The other day, my housemate and I watched a video called 30 Cities to Visit Before You’re 30. (It’s a great video—lots of pretty pictures and fun facts about the cities.) My housemate and I both love to travel, and she’s been to a bunch of places I haven’t (mainly in Asia), so together we were able to check off a number of the cities on the list.
Last weekend, my little sister and I packed up the car and went on an impromptu road trip to Madison, the capital of our next-door and “rival” state, Wisconsin.
Happy America day! I’m writing this under a sky that’s uncharacteristically cloudy for the week of July 4. But despite the gloomy weather, my heart is full. Even though I often dream of running away to travel the world, I am so grateful that I will always have a wonderful home to come back to. America, you have shaped me in everything that I am. I’m proud to celebrate the land of the free today.
