a bridal shower for katie

a virtual vacation is the closet we're getting to a vacation . . .
it turns out that march 30th is national virtual vacation day. there's no chance of going on an actual vacation any time soon, so i'll have to settle for looking back at old vacation pictures today and pretending i'm at some of my favorite places. i could easily go for hawaii, disney, or bermuda right about now.
in order to make myself feel like i'm at disney, i'll be over here on youtube watching all of the disney ride p.o.v. videos if anyone's looking for me.

happy st. patrick's day
i think ryan has the "luck of the irish" in him because he has such a knack for finding four-leaf clovers. he's my "lucky charm." he has found several over the years, and i have kept most of the ones that he found (by pressing them between two pieces of wax paper and letting them dry out.)
i've read that 1 in every 5,000 clovers has four leaves and that your odds of finding one are 1 in 10,000. the four leaves represent hope, faith, love, and luck.
here's a few of our favorite st. patrick's day recipes from over the years . . .
- irish soda bread scones
- rustic cast-iron skillet irish soda bread
- vegan irish soda bread (with dried cherries)
- shamrock cut-out sugar cookies

something extra special in our grocery bag!
after lunch at the cheesecake factory on saturday, we went to trader joe's for a long over-due tj's haul. it has been way too long since we've had a chance to stock up on our favorite things from tjs, so we were really happy to go. when we got home, we found a little something extra special hiding in our grocery bag!

let's break out the power tools!
i had to laugh when i saw that today is "national worship of tools" day. i've never met anyone who loves working with tools and doing projects as much as ryan! he certainly gets a kick out of breaking out the power tools!

when ryan came home last night after working a several-day long event, he walked through the door with a box filled with roses! they were used as centerpieces for the event tables, and the florist was throwing them out at the end of the night to only take the vases back to the floral shop. once they realized that the flowers were being tossed, ryan and a few other staff members grabbed some to bring home. ryan brought home three bunches from three centerpieces. since they were cut short, we put them in a small container. all together there are a little over three dozen roses and they are so pretty. leko enjoyed smelling them too. it was the end of the night but we had to snap a few pictures because they were so pretty!

let's make peace
today is international women's day. on this bright sunny monday morning let's come together to support women instead of harass them.
the theme of this year's women's day is #choosetochallenge. we're responsible for our thoughts and actions, so let's consciously choose to lift each other up instead of knocking each other down. please.
especially after this year-long pandemic, today on this international women's day, i'm hoping for peace. let's give each other peace by not attacking each other. together, let's make peace.
