About Me

Hi, I'm Rebecca. I guess you could call this my little piece of the web right here. My blog is called "xoxo rebecca" .... yup, that's me! But don't get me wrong, I'm not really that full of myself. The name just seemed to fall into place and the rest is history.

1. I am a digital cartographer, graphic designer, illustrator, and photographer. I graduated from Ringling School of Art & Design with a BFA in Illustration and Full Sail University with a BS in Graphic Design. To see some of the little things I have been doing, check out my Behance page.

2. I have three children. Natalya, Reggie Jr, and Larissa

3. We named our first daughter after a video game. Yes, we are those people LOL curious as to what game? Check out the post here.

4. I was born on March 21st. 3-2-1 {I think that has always been kind of cool}.

5. I'm 5'6" making me the shortest person in my family. My mom nicknamed me "Christmas Elf" because I'm so short compared to everyone else.

6. My youngest was born at 4:02am in room 402.

7. When I was pregnant with my middle child, I needed to have my appendix removed during the last few weeks of pregnancy. Right after my baby was born, he needed to have his appendix removed as well.

8. I have never tried coffee in my life. Not even anything coffee-flavored.

9. I am a very superstitious person when it comes to numbers. I have this weird thing when it comes to even and odd numbers together. I know, I'm totally weird but you can read about what I mean here.

10. I grew up in Germany. No, I am not German. I get asked that a lot. But my mom and dad were both in the Army and we were stationed in Germany through almost my entire childhood during the Gulf War.

11. When I was 10 years old, I spent one summer collecting ladybugs and released them in my bedroom all at once. I had an infestation and thought it was so super cool. My mom, however, did not.

12. My brother and I were named after the characters Tom Sawyer and Rebecca Thatcher in the series written by Mark Twain.

13. I have a phobia of pockets. I cannot put my hands in pants pockets. I even tend to buy jeans with no pockets because I get freaked out if my hand goes near them.

14. I also can't have my food touching. So that usually means I need a separate plate for every food item I am eating for that meal.

15. I have an unhealthy obsession with four things :: Coach bags, Marie Antoinette, The Tudors, and candles.

16. I was in a sorority in college. I'm a Sigma Sigma Sigma.

17. My favorite color is pink. And anything glittery!

18. I met my husband at a college fraternity party during a hurricane. Here's a little sneak peek at our wedding.

19. The one place I want to visit in the entire world is Bora Bora.

20. I'm addicted to slipper socks and hot chocolate.

21. My favorite animal is a penguin. I've been in love with penguins since I was a baby.

22. My first celebrity crush was Kevin Costner.

23. My husband and I want to start our own bakery one day.

24. I love silence. When I have any "me" time, I refuse to have the tv on, no music, no noise at all. Just sit in complete silence. Even driving in the car, I love having it absolutely quiet!

25. I sleep with my face completely covered up. I have to have my face fully under the covers even when it's 100 degrees out.
