SOL 2019 -- Day 18 -- Three Good Things About Yesterday







Slice of Life story challenge, March 2019
Day 18 -- "Three Good Things about Yesterday"
*****************************************


1. Family
A get-together with extended family -- mostly cousins and their kids & grandkids -- at the Irish Family Reunion at the Columbus Convention Center was so much fun! I had never attended the event, held annually on St. Patrick's Day, but thousands of people do every year. The celebration was full of energy and music and dancing and love and Irish pride. I'm glad to have experienced it.
      


            









2. Morning Sunshine
The sun was shining in downtown Columbus during the morning and the early part of the afternoon, allowing the St. Patrick's Day Parade to take place before rain/snow moved in later in the afternoon. The parade had high school bands, bagpipers, police and firefighters, politicians, organizations, Irish dancers, horses wearing green, families, floats, and more. It was pretty spectacular! And the sunshine was SO nice to have, for both the parade participants as well as the spectators. Thank you, sunshine!



     




     












3. Earmuffs
When it's sunny outside, but fairly cold and rather windy, and you're watching a parade in March, what's a nice thing to have? The answer is earmuffs...fuzzy, fluffy ones that keep your ears toasty warm. I was SO glad to have them!

  3. I like how you use pictures in your slices. :) I used to do a better job of that, and I haven't this year! Your slices are reminding me to!
