It’s Leap Year today. According to folk legend, “In the English speaking world, it is a tradition that women may propose marriage only on leap years” (Wikipedia).
As a young girl, my school had two Sadie Hawkins dances during a leap year, one around Feb. 29 and again on Sadie Hawkins Day in November. Although we weren’t proposing marriage, this is when tradition held that we invited a boy to accompany us to the dance. It always terrified me; I was terribly shy.
Look at this great composition book cover the ever-so fabulous Calamity Kim made for me.
She put so much thought into each and every detail. Just the act of writing in this book is like a celebration of words and life. And when I run out of pages, I can merely insert a new blank book—love that!
Have a joyous weekend celebrating the beginning of March and the promise of Spring!
