Happy St. Patrick's Day, everybody! Did you all wear green? I know I did! I had on a bright green long-sleeved t with a light green tank top underneath. And this necklace:
I call it my "Lucky Girl" necklace, because I love being part Irish and all the good stuff that comes with it. The color green, four-leaf clovers, rainbows and leprechauns, and of course, Lucky Charms! ;o) Although technically I don't think you have to have a bit o' the green running through your veins to enjoy a bowl of this magically delicious cereal.
Anyway, because I love all things Irish, I made myself this necklace about three years ago, and I wear it every St. Patty's Day. I wish I could wear it more often, but I don't think I'd get away with it.
Aside from wearing green, we also celebrated with our annual visit from Lucky the Leprechaun, who left this little poem (hurriedly jotted, so excuse any imperfect rhyming!) on a green post-it on our door:
Seek it high and seek it low,
So the legend told,
At the end of every rainbow
There lies a pot of gold.
I had enough to spare this year
So I'm sharing some with you,
Five gold coins for every boy
Whose heart is good and true.
This mischevious little fellow left fifteen gold-foil chocolate coins hidden in our livingroom while the boys were eating their dinner. They had a good time hunting them down and enjoying a few for dessert.
How did you spend your St. Patrick's Day?
