Slainte Friends!!!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!!

Last night, as I helped my 7 year old daughter build her "Leprechaun Trap" for her school project, which she assures me she will definitely catch one with, I got a little curious as to all the Irish Traditions of St. Patrick's Day. Although I am not a lot Irish, I am a Heinz 57 mix, so I am sure there is some Irish in there somewhere, I LOVE St. Patrick's Day! You get to wear Green, Drink Green Beer, Eat Great food, try to catch a Leprechaun and I am always hopeful on St. Pat's day...and did I mention drink green beer?? :)

So, What does everyone do on St. Patrick's Day? Well, green beer sounds good to me...but there are parades, and the best part...THE FOOD!! Here are a couple of Traditional Irish recipes I found:

I was feeling very festive this year and I made a batch of Green Clover & Aloe candles!! :) They smell WONDERFUL...not really what I expected but still wonderful!! I am going to burn one today as my own new tradition on St. Paddy's day!

So, on this greenish kinda day I wish all my wonderful followers, friends, & customers a very blessed day, I hope you all see green (in a good way)!!!

I will leave you with a few Irish sayings & blessings!

♥In Heaven there is no beer, that is why we drink it here.

♥May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

♥An old Irish recipe for longevity: Leave the table hungry. Leave the bed sleepy. Leave the bar thirsty.

♥"May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields, And until we meet again, May God hold you In the palm of his hand."

♥May the love and protection, St. Patrick can give - Be yours in abundance as
long as you live.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
