4th of July

Happy Birthday to America!

I remember many 4th of July celebrations at my grandmother’s house in Rancho Cucamonga. All of my cousins and I would sit out in front of her yard and watch the entire neighborhood light up the street with TNT fireworks. Later on those celebrations would occur at my Auntie Lea’s or my Uncle Leo’s house, but it would be the same idea – tons of food, lots of good company, and of course, fireworks.

This year, I tried to re-create what I grew up with by inviting friends over and cooking a feast, which also included some boozy drinks. (Hey, I’m adult now!) To end the night, we enjoyed the ‘bombs bursting in air’ a.k.a. fireworks from the rooftop of my apartment. It was definitely a fun evening, and I’m bummed that today is now Monday… Womp womp.

Hope you also had a wonderful 3-day weekend with your friends and family!!! <3 <3 <3 'Til the next time. - E Main Spread:
