Everyone assumes that I am Irish because of my name. I have always loved my name, but I am not Irish. My roots are Scottish and German/Pennsylvania Dutch. But, as they say, we are all Irish on St. Patrick's Day!
I am posting this today as a mini-memorial for my dear friend Jill's beloved Patrick, for my Irish cousins (the Rileys) in New York state, for two amazingly inspirational Irish blogging buddies Heather Maria and Deirdre - and for all of you. This will be entered into this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge, a Bit O' Green. Enjoy the day and don't drink too much green beer.
