This March marks two years since Matthew and I moved into our current home. Each year has brought it’s share of both big and small projects, despite not buying a “fixer upper house.” Year One was having a fence installed, both to keep puppies in and deer out.
Year Two was having a new roof put on because, well, you need one of those. Usually if I spend that much money on anything I like to be able to drive it or wear it, but Matthew is right that staying dry and warm is a good thing, too!
This year’s project? Nursery preparations, of course! And every year, the Great Big Home and Garden Show has proven to be a god-send as we undertake these projects.
From February 8-16, the I-X Center will be filled with exhibitors ready to inspire and help complete any home project, from the big to the small.
There is the Garden Showcase, which is my favorite part to walk through when it’s cold and snowy outside. This year’s theme is international, exotic locations and there will be local restaurant tastings incorporated in the Showcase on February 10 and 11.
There are also local and national celebrity guests on both the Main Stage and the Loretta Paganini Cooking Stage.
