St Patrick's Day printable mason jar gift idea - just print, cut and insert in the top of a mason jar for a one of a kind gift in a jar

I have a friend who texts or calls me EVERY SINGLE TIME our school has an early release. Which happens several times a year. She does this because she knows I have the memory of a goldfish with Alzheimer’s and my personal calendar is always out of sync. She knows if she’s doesn’t touch base with me, although I love my children more than life itself … they will more than likely be standing out on the curb waiting for me to come and pick them up.

How does she know? Cause it has happened before.

Once, but it won’t happen again because she won’t allow it to.

Friends like that are special.

They deserve diamonds and gold, or a girl’s weekend to some tropical locale but since that isn’t in our girls rule the world budget right now, chocolate and gold it is!

I know she wont mind :)

She’s that cool of a chick. And I am super lucky to have her as a friend.
