America! What a great country we live in! I’m so proud to celebrate and be part of the festivities in regards to celebrating the great country we live in–the United States of America. As part of my celebration, the day before 4th of July I got together with my UCLA bestie Nancy and drove down to celebrate with our friend Matt. We all had such a good time–good laughs and good food all by the poolside. On the 4th of July, I stayed in my hometown and celebrated with my family. We went over to my uncle’s house and had an amazing BBQ. I also got to spend some quality time with my little cousins, brothers, and parents. What more could I have asked for during this amazing three-day weekend?! Friends + family= happiness!
