St. Patrick's day is almost bigger than Christmas for my family.
We started our day with Irish coffees, and then at about 10 am, our designated drivers took us to downtown Atlanta for beers at Fado's. We were planning to go to the parade, but traffic was insane, so we all headed back home to celebrate. I spent the rest of the day sitting on the back patio, smoking pipes and drinking beer, talking to my dad all day. It was amazing.
We played a trivia game, made corned beef and irish sodabread, toasted with a few shots of Bailey's, and called it a night. We might have been drinking all day, but at no point was anyone noticeably tipsy. We just enjoyed the day as a happy Irish family. My family is really close, and we love to talk about ideas and opinions. We talked about politics, religion, sex, video games, movies, and whatever else we could think of.
