Welcome to {R&R} at home!



I am so excited to start this journey and I suppose the best way to kick things off is with a short intro to all things 'R&R'.

I'm sure I am not the first person who found themselves in a slight state of panic when it came to deciding what to name their blog (how can something so simple be so overwhelming?), but I decided to keep things simple. 'R&R' stands for Ryan (my husband) and Rebecca (that's me!). Since this blog will predominantly revolve around our home projects, it seemed only fitting as my title (and what a cute pun)!

I want to point out that I am not an expert in home decorating. I actually have a degree in Sociology and am currently working in the HR field. Home decorating and DIY are, at most, a hobby of mine and my hope is that this blog will help take my passion one step further. 

I have been decorating rooms since I can remember. I distinctly recall watching movies and TV as a kid, taking mental notes of the set decor and trying to recreate it in my own room. I was always begging my mom for a new bed set (which was always a new 'bed in a bed') and I can't even count the number of times I rearranged my bedroom furniture before graduating high school. Moving to college was a whole other story. My dorm room was nothing to blog about and probably wouldn't make anyone's board on Pinterest, but it was really my first taste of artistic freedom (and it was outrageous). Since then, I have lived in five apartments, bought two homes and spent countless hours engulfed in HGTV and pinning to my hearts content. I'd like to think I have come a long way.

I am not sure what my first actual home post will be about, but my current project is replacing the hardware in our (tiny) kitchen. I have spent hours researching and have nothing to show for it yet. Until then... 

Note: Bear with me as I customize this page :)
