Luck of the Hermit

Happy St. Patty's Day, friends!

We have been enjoying the absolutely (and surprisingly) lovely weather. Family bonfires, backyard exploring, and lots of walking have felt really reinvigorating. Even though it was only a tease and the weather dropped 40 degrees between Friday and Saturday, it was a perfect little reminder that warmth is just around the corner. Spring is coming and I am so very ready. Hello shorts and bountiful spring farmer's markets!

Having bartended at an Irish pub for years in my early 20's I feel I can say with confidence I have experienced good ol' St. Patty's Day to the fullest. It's fun and silly and a nice time to kick back and enjoy a couple (dozen) beers, but I'm just not really feeling it this year. Don't get me wrong, I love a good Irish Car Bomb, but I'm feeling much more inclined to stay warm and snuggle with my two favorite boys. We had planned on watching the parade, but with the shift back towards the chilly bundling up the little guy and coaxing him away from the road didn't really sound all that appealing.

So we will be kicking it very low-key today. No green beer or Irish food (although I LOVE a good tempeh reuben!), but I'm sure we can make room for some adorable green outfits and maybe a limerick or two.

If you will be out this evening celebrating please be safe, my lovelies. Wishing everyone a joyful St. Pat's!

Happy belated St. Patty's Day! I'm very jealous of your weather (I say as it snows outside for the fourteen millionth time!). :)
