Normally I’m not one to enjoy fireworks – crazy, I know. But it was nice spending time with my church family. They mean a lot to me. Also this may sound cheesy, but I actually quite like celebrating this holiday. My parents immigrated from a country where they had little to no freedom, and I was lucky enough to be born and raised with such amazing privileges. It’s easily taken for granted, but what a blessing it is. With that said, enjoy the photo diary of my 4th of July!
