Fun Girls + Bartletts = fun!

 

I love this picture. Stacy and I met The Bartletts at Shamrock for brunch this morning. Their little ginger girl Abby is smart, funny, kind, conscientious, and a testament to the goodness of her generation. She gives me hope for the future. Bryan and Jen have done an incredible job raising her and I can’t wait to see what brilliance her future holds. Meanwhile, it’s clear to me that meeting for lunch every once in a while with the Bartletts just won’t do. We need to meet, and meet often, because I always come away feeling better about everything. I’m lucky to have them as friends. I must be living right.

On the eve of the Ides of March and the eve eve eve of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it fitting to post a photo of our mostly Irish friend in a shamrock tiara. Her eyes nearly match the emblem. The tag, however, was not optional. At least it was green. Happy early St. Patrick’s Day!

I looked up from my desk to find this standing in front of me. I laughed out loud and I couldn’t help but think of Carol Hart. I know it’s not a hat (the hats Stacy used to model from Kroger that Carol found so cute), but somehow I think Carol would have appreciated Stacy in these Shamrock glasses. Stacy(sans Shamrock glasses) and I met Catherine Brereton and Susan Stewart for dinner after work. I was hoping for a Guinness to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but we ended up at a place that didn’t have it. No matter, it was a great day with a load of laughs, lots of Irish luck, and no snakes. I call that a winning day.
