Thinking of Ireland Today...

Happy St. Patrick's Day! For some reason, I've always been drawn to Ireland. I knew my family had ancestors from there, but it's not exactly close. I believe it was my grandfather's grandmother who was originally from Ireland. I would love to visit, though.

I mean, look at this:

Beautiful. When we lived in North Carolina, we had a missionary serving there from Ireland. We'd have the elders over for dinner quite frequently, so we got to know him well. Each time he was over, he'd get a little homesick, the poor kid. Apparently I look like 99% of the population of Ireland! Ridiculously pale skin. Dark brown hair. A few freckles. And I guess it didn't help that I actually knew who Flogging Molly was!

So go put on some green & enjoy your St. Patrick's Day! (And no, I don't think you have to go out drinking to do so! lol) Maybe one day I'll tell you about a trip to Ireland.

Haha, I like me a bit of Flogging Molly every now and then. Not as much as I used to. I have enough "noise" around me now. And yes you do look Irish!

I've actually been to the place in your picture. I can't recall what the name is at the moment though. It used to be a girls school? It has been a while since I visited that place in the picture.

You should go to Ireland someday! Summer travel there is fairly expensive but Fall is a great time to go! I've been there often as my big brother has lived there for 19 years now.
