I ♥ St. Patrick's Day!

Aside from my birthday ... and BB's birthday ... and my husband's birthday ... and Devo's birthday, St. Patrick's Day is my favorite day of the year. I could say it's my favorite holiday (Halloween is a close second).

This quirky little fact about me is recognized and loved by many of my friends who, to celebrate, send me cards and gifts. Seriously. It's a sweet deal.

My loot this year has included cards, a bookmark, a Good Luck Bear Care Bear book and two handmade items from Wendy: a crocheted clover pin and crocheted clover garland (pictured here).

I love that no matter how quirky it is, my friends support this addiction of mine. And addiction it is. This morning, I couldn't decide which clover necklace to wear (I have 4), so I wore 2. At work, I got a little giddy when I saw the clover bracelets being sold for 50 cents at a bake sale and spent money destined for lunch - necessary nourishment - on one.

Because my friends so fully support me, I in turn share the love and typically bring edible goodies to work. I didn't this year because, in a dark moment, I didn't think anyone appreciated it. I might've been wrong. So, I'm bringing the goodies that I had planned for today in tomorrow. Who knows? Maybe it was my plan all along in order to extend the day 24 more hours.

I too enjoy St. Patrick's Day! I unfortunately could not celebrate much this year, but I will not be making that mistake again.
