Welcome to Refuge & Rome. Before we get started let me tell you a little bit about why I am starting this blog. I, like my computer, have a lot of tabs open in my head at any given time. My interests cannot be confined in a box and they are as wide and vast as the rolling plains of Oklahoma. They can change as often as the weather changes around here. If you are unfamiliar with what the weather is like in Oklahoma, please take the time to Google it. In a word: Tigernado. It’s as wild as Britney Spears in 2007.
Anyway, this blog will serve as a place to share some of my projects and experiences with you. Let me be honest and up front, I am not a master woodworker, designer, chef, (insert title hear), etc. I am passionate about helping people and have discovered that helping people is my strength and this is just one way that I am trying to lean in to that strength.
Why Refuge and Rome? I consider my home my Refuge. It is my place to decompress and get away from it all. Rome is my Grandfather’s and my father’s middle name. It has been and will always be one of my favorite names of all time. In this blog, I am using Rome more to speak about traveling and experiences. (Yes, I know, Rome is a city and roam is referring to actual travel. Just go with it. )
