It is the happiest of Fridays Everyone!
This weekend is St. Patrick's Day, my official favorite holiday! I grew up in a family where our Irish heritage was a huge part of our lives. I love Irish music, Irish food, anything and everything that has to do with this holiday puts a smile on my face. And you might be asking did we name our son Patrick after a famous drinking holiday?
Well, the answer is yes and no. Patrick was the ONLY baby boy name my husband liked after going through about 300 names. Remarkable there also is not one Patrick in either of our insanely large Irish Catholic families, can you believe it? So Patrick became Patrick!
So this weekend we will head to our favorite Irish pub (where my husband and I met, had our rehearsal dinner and my son's christening) for music, Irish dancing and fabulous friends and food. Yes, I will be those people with a baby in a bar, don't judge I turned out just fine and I was delivering my parents drinks by the time I was five! Only on St. Paddy's of course!
So here is an Irish blessing for each of you!
May you enjoy the four greatest blessings
Honest work to occupy you.
A hearty appetite to sustain you.
- A good woman to love you.
- And a wink from the God above.
Happy St. Patrick's Day from our lucky charm!
