It maybe over for most of you, but I just wanted to wish you all a Happy St. Paddy's Day and hope it was a safe one :)
We went to the parade this morning and to be totally honest with you guys, it was pretty disappointing! I hear the one in Dublin was a lot better... Anyway believe it or not it was my first time going to the St. Paddy's Day parade in Cork even though I've lived here most of my life! My family were never big fans of Patrick's Day being that it's basically an excuse to get drunk.
But having said that, it's important to be proud of your heritage and I'm certainly proud to have an Irish grandpa...because if it weren't for him my mom's family and my family would not have ended up here! My grandpa on my mom's side is 100% Irish, and he married a German woman (my Oma). My mom was actually born in Germany but moved to Ireland a year after she was born and grew up here. Her other brothers and sister were all born in Ireland. I never knew my family would end up here...when I was little our trips to Ireland to see my Oma and Opa were so special and exciting, that was back when Aer Lingus gave out cool gifts to kids travelling on international flights...like crayons, buttons, colouring paper and stickers! *Sigh* those were the days!

I hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day!
