Said it best: Happy St. Patrick's Day

As I mentioned yesterday, St. Patrick's Day is special. To mark the occasion, I wanted to share an excerpt of an Irish blessing close to my heart. I read these lovely words at my Dad's funeral five and a half years ago, and I always find joy in the passage. 

St. Patrick's Day was one of his favorite times of the year. So even though today is green beer, pinching and other shenanigans to most, it goes beyond that for me. It's not only a time for the above mentioned fun, but to take pride in my roots and honor my father.

Every bride has their own color, and some dynamic, some dazzling colorful, full of love ... ... and some colors are the future of each symbol, depicting the bride's future.
