st. patrick's day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.


Even though my dad's side of the family is Irish, I didn't celebrate St. Patrick's Day until a couple of years ago. The holiday has a lot of sentimental meaning to me now though! It was on St. Patty's Day that I officially met my boyfriend. We were introduced through a friend of mine, and hit it off instantly. Now, whenever the holiday comes around, I remember the night that completely changed the course of my life.

On that note, here are some pictures to help you get into the mood to celebrate!





For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
