Green-eyed baby. That's what my mom called my youngest daughter when she was little. That baby turned 21 a few days ago.
For her birthday, I wrote a little poem using the first letters of t-w-e-n-t-y o-n-e and I put it on little tags.
English Language question: What does smitten mean? When you are smitten with someone, that means that you love someone or they make you really happy.
She laughed at my word "smitten". She thought that was pretty funny.
Birthdays are a big deal in our family. Especially a milestone birthday like 21! But really we like to celebrate all of our holidays. And the one that is this newly turned 21 year-old's favorite just happens to be St. Patrick's Day.

When she was little I always packed her lunch with all things green. And for dinner, we would have an entirely green dinner served on green plates with green napkins. Some years it was simply green eggs. And others it would be complete with green mashed potatoes, green biscuits and green milk (yes, green beer too). This year will be the same. Except that the girl who loves it the most will not be joining us ...
She is flying off to Dublin today for her Spring Break! How's that for a great St. Patrick's day?!!
Happy St. Patrick's Day my dear green-eyed Irish girl! Have a wonderful trip!
