This marks the first holiday J and I have spent completely alone. Bittersweet. We missed our family and friends (and singing all the verses of Yankee Doodle Dandy), but enjoyed our evening together. I found that I was more reflective of the reason for the holiday itself. Even though I am not always outspoken about my love for my homeland, I am grateful to grow up in a country that allows me the freedom to pursue my dreams.
Hope you all had a happy 4th!
