I only started celebrating the holiday after meeting my husband. He also introduced me to the Irish music. Here we are with the Wolfe Tones at the Gentle Annie's pub in Ottawa as newlyweds in 1993. That same year was a good one for shows, we were "lucky" saw the Chieftains and the Hothouse Flowers too!
Since we have had kids, my husband has put on an annual St. Patty's sing-a-long at the pre-school. This year, he has coordinated the sing-a-long with a little birthday celebration for Evangeline Hope. In anticipation, I whipped up some skirts using Hickety Pickety's "Quick and Easy No-Hem Skirt" tutorial. I added some thrifted trim because the girls are really into embellishment right now. If I get a chance, I will update this post with a few photos, but tomorrow will be a busy day.
There was enough fabric left over for a scalloped bunting.
The girls are looking forward to the sing-a-long. Regardless of whether you are celebrate or not, may the wind always be at your back,
