Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We’ve got a gorgeous day on tap, and I am starting my birthday weekend. . . now. I am off to the JFK Presidential Library for a walk through and then for a walk along the waterfront in the sunshine. This day is a long time coming!
We still don’t have specific plans tonight, but I am sure there will be some sort of celebrating. To mark the occasion, give you all a laugh, and show you over a decade of trips to Ireland, I thought I would share a few photos. I kind of got scanner happy. . . so you may be seeing many more old photos in the future!
Summer 1999 in Galway with a former member of the Sawdoctors- I know you don’t see much of Ireland in this photo, but look at how ridiculous both my hair and skirt are!
March 2001, my apartment in Galway – I can’t believe I studied abroad 10 years ago! This was, I believe, the night before my 21st birthday. . .
April 2001 Inis Mor, the Aran Islands
Sometime in 2001 – The above is my apartment building. My bedroom was at the very top all the way to the left, and I loved it. Below is the view out of my bedroom window of the weekly farmers market.

The rugged wild West of Connemara, Bauranaraun, the place where my father in law comes from
I have hundreds more where these came from. May your day be filled with luck, friendship, and St. Patrick’s Day cheer! I’ll be back later with a recipe for Irish brown bread!
