Lucky In Love Blog Hop!


If this is your first visit to my blog, WELCOME! If you are returning, it’s great to see you again!

Many thanks to the host of this event: Carrie Ann Ryan.

   ~Blog Post~

I've always been a sucker for magic and fairies and possibilities (I'm sure those of you who have read my modern-day fairy tale, Diamonds and Toads see what I mean), so St. Paddy's day, with its traditions of 4-leaf clovers and leprechauns is right up my alley. 

In fact, when I heard the tale, as a kid, that pots of gold could be found at the end of rainbows, I spent quite a few 'Dora the Explorer' hours endeavoring to FIND said 'end of the rainbow' (even though the naysayers chimed in to say with much authority that it was actually IMPOSSIBLE to find the end of a rainbow). Still I tried. I had a lot of fun on my expeditions, too. Because I spent those hours thinking of the outcome (the pot of gold--and, if I was VERY lucky, the meeting of a real-life leprechaun, to boot), but also, I usually managed to find some interesting bugs and rocks and animal nests and other natural wonders on my quest.

So, for all of you who are like me, still a kid at heart, and still believing it's possible to find the end of a rainbow: Happy hunting and Ádh mór ort! 



For each petal on the shamrock this brings a wish your way. 
Good health, good luck, and happiness for today and every day.
~Irish Blessing

  3. Guilty! While I never found the end I did always have a great time doing it. I even got lost once and got rescued by a cute farm boy. Lol Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. I love the question you asked!

    Yes, we chased after rainbows as children and I still feel a thrill when I see a rainbow -- and have tried to find the end of one many times.

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

  13. I'm much too practical to hunt for the end of the rainbow. I would rather plan for earning or creating my own pot of gold.

  38. I keep my eye out, but we don't get rainbows here very often. Ireland and Hawaii have a definite advantage in that hey both get a lot of rainbows.

  40. I remember starting out to look for the end of the rainbow and my mom dragging me back in the house. I was 7 at the time and no one would take me. I was so upset about that. LOL I told my mom if I could find the end of the rainbow, we would have a pot of gold and she wouldn't have to work anymore. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

  41. No, I never looked for the end of a rainbow or a pot of gold, although I've always loved rainbows and have taken a photo of a particularly nice one as often as I can...and have framed a couple of the photos. We usually wear green in our family on St. Pat's Day (to avoid pinching), eat Irish soda bread for breakfast and watch a movie with Ireland as the background (like The Quiet Man with Maureen O'Hara). jdh2690@gmail.com

  42. I used to actually RUN THE FLOWERING WAND in sunny weather (to get a rainbow going), and try to grab at it! What a silly kid...

  43. I don't recall every chasing a rainbow. But I remember being told it was a circle so there was no end. It's still a beautiful thing to see.

    Thanks for being in the Happy St. Patrick’s Day blog hop.

  53. All the time. But then I was scared of a leprachaun coming after me. I used to watch that movie constantly when I was really little. I loved it. I was like 3 and watching it.

  59. I've tried but never was successful.
    What a great giveaway hop! I have yet to be lucky in love but I'm working on it. My favorite love book is "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is amazing and beautiful. I enjoy St. Patty's Day and this year I'm spending it with my best friend. We're going to two Irish Pubs and also some dance clubs. I am also wearing green and am not a fan of getting pinched. I'm not Irish either, but many people think I am because my hair is red, my eyes green and my name is Meghan, but I'm not at all. I won't be telling anybody that, however… let them believe I'm Irish.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
