Top o’ the mornin’ to you this fine St. Patrick’s Day morning! Who knew I had so many St. Patrick’s Day posts on this blog? But after almost 4 years of blogging, I guess it would start adding up! Throwback Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day Edition 2016 is a conglomeration of all posts celebrating the luck of the Irish, the wearing of the green, Leprechauns and rainbows and all things Irish!
Broken up into categories – the categories of Toot Sweet 4 Two – Throwback Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day Edition 2016 includes at least one post in seven of my nine categories:
- Sweet Eats (recipes)
- Sweet Home (emergency planning, gardening, green living, health & wellness, housekeeping, The Elder Care Diaries, The Mommy Diaries)
- Sweet Ideas (children’s stories, crafts, parties and tablescapes)
- Sweet Nothings (about stuff that doesn’t fit in any other category)
- Sweet On (innovations, inspirations, inventions, opportunities, photography, reviews and products)
- Sweet Spot (adventures, nature and travel)
- Sweet Talk (holiday wishes, in remembrance, motivational and inspirational quotes)
Missing from the above categories are Sweet Life (family, pets, Sweet Memories) and Sweet Things (stuff I just want to share). I’ll have to work on that next year!
So, on this glorious St. Patrick’s Day morning, join me for a trip down memory lane – Throwback Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day Edition 2016:
