Happy Leap Year 2012In: celestina marie design, leap year, new hand painted treasures 11:24:00 AM By: Celestina Marie
Ever wonder why we add on an extra day every 4 years and call it leap year? It all has to do with science really. You see the days do not exactly divide up to complete a year. It all relates to the time it takes for the earth to travel around the sun. We actually end up with 1/4 of a day each year, so when we add this quarter of a day every 4 years we get the extra day called leap year. If we did not do this, our springtimes would arrive at different times of the year pushing it up as late as June.
There are 5 million people who also celebrate their birthdays on the 29th called, Leapers. This nearly happened to me, but I arrived to this world on the 28th of February instead.
And, speaking of birthdays, I want to send out a heartfelt thank you to my friends and family for the beautiful cards, calls, gifts, flowers, emails, e-cards and surprises. You made my day very special and blessed me more then you know. It was a special day with beautiful weather and time spent with my two favorite guys.
Today it is back to reality and my studio is calling me to grab those brushes and start creating. Lots of treasures are based and ready to go~~~
New items are arriving to fill the shelves in my boutique.
Hope you enjoy a last and extra day in February and leap right into March with inspiration and many blessings.
See you again soon.
XO Celestina Marie
