How can one possibly not absolutely love St. Patrick’s Day? A day full of green explosions, joy, shenanigans, gold coins, green feathers, traditional food, and libations flowing. Yes, Home with Sparkle is embracing it whole heartedly. Come along, enjoy and give yourself a pinch from me if you are not wearing green on St. Patty’s Day!
