Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here I am with my usual shout-out for this great day of the year.

I’m a good part Irish, so I got a big kick out of writing about a crazy Irish family in my most recent Harlequin American Romance (FAMILY MATTERS, October 2010).

And today, I’m honoring tradition by eating corned beef and cabbage and soda bread. I also made a point of following “the wearin’ of the green”—from clothing to jewelry, including a favorite shamrock pin that once belonged to my grandmother.

Traditions help make any holiday even more special, I think. Don't you?

And whether you’re Irish or honorary Irish, you’re allowed to celebrate today. (smile)

Have you got any traditions of your own?

In any case, once again, let me wish you a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

All my best to you,



Barbara White Daille

My maiden name was Yates and I have red hair. Okay, so it was redish auburn when I was younger. Happy St. Paddy's Day! I too wore green today.

Pamela - I wish I could claim red hair but the closest I came to it was giving my heroine in FAMILY MATTERS a headful of red curls. LOL

Have a wonderful day!

We had corned beef & colcannon for dinner ,,, soda bread that came out a bit too crusty, so was turned into Irish cream bread pudding ... and when my kids came downstairs this morning they found a trail of shamrocks left behind by a leprechaun to lead them to a pot of gold.

Kris - lucky kids!

And great thinking on the pudding. Can't let all that good bread go to waste.

A good day to be Irish. Dressed grandbaby in his leprachun hat and took his picture with the leprachaun and the pot of gold. The leprachaun only releases his gold to grandchildren, a tradition I borrowed from my mother.

Awww, Linda, I'll bet he looked adorable! Thanks for sharing.
