Another lovely River O’ Green in Tampa.
St. Patrick’s Day is such an anomaly in my festive world. I’m not Irish and I don’t drink. By all accounts one wouldn’t think I’d be such a fan of the holiday. It has two major components working for it though, green and luck. Those two things are serious in Sawyer’s world, so I MUST be festive for the occasion.
When Tampa started the River O’ Green celebration, I was thrilled. My city, a festival AND a crap ton of green?! You’d think it was St. Sawyer’s Day or something! So me.
(I know coloring a river green isn’t a new idea, but it’s not like I could fly to Chicago every year.)
This year, even my bike was decked out! It was my first St. Patty’s with my super-sweet-sparkly-green dream bike. Intentionally or not, she fit the occasion perfectly. I even had a little extra bit of luck. A lovely ladybug decided to keep me company, sitting on my leg while I admired the river greening.
