St. Patrick"s Day In Chicago ~

May your troubles be less and your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness comes through your door...

Yesterday I went out early for a walk to be part of 
the St Patrick’s day celebrations that were and is still going on. 
 It was cold 31F,  so I bundled up pretty good.  Luckily it was
 very sunny and before you knew it I was getting warm. 
 Many were in shorts!  Yes shorts. Crazy!

The people. The parade. The life that is this city reminded 
me why we love Chicago so much.  Arvid stayed in to
 watch a soccer game. I just wanted to be out. See the 
river and experience everything taking place.

I loved walking in the cold and brisk air.  Reminded me
 of being in Branson. I had the best time.  Everyone was 
happy and just having the best of times.  The weather did
not seem to matter at all.  Was fun to see and experience.

Arvid and I had our share of being Irish as well.  Later 
on in the day we went to and Irish Pub.  The beer
 was green and everyone was very happy.  

It felt great to experience all of this in the city we love
 so much.  I secretly believe Arvid loves Chicago more than 
any other place.  Too bad it's so cold in the winter time.

So far we have been having a great time.  It is definitely cold.  
I am so enjoying it, but I know Arvid is cold even though 
he is not mentioning it too much.  Unusual for him.  
It just goes to show how much he loves it here.

Good morning everyone.  The celebration continues today.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend and making 
lasting memories.  To all Happy St. Patrick's Day.

I've always thought you have to believe in luck to get it.
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night...
