So Many Things to Do! Photos from Washington DC

*There's a list of can't-miss places and DC things to do at the end of this post, including our favorite restaurants. Sexy Nerd and I are home from our annual trip to Washington, DC. (And have been for several weeks, obviously. What a strange time we're living.) It's such a gorgeous, walkable city. I'd love to move there one day, even if only for a year or two. We could get a place near the water in Alexandria or within steps of the zoo. Did you know you can buy a condo at the Watergate?

Spring Decorating Ideas

You may not be able to visit our home right now (you'd totally be here if not for COVID-19, right?), but here are a few photos with spring decorating ideas to enjoy.

I should probably get around to opening all of the smashed boxes tomorrow. Tile, tile, and more tile coming soon. The term 'jewel box' gets thrown around so often in the design world. This is going to be the jewel box that puts the others to shame. We'd finish more decor projects if SN and I weren't both currently working from home. Actually, make that if he wasn't working from home. I'd just be watching more TV. Have you checked out Little Fires Everywhere with Kerry Washington and Reese Wit
