In case the pale skin and freckles didn't give it away... I've got a good bit of Irish in my blood. St. Patrick's Day is a big deal in my book... Here are a few reasons (and pictures) why this year's is especially happy:
1. It is Sam's first.
2. It is Addy's birthday (She's four, which is 28 in dog years- the same age I will turn in about a week. She caught up!)
3. We went to a big parade downtown and ate fish and chips for lunch. (I also saw a goat on a leash at - not in - the parade... big BONUS.)
4. It was 80 degrees here today with just the right amount of breeze to keep me from melting.
5. Sam played with his grandparents so Jeff and I could have "me" time this afternoon- he golfed with a buddy while I got a pedicure and bought spring decorations and goodies for Sam's Easter basket.
I am "lucky" indeed.
