This leap day finds me in a sunny place where there are things like palm trees and cactus and swimming pools. Wish you were here but since you’re not I’m hoping you are someplace awesome too.

I hope you’re near Joshua Tree! If you are, and you’re so inclined, take the hike to the for real desert oasis/spring. It is completely, for reals, the neatest thing.

Elizabeth – I am indeed near Joshua Tree and if we have time we will take that hike, thanks for the recommendation!

Ooh, did you finally make it out to Hicksville Trailer Palace?! My husband and I went to Hicksville based on your mention of it a while back… we had the best time.

Ok — so I’m not here to post about Leap Day, but since it is Leap Day — YEA!! I love Leap Day! The reason I’m here is because I came across a photo of your bacon cups, which I think are FANTABULOUS, and I shared it on FB, not knowing where it came from and then a Friend of mine put your link on the comments, so now I know how to make this thing I am drooling over. I am so happy on this Leap Day to find your blog — I might leap on over to the kitchen and start making bacon cups.

I’ve actually gone quite the opposite direction, in snowy North Dakota FROM the desert, silly me… Have fun!

Enjoy it! And bring some sunshine to the PNW when you return!

I know I am late to the party, but I wanted to let you know that I got married on Leap Day this year. It was overcast and kind of rainy but we wouldn’t have changed a thing :)
