Young, Dope, Proud

I mentioned this in my last post, but 4th of July has always been my favorite holiday. It has been a big celebration for my family for as long as I can remember.

This one was particularly special: the 30 year anniversary of our annual Jersey Shore party & the first year that we have been back to my aunt and uncle’s house in Mantoloking since Hurricane Sandy.

The house looks more beautiful than ever
