This episode was inspired by a Chris Loves Julia Insta Story. They just moved and were asking followers what they thought made a new place feel homey.
The lyric Donnie sings at the beginning is from a song called “Home, Sweet Home.”
One of the first things I do when I move into a new apartment is set up my space. I bought this bed frame when I first moved to New York, and putting it in a new apartment instantly made the space feel like mine.
One of Donnie’s favorite things to do in a new space is give everything a home, including his books.
