When was your best day ever?
One of my best memories is Labor Day Weekend, 2012. My sister Susan and I were at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin enjoying my first ever Guinness while we were looking down over the city on a perfect late Summer day. We made our way down to the street and walked across much of Dublin to watch Notre Dame football beat Navy. (Go Irish!!)
