A pinch of the Irish to all those not wearing green today! I’m rocking it out with my high waisted green pencil skirt from the Luella collection at Target last century. Haha. I’m serious. It is from forever ago but Luella is still in style and this skirt is still bright and festive.
We wanted something green, something bright, something festive: St. Patrick’s Day Sangria! Using some bottles of wine from the winery where we had our wedding reception, we made a great white wine sangria with a ton of delicious green fruits.
St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t always land on Friday so tonight I’m hoping to escape to Cocoa Beach with my wife and the boy for a late night tip walk on the sand. We will probably pack up our St. Patrick’s Day Sangria in a safe container to go and vibe on the beach while the sun goes down.
What are you doing today? Remember to always drink responsibly. And wear green!
