Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
In spirit of the holiday and my Irish heritage I wanted to dedicate today to my great grandpa . He was 100% Irish (if I'm not mistaken) and this holiday always reminds me of him since we celebrated together when I was growing up. I don't really have any specific stories to share I just thought it would be nice to take a moment and cherish the good times that we did have together. For one, I'll always associate St. Patrick's Day with the need to serve corned beef & cabbage (despite the fact that I am a vegetarian and don't even eat that!!) and I also think of him over-salting everything on his plate. He had a kind heart, the biggest smile I've ever seen, and was overall a sweet natured person. He played the organ, had an obscenely large collection of spare change (kept in a jar, in his closet), and always wore a sweatshirt to Christmas dinner that said "Tis the season to be squeezin'!"
I have some great memories of him and I am glad I had the opportunity to set time aside today and remember that. Here's to a wonderful celebration today! Cheers!
