What Does "Luck of the Irish" Mean to You?


Although the reality is that Sean and I are both pretty much “mutts” with a wide variety of ethnicities and cultures in our families, I’ve always pretty much identified as Italian, and he’s always identified as Irish.

Those are the strongest threads (my grandmother was born in America to Italian immigrants and spoke Italian before she spoke English), so it’s no wonder we’ve identified that way, and really, Sean’s red hair as a child, and his still-red goatee, contribute to that impression as well!

When we fell in love 13 years ago, I hoped that “luck of the Irish” might mean I would end up with a cute little red-headed pixie one day, and I held my breath when our youngest was a baby with a definite strawberry blonde tint to her hair.

As it turns out, all four girls are blonde as can be (and I suspect they’ll all end up with dark hair as they get older).

But four beautiful little girls? I think that’s pretty lucky, red hair or not!
