Did you know that February is American Heart Month (not just because of Valentine’s)? The month is meant to raise awareness about heart health and prevent heart disease. There are a lot of ways you can become involved and help other women fight the #1 killer. Sign up for HeartFest in June, plan to support the Heart Ball in early March, following along on Facebook to see what you can do all year long, or just take your female friends on a walk instead of a coffee (walking is a heart-healthy exercise).

Expos. My kids have been dragged along to several different expos over time. Most of the time they didn’t really feel like this was great fun for them (but it was fun for me and the kids are usually really discounted or free). There are two expos this weekend (Feb 22-23):

Plus, if you don’t have your passport yet – this is the place to get it! Admission is $11.
- Colorado Garden and Home Show. When I’m stuck in my house, thanks to snow, I think of all the house projects I want to do – and my Pinterest boards fill up. But there is another way (besides wandering the aisles at Home Depot and Lowe’s) the Colorado Garden and Home show marches into town February 22-March 1. Tickets are on sale now.
