Outside the door for our flat in Mountjoy Square Ireland for nearly a year.

One of my favourite holidays is upon us again. I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. Every year, for St. Patrick’s Day, I reminisce about my days living abroad in Ireland and Scotland, making the move to Ireland with one of my dearest friends, I love you Amy, about making the dear friendship with a French girl, Aurelie, whose also has a birthday this month, Happy Birthday Aurelie, and meeting my now German husband while travelling through Europe via my job in Scotland.

In addition to bonding friendships and meeting my husband, Ireland changed my life in other ways, click here for that post: How Ireland Changed my life

For some real Irish fun, click here for a fun Irish craft the whole family can have fun with. Last year, we did this craft with fellow toddler friends and with adult family members(see pictures below) Also don’t forget to bend over upside down to kiss your blarney stone, as you see my German husband, son, and French girlfriend below… Click here for the Irish Craft: Kissing the Blarney Stone & St. Patrick’s Day Crafts
