Erin Go Bragh!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

Well, the festivities will be in full-force today. On the way to school and work this morning, I saw the tents up at the many Irish pubs in anticipation of large crowds. It's going to be sunny and 72 degrees today, plus three Kentucky basketball teams are playing in the first round of the NCAA tournament. This town is going to be crazy on St. Paddy's Day, kids.

In honor of this day, thought I'd share a couple of pics from when we visited Ireland in 1999. Such a magical place - I so hope to go back one day.
Here we are at Kylemore Abbey in County Galway. So young, so very blond. (I really overdid it on the highlights that year.)
Hubby stopping for a photo (and a stogie) with an Irish gent and his pup on the Aran Islands.

Will you be wearin' the green today and enjoying a pint or two? If you do, enjoy yourself and be safe.

Sláinte!

We had Irish teachers visiting our school some years ago. One evening when we were having a dinner together they started to sing and play and it felt like we all were sitting in an Irish pub and I really enjoyed it. I don't know anything about St. Patrick's day but it seems very fun.

I love those pictures! We went to Ireland 3 years ago and loved every minute of it. I can't wait to go back.

Hope your Paddy's Day celebrations were brilliant.

Blessings and best wishes,
Natasha.
