Plan ahead this St. Patty’s Day weekend

This St. Patty’s day weekend, celebrate the luck of the Irish and be sure to plan ahead!


Two years ago, my beautiful mother-in-law’s life was cut tragically short by an impaired driver. In honor of Donna Jean Kennie, please don’t drink and drive. Impaired driving is 100% preventable. Think about it.

  1. An important reminder, Natalie! Happy St. Pat’s Day! BTW, I’ve got dropbox, too!

  2. Such a fantastic and timely reminder, Natalie. Of all the areas in life that planning ahead matters, I can’t think of one more vital than before drinking. I saw a program featuring a man who’s been paralyzed and in a wheel chair since age 5, when a drunk driver hit his family’s car and sent him and his sister flying out of it. Making a decision not to drive after we start drinking doesn’t work. I know I don’t trust my brain when it’s tipsy! (Hmm, tipsier? ;))

    Thank you for this post. You may never know how many lives you change.

    • I couldn’t agree more August. It’s imperative to plan ahead because alcohol impairs our ability to make sound judgement calls.
      None of us would want to wake up and realize that a stupid, mindless choice cost someone the use of their legs…it’s not worth it!
      Here’s hoping and thanks so much for all of your support!!!

  3. great reminder, Natalie. I’m going to use dropbox for a million things – now that i know about it.
