Luck O' the IRISH...

St. Patrick's Day – Celebrating the Green
St. Patrick is believed to have driven the snakes from Ireland. Once a pagan himself, St. Patrick is one of Christianity's most widely known figures.

The modern secular holiday is based on the original Christian saint's feast day also thought to be the date of the saint's death. In 1737, Irish immigrants to the United States began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City in 1766.

Today, the tradition continues with people from all walks and heritages by wearing green, eating Irish food, and attending parades. St. Patrick's Day is bursting with folklore; from the shamrock to the leprechaun and to pinching those that are not wearing green.

We had such beautiful weather this past weekend and now, this morning white stuff on the ground again! Just a dusting, but we did get spoiled over the weekend. We all knew it was coming....but we all secretly "hoped" it would pass us by.
Just working away on a little dollie and was enjoying the Spring like weather.

Here's wishing you a Happy St. Patty's Day. Now I hope you remembered to where something GREEN or you might just get PINCHED! Have great day and remember to say something nice to someone that...would least expect it from you. Toodles, ~Tonya

Happy St. Patrick's Day, ma'am!

Isn't it wonderful to see Mother Nature waking up from her icy slumber? We were downtown on Friday for our monthly "Date Night" and could see the tulip flowers starting to poke through the soil. YEE HAW! ;) I'm SO happy to welcome Spring.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Bright Blessings,
Dana
