DO NOT pinch me...

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

I'm not even 1% Irish and I don't usually pay a lot of attention to March 17th (in fact I just realized I am not wearing a bit of green - oops.  But I would love to visit Ireland one day.

In other news...I'm off to Beaufort, SC this weekend to visit some lovely and much loved friends.  It's a 6 hour drive, although with a stop in Charleston for dinner, it'll take longer than that, but it will be SO worth it.  As if spending time with two of the best people on earth and going to a fabulous yoga class with one of them, enjoying some wonderful food and lots of laughing, isn't enough, Beaufort is a great destination in itself (much like Wilmington, but much more southern):

Beautiful, low country scenery

Historic old homes and buildings everywhere

Funky places to shop

On top of all that, it's supposed to be close to 80 degrees all week.  Heaven.  Have a great weekend y'all!  Oh, and am I the only one doing the happy dance because Saturday is THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING?!!  I thought not.


  1. I love Beaufort. I visited back in the mid- 90's. It is such a charming town. I think that middle white home with the black shutters was in one of my favorite movies, "The Great Santini".

    Eighty degrees! You lucky gal. It's supposed to rain here for the next 5+ days and it's a chilly 37 degrees at this moment. Brrr!

    Have a wonderful time!

  2. hi karin,

  3. Adrienne - I love Beaufort, too!
    Janet - I should have known you'd be at least half Irish, what with your beautiful coloring and dark hair!

  4. I hope you have the best time... I adore Charleston!
