When fun holidays, seasons, and celebrations make their way around, it’s always hard not to feel jealous, although I’m sure St. Patrick’s Day isn’t one you’d often hear associated with the word “jealousy” very often, but it is for me! You see, around this time every year, all of my social medias – but mostly my Instagram – is FILLED with images of Lucky Charms.
Recipes including it, photos of the box, DIY projects inspired by it, you name it. But little ol’ me, way over here in Australia, does not get to be blessed with such a cereal on my shelves. I actually couldn’t take it this year and went to a specialty candy store in hopes of finding a box of some… and I did. For $15.
I just couldn’t do it. I told myself I would go up to $10, because I honestly didn’t think it would be even that high, so my heart broke when I read $15. And thus, another year, another St. Patrick’s Day goes by, and I am still yet to taste Lucky Charms cereal. But that won’t stop me from celebrating in my own way! As you can see, I made the little marshmallows out of icing so I can snack happily and delicious and colourfully 🌈
