I wanted to share some fun St. Patrick’s Day links with you to help you get in the mood for celebrating.  And then I have some links for recipes that aren’t necessarily St. Patrick’s Day fun related, but they have a bit of green or mint involved.  I love getting into the spirit for St. Patrick’s Day!

A wee bit of St. Patrick’s Day fun for everyone ::
