Inland Empire Leap Day Deals


Hi neighbors –

It’s Leap Day today!  It only comes once every four years so it’s extra special.  Everyday I wish that I had more time to see my family, catch a show with friends, clean my home office, get on my snow or surfboard, visit an art gallery…and the list goes on.  Well, we get that extra day today.

Some folks take advantage of this day to challenge themselves and accomplish something they may have not had enough time to do.  So, I’m jumping on that band wagon and committing myself this year to participate in some charitable event.  I keep telling myself I’m going to help make gift boxes for Operation Gratitude or record books for the blind (which I’ve done and it’s actually sorta fun) but I never do.  Not this year!  I have this extra day and I’m going to make it happen.  And now that I’ve declared it here I’m being held accountable.  I’m leaping into this year with hope, motivation and perseverance!
