Saint Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day on March 17!

"Ireland: It's the one place on earth that heaven has kissed, with melody, mirth, and meadow and mist." -Irish proverb

      A few things Irish to get us celebrating:

 Watch Kissing the Blarney Stone in Blarney Castle, 
 County Cork

This is fairly long. If you want to, you can skip the history and go straight to the 11-minute mark.
But there are some beautiful shots along the way. And bonus: the guy speaks with an Irish accent!

Check out the shiny shamrocks, pots of gold, and rainbows by Natalie! 
She is the queen of treats!

My sister sent me a postcard from Ireland. This was the stamp. It's pretty enough for a pillow, don't you think?

One day I want to send a postcard from Ireland. Definitely on my Wish List. 
But in the meantime, I'll whip up some Irish Mashed Potatoes (with cabbage) and our family's version of this Irish Trifle. Yum!

                           Have yourself a fun-filled St. Patty's Day!

                                   Remember to check the end of the  rainbow!
                       (And be sure to pinch someone before they pinch you!)
