My Favorite Day

St. Patrick's Day 2003 - I met my husband.

St. Patrick's Day 2005 - We got engaged.

St. Patrick's Day 2007 - We had just finished our first IVF and I had a feeling it had worked. Two days later I took the first of many (many many) positive home pregnancy tests.

St. Patrick's Day 2009 - There is no excitement. Aside from some beautiful flowers from my husband, no big celebration. I didn't go anywhere tonight for the first St. Patrick's day in a long, long time.

But I had this....







and this......




So it definitely still ranks up there as one of the best.

What a beautiful blog and beautiful children. I stumbled upon it today and I am very touched by your family's story. Thanks for sharing it. My husband and I have 5 children, youngest being twin 9 month old boys. Definitely giving them an extra hug tonight.

Best Wishes to all of you!

My husband and I used to take the day off work on St. Patrick's day every year and go downtown to DC and start the day off at The Dubliner- it was so fun...
