Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

It's a picture perfect St. Patrick's Day the sun is shinning, the snow is melting the grass is.....brown :) well at least the sun is shinning! I have not prepared anything special for today, no green cookies, food or even corned beef and cabbage :( it's very sad. I did put on a green shirt and give Amber a green bow, we're the only two Irish ones in the house so we have to show some support for the day! I will share with you three Irish blessing/poems from my tiny "Irish Blessings" book above.

The first is in honor of St. Patrick's Day:

May the leprechauns
be near you,
To spread luck
along your way.
And may all the
Irish angels
Smile on you
St. Patrick’s Day.

The second one is to make you laugh:

Health and a long life to you.
Land without rent to you.
A child every year to you.
And if you can’t go to heaven,
May you at least die in Ireland.

And the third is one I love:
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure it’s like a morning spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angles sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
They’ll steal your heart away!
~ Traditional Irish Folk Song

Here are my favorite smiling Irish eyes! (I really hope this video works I've been having issues getting videos lately)

Yesterday we enjoyed a lovely 5 mile walk! Amber really loves being out in the fresh air so I think we're going to head out on another walk! Hope you're all enjoying some sunshine!!


  1. I'm sorry your video didn't work, I was looking forward to those Irish eyes! Remember the year we had green milk, green mashed potatoes, peas, and pistachio pudding for dessert? I don't remember what the meat was but I do remember while it was a cute idea, in reality the shades of green were less than appealing.

  2. I loved your Irish poems...they did make me smile!!!! Give your little Irish sweetie a kiss from Gramma!
