Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I love being Irish! There is just a wonderful feeling being associated with the legend of St. Patrick and the beautiful land across the pond. I visited Ireland in 2000 and I will forever carry that trip in my heart. The landscapes are so lush and green and the people of Ireland so warm. And lest we not forget so many sheep - in the fields and the roads! Wonderful.
Chicago is the second best place to spend St. Patrick's Day! I will be watching The Quiet Man and wishing my Dad was sitting next to me quoting the movie lines. Such a simple pleasure lost forever. I wish the very best of luck to you - for on this day everyone is Irish!
