Happy St. Patrick's Day :]
I would have to admit that my favorite part about this holiday is going to Stewarts with my green tshirt and getting icecream :). It used to be FREE icecream with the green clothing, but now it's $.50. Ehh, still not bad, it was worth the five minute drive for some birthday cake deliciousness. I miss those elementary days of leprachaun hunting and rainbow chasing. We had this teacher, who happened to be red-headed and a little out there, who would dress as a leprachaun every year, and we would set these "traps" the day before to try to catch him. It was a pretty big deal haha, looking for him all day, disappointed when we saw our traps disassembled and empty :P. Then there was good old rainbow chasing with my grandma, searching for that pot of gold. She obviously knew we wouldn't find anything, but I think she just drove me around so we could spend the time together, and before long I would get wrapped up in talking with her and forget we were looking for anything in the first place. Oh, and whatever happened to the search for the four leaf clover? I miss childhood.

So my maple business has been a success lately :). The candies have been selling well, a lot more people are into maple than I realized, which is cool. The weather has been awful for sugaring though, we need the cold to make the sap run. I however, enjoy this surprisingly warm weather. I just wish it didn't affect our syrup. Spring break is just around the corner, 21 days! Did I tell you guys what I'm doing for it? Well, if I didn't, our class is going to DisneyWorld for our senior trip. I'm so ready for the warmth and the fun.

Hope everyone is doing well,
♥ Olive

Happy late St. Patty's day, haha! Free ice cream, or even 50 cent ice cream, sounds pretty great :) Now I'm really craving some right about now.... And rainbow chasing with your grandma sounds like fun, hehe! We never do anything cool like that for St. Patrick's day. I'm glad the maple business is going well! And I can't wait for spring break and warm temperatures and all of that jazz :D
