Freedom Friday: The Four Leaf Clover Edition

Happy Friday Everyone!

The only thing Irish about ThatKellieGirl is my name.  And I sure don’t believe in leprechauns.   However, I do believe in some good music.  

So in honor of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, enjoy this throwback from Atlantic Starr “Touch a Four Leaf Clover”. 

And check out some great happenings below. 🙂

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl
