Everyone’s Irish today! 😉 I’ve done Chinese/the Lunar New Year, Arbor Day, and this year, I’m going with St. Patty’s Day! Really it’s perfect because I’m green. Limes generally are, you know 😉 Then there’s the fact that people often ask me if I’m Irish. It’s… funny. (I’m not, by the way.) I do, however, love a good Irish Pub – even the American versions of them. The best part is I don’t even drink beer. Somehow, it all works out.
I re-read it on a whim a few days ago, and was up until 4 AM, because I couldn’t stop. I had to finish the whole thing. It just killed me. In fact, here’s an amazing quote.
“I’m only asking you for one thing, Juliana. Come find me. I’ll either be here or in Newport – you know where – and I’ll be waiting for you. I don’t care if it’s a week, a year, five years, twenty years. Find me.”
“But surely you’ll be married with a family -”
He shook his head. “Never. It’s you or no one. So don’t think for a minute I won’t still want you or that my pride is too wounded to forgive you. I’ve already forgiven you. That’s how much I love you.”
See? You want this book. Now, I know it’s St. Patrick’s Day and everything is supposed to be all green… and I tried to think of books with green covers, or ones with Irish themes… but – see this one is purple, and it’s complimentary color is green! So it’s perfect, right? And Michael? His family is Irish! A large Irish family that’s absolutely wonderful. It words for St. Patrick’s. (And it’s a free book so you’ll take it and you’ll like it.) 😛
You want proof? It’s very green. Totally Irish and St. Patrick’s-ey.
I hope all of you have a wonderful and lucky very green day. Go get yourself a Shamrock Shake from Mickey D’s. Eat some delicious corned beef with green beer, and all that good stuff.
So my questions are – how do you feel about St. Patrick’s Day? Have any special celebrations or customs? Lastly, what random holiday should I celebrate with a giveaway next year? Answer these and you’re entered to win a lovely kindle copy of Love at First Flight. (It just makes sense, yes? St. Patty’s being the whole green holiday, and green living…)
