4th of july.

this year my family and i celebrated the fourth of july at home, surrounded by the company of each other. i was sick with a nasty throat infection, but i was feeling a lot better by the time sunday night rolled around. we had a barbecue and then headed down to a street where we could (legally) set off and watch some friends light fireworks.

i feel so blessed to be able to live in a nation that prides itself on independence. i am so glad that i am given the freedoms that i am given and allowed to live the life that i want to.

thank you, america, thank you.

p.s.- you might be seeing a lot of pictures like these in the coming days. i am in love with firework pictures.
