Happy St. Patty's Day, lovelies! Most people I know have at least a little tiny bit of Irish in them somewhere and even if they don't, they become Irish for the day to celebrate anyway. I mean it's not a bad day to celebrate now, is it?

And although I don't really look it, I have a bit Irish in me myself. My mother's father is part Irish. Alright so he's also German and Dutch but who's counting, right? :)

I'd love to know, are any of you Irish? And if not, do you celebrate the day anyway?

Wishing you all good health, happiness & much luck throughout the years!

Oh and I apologize for not getting around to your blogs yesterday. St. Patty's Day also for me means the day before J's bday. So every single year, no matter how hard I try not to, I'm making the mad dash a few days before to try to get everything ready. Still not quite done yet so I'll have to fight off the drunken crowds {NYC becomes quite the place today} in order to finish up. Wish me luck! :) And I hope to be around soon to catch up. xoxo

What a delightful quote from Adrienne Cook and that green dress is sublime. I don't have Irish in my blood BUT I lived there for a couple of years - does that count??! Your pics are always superb! Happy J's birthday and hope you get there in the end, which I am sure you will. TK xx

classiq said...

I don't celebrate this day, but I'm wishing everyone who is Happy St Patrick's Day! Green is one of my favourite colors, the only stronger color in a palette of natural hues, so the emerald green dress has caught my eye. Good luck with everything you have planned for today! xoxo Ada

pretty pink tulips said...

I definitely have a bit of the Irish in me - not sure exactly how much!

Traveling today....so no celebration. But, you can count on my shamrock door wreath and irish flags on display!

Have a wonderful St Paddy's Day! And happy bday to J!!

St. Patty's day is a little different now that we have kids.:) I did enjoy some lovely irish soda bread with honey butter that a co worker made.:)

Julip Made said...

Those cupcakes are one of the few foods that look delish even though dyed with food coloring. Loving that quote. So perfect for my mindset right now!

My husband is half Irish. In fact, my married name is the most Irish name ever. Proud that our children will be quarter Irish and half Japanese.

Happy St. Patrick's day to you, Dawn! I'm sure I'm a bit Irish - the red hair, the freckles... Who knows, our great grandmas might have known each other... xoxo

Irish, German, and French...a deadly combination, to be sure.

Beautiful poem and lovely journal (I am a journal freak!)

Happy St. Patrick's and Birthday celebrations to you and yours!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I do like celebrating my heritage and what this day's true origins center around, but it just didn't work out today! So, I will have to enjoy my corned beef and cabbage some other time. i was really looking forward to that too. And I thought of doing a St. Patrick's Day post too late...haha I am not with it this year I guess!
I love your post here!
Have a great weekend! xo

Hope you enjoyed Paddies day from a very Irish follower living in Ireland!

Aspiring Kennedy said...

that quote about st patricks is great! i had been so excited to celebrate, but then we ended up being in paris. i'm not complaining or anything... just a little sad to have missed being the UK for the big day. :)
