All Things Green for St. Patrick’s Day
Being married to an Irish man for 21 years, it’s a good thing I love green.
Green has always been my favorite color. My kitchen is green, I love to wear green, the color itself just makes me happy!
This was a fun little project that I put together for my blog for St. Patrick’s Day. I have over 20,000 photos in iPhoto on my computer (yes, it’s backed up regularly). I quickly ran my mouse over the months and pulled out my favorite green pictures to share today.
Ha! I realized how much I love spring and summer. Here’s a few things “green” that I love.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, friends!

Can you tell I’m gearing up in my mind for spring and summer? It’s hard to find “pretty green” in the dreary winter months. Only a few days ago, this popped up in our front yard. I couldn’t believe it. Only ONE.
I looked around in our neighbors yards – nothing.
So I’ve been enjoying our one and only daffodil this week, and anxiously awaiting the other blooms.
We’re be on our way to Carnegie Hall, where my daughter and her violin group will be performing this next week at the Music Festival. It’s a very exciting week for us!
I’m sure NYC will be buzzing on St. Patty’s Day … don’t you think?
What are your St. Patrick’s Day plans this year?
