Goooooood morning everyone! Happy almost Friday! So unfortunately it looks like we’ve finally come full circle on the pandemic and have reached the ‘technical’ 1 year anniversary. With that being said, the vaccine is slowly but surely being circulated which is a nice relief and reassuring in my eyes. If you can, please go get vaccinated! I wish I qualified already. ANYWAYS. It looks like we’re on our second St. Patty’s Day of barely any festivities. As disappointing as it can be, it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate in the comfort of your own home! So I decided to compile a list of 10 super festive St. Patrick’s Day desserts that will definitely get you into the leprechaun spirit! Be on the lookout for a few more home-friendly St. Patrick’s Day articles coming out before the big day next Wednesday! Enjoy!
