Word of the Week: Sláinte

The word of the week (Saint Patrick's Day week!) for March 12th through the 18th is...

Sláinte /SLAHN-cha/

A Gaelic word used in Ireland to toast to good health; cheers.

The best man ended the toast by raising his glass and wishing the newly married couple a happy life together, "Sláinte!"

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
