Historically, I always think of the 29th of February as being a bit of a bonus, magical day. A day at the top of the Faraway Tree, where tea and cake is free, and we all wear spangly jumpsuits and ride unicorns through a forest made of rainbows. IT'S A DAY THAT IS NOT NORMALLY HERE. And then it is, and we are in it. I can't get my head around it.
On that note, I'd like to think if I was going to propose today, it would look a little bit like this:

Seriously though, I dare you to watch it all the way to the end without squirming.
Of course today is magical for another reason too - my friend Ellie was born on the 29th of February approximately twelvety-two years ago. Magic baby. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EL xxxx You get an extra special one this year!
Also, if you missed the Pen Do write-up on Any Other Wedding yesterday, check it here. Anna is just too lovely for words, I couldn't have described you all better. The wickedly funny Laura has also very accurately described the fear, joy and Blind-Date-ness of it all here, and the brilliant Bex is doing a two-parter (of course!) which starts today. Read all about it indeed - this makes me wish all my friends blogged. If you missed this one, you HAVE to come next time.
