Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

“May your joys be as deep as the oceans,
Your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find sweet peace of mind,
Wherever you may roam.”

 – Irish Blessing

Growing up I always wore my green, ate my lucky charms, and went to parades, but I never felt like I could actually identify with Ireland’s holiday because the running family joke was “we’re Scottish, not Irish!” (St. Andrew’s Day just doesn’t have that same international appeal!), but as I’ve researched my family I’ve finally discovered that I do, in fact, have some Irish heritage and I can now celebrate without feeling fraudulent. So… Cheers! Sláinte! and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
