The Northwest Flower and Garden Show was in Seattle in Mid-February and I was lucky enough to find time to go! I suggested, to my husband, that we should go but before I even got the whole sentence out he was already shaking his head and responding, “Maybe that’s something Diane would like to do with you!” When I told my friend Diane (she’s the one who is working on my blog with me, lives a few doors down, and kid-shared with me to save on child care) we were high fiving and already making plans.
