Casual Friday: Best of March

April 2, 2021

We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here.

Befores, afters, mood boards, plans, failures, wins. We’ve done a lot of projects, and they’re all here. 

We have a long-standing relationship with DIY, and love rolling our sleeves up and making it happen. 

Even when you don’t want to rip down a wall, you can make that space in your home better. Right now.

March was the busiest month of life and work, I think ever? We made some major decisions and announcements about moving across the country and then all the subsequent projects that came with that. The funny thing is, dozens of times a day I still get asked, “Wait?! You’re moving! You guys just finished this house!” We haven’t finished this house but yes, we’re moving. This weekend, we’ll be celebrating Easter with family and I’m just soaking in every ounce of togetherness we have left.

Closet Sources, Bedroom Sources

We put out 5-7 posts a week right here, so it’s very understandable if you missed some. But here are a few from March that were the MOST popular you wouldn’t want to miss!

The top can’t-miss posts of March

We also share a lot of content on Instagram. Like all day, every day. So it’s easy to miss things over there. Here are the most popular fashion and beauty favorites from March that we posted over there!

    What color is the trim in this picture?

    Good luck in North Carolina. We lived in Durham for a few years and loved it. One caution is to be careful and preventative about ticks. The Lone Star tick is in that area, and two of our neighbors were bit. They both developed allergies to red meat. Just make sure you have some good tick repellent. I hope the move goes seamlessly and you enjoy NC.

    Next home, I beg you, don not remodel your bathroom! As soon as you get it finished, you move. The curse of the perfect bathroom. Make do with ugly tile and you’ll stay put.

    You do drop a lot of content for us, thank you. I would like to see more of Chris wrangling chickens before you go east. That post was gold!

  5. Hope you get a chance to rest and recharge this weekend!
