Rose continues to be a labor of love for us. Whether you are a new reader or someone who’s stuck with us from the start, we are so thankful you are here. Our hope is that you come to Ruthie & Rose for fun and inspiration, to learn something new, interesting or helpful that you can apply to your own life or family, and that you find Ruthie & Rose to be a place of positivity, pleasure and purpose. We are thrilled to bring you our new site, and can’t wait to show you what we have in store. Thank you for joining us!
