I’m so excited! The Phoenix Home and Garden Expo is coming up! If you know me, you know this is one of my favorite events of the entire year. I love all the vendors, and I always come home with new outdoor patio design ideas. I love the creative energy of the whole thing. Last year, there was a great booth set up featuring man-made ponds. I would just love to have a koi pond in my backyard. It would be even better with a waterfall! I wasn’t able to convince my husband that we needed one, but I think if I keep asking, he’ll give in. After all, I gave in when he wanted to 64-inch TV instead of the 56-inch! I always look forward to meeting other landscape design enthusiasts, and it’s a great event to get new ideas if you are feeling bored with your yard. The vendors are so knowledgeable, and even if you aren’t ready to purchase right then and there, they are great to keep in contact with in case you change your mind later on. I just can’t wait for next month. I wonder if I’ll be able to drag my dear husband into it with me this time around? Last year, he had an “emergency work meeting” come up at the last minute,. That wasn’t suspicious at all!
