I couldn’t let St. Patrick’s Day pass without a nod to my Irish side.  I’m thankful for my Brennan blood!  I’ve long loved this Irish blessing and wanted to share it with you.  (The awesome printable can be picked up from Ladybird Ln on Etsy here.)

Enjoy the weekend!  And Happy St. Patty’s Day!

  1. I’m not Irish but I love my kids knowing the real reason for particular festivals and special days. I made these cute printables which we used as cupcake toppers. I also made some pot of gold gift tags for anyone who finds the end of the rainbow. http://bit.ly/fr33bies

    I also found this gorgeous little Vegie Tales clip about the real origins. Thought you might want to share them with your followers. Have a fabulously green St Patricks Day!

  2. Amanda, Thank you for linking to my articles this week and last week! What an honor! I always love your list – you always seem to catch great articles I’ve missed through the week. :) Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Warmly, Emily

  3. Amanda, thank you SO much for featuring my Irish Blessing Printable, what an honor! I hope you had a great St. Patrick’s Day!
