Orange Blossom Time

It is June, the bridal month, and the scent of orange blossoms is in the air.

Generations of brides' veils and bouquets have been adorned with these fragrant flowers ~ for tradition states that they bring Good Luck.

Our clan will soon gather to celebrate the union of our dear niece Jennifer, and her Andrew.

In honor of the young couple, and the McCaffrey ancestors I offer this prayer:

An Irish Blessing for the Bride and Groom

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

Aunt Marjorie


  1. Blessings to the beautiful couple!

  2. Dear Marjorie,
    Wishing Jennifer and Andrew a wonderful day and many, many years of happiness and happy times together. XXXX
