Here's a fun fact for ya: it's an Irish tradition for women whose partners just keep dragging their feet to take control of the situation and propose on leap day... which happens to be this Saturday! So this weekend, grab your partners, head to one of St. Charles' gorgeous romantic locations (maybe the historic cobblestone of Main Street, or one of our delicious local restaurants), and pop the question!

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
