Spring is in the air…or at least I hope it is after all this crazy weather. This time of year is the perfect time for thinking about what to do to your home, whether it’s new or making your home even better. I won’t even begin to give you the list of all the things I’m holding on to for my “Spring To-Do” list, but if yours is anything like mine, you have pages of ideas you’d like to see happen. So turn that list into reality and get going with a little help from the Plano New Home & Remodeling Show, March 21 & 22 at the Plano Centre.
