may your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.

There are few things I love as much as holidays. Not just the big ones....but all of them. There is something special about taking time to have fun, let loose, and spend time with people you love. And hey, if you get to dress up and get creative at the same time? That is a total bonus! It is no wonder I am so excited about St. Patrick's Day this year. (Even if it does fall on a Tuesday.) It gives me an excuse to put on my green t-shirt, put together a green-inspired makeup look, and be social. What could be better than that?

Over the past few years, St. Patrick's Day in particular has taken on a special meaning to me. It is the day that my fiance and I officially met. Every year since then, we have always tried to do something to celebrate. Last year he even bought me a festive t-shirt and a pair of green sunglasses. It made the celebrations even better! Unfortunately, this year he is working on St. Patrick's Day. Despite this, I know it will still be an amazing celebration. My friend and I are planning to get dressed up, head out for a few drinks, and check out a movie. I am ridiculously excited for all of the fun that the evening has to offer. And all of the green, too!

Since St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow, I thought it was only fitting that I put together a little inspiration post. This will be full of pictures and quotes that are making me ridiculously excited for all of the festivities. Take a look and get ready to get inspired yourself....

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin 
transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.  - Adrienne Cook
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don't want to press your luck.

I love holidays. And I especially love St. Patrick's Day. Not only does it have a sentimental meaning to me but it is a great way to kick-start the beginning of spring and have a little fun. How will the evening go? I will be sure to keep you posted.

How are you planning to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year?
