Saint Patrick's Day blessings upon you, friends!

We woke up to a sunny and mild day here, perfect for lounging in bed to an Irish music soundtrack. Paddy's Day here is like Fourth of July in the US, coupled with a dash of celtic mysticism, religious lore... and a LOT of partying.

Here's some Irish goodness to help you celebrate wherever you are!

  1. I was in Ireland last April and am totally missing it today! I'm a HUGE U2 fan, so they are on heavy rotation today in addition to the St Patrick's channel on Pandora. Thanks for the blog and touch of Irish to remind me of my short trip!
