Happy Leap Day ~ A Marriage Proposal???

Hello everyone,
Happy Leap Day!
Now here is a Leap Day Fun Fact that is new to me ~
According to Irish tradition, February 29 is a special day set aside 
where women may ask for a man’s hand in marriage!
Had I known this I may have lined up some prospects!!  ;~)

Here are a few fun vintage postcards I found at


Guess I will have to wait another 4 years!

Here is a fun post you can find on AttaGirls Blog
about Leap Year's Most Eligible Bachelors
from a newspaper article from 1888
Stop by and see which one you would have chosen!

Hope you enjoyed these!
Love,
Beverly

  4. Wedding proposals are one of the best events in a girl's life. It is a real tear-jerker for a lot of women. :)
