Happy St. Paddy's Day!

I don't know about ya'll, but I love St. Paddy's Day!! My family is Irish on my mom's side, so we love anything to do with Erin (Ireland). Tonight we'll celebrate with irish music, my grandpa Hart's irish fried potatoes, irish soda bread and other goodies. It's a chance to enjoy our Irish roots smiley I also love to dress up for St. Paddy's Day. I wore my Irish Princess tiara and sash, my shamrock pin and bracelets, irish socks and my Everyone Loves An Irish Girl t-shirt. I wish we celebrated more irish holidays!! If you're not irish, I hope you still had fun doing things like "the wearin' o' the green" (to avoid getting pinched) and at least pretending to be irish! If you've never heard any irish music, I suggest songs like "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling", "Danny Boy" and my grandpa's favorite "I'll Take You Home again, Kathleen". If you like instrumentals that will make you get up and dance an irish jig, might I suggest "The Irish Washerwoman" cool Here's an irish blessing for all my friends:

Like the warmth of the sun
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish
shine bright on your way.
