The first thing I keep all year is my shamrock. I replanted one my mom bought me a year ago, and she heard an old wive's tale that if you "water" it with a little whiskey, it takes off. It's true! About once every six weeks, I give this guy a few drops of Templeton Rye, and in the summer, you can't believe how huge it is.
Here are a few of my favorite Irish views and memories!
