Wishful Wednesday: Back to USA

It’s been about 4-5 months since I came back from my US vacation and I’m already wishing I’d go back before the year is out. Well, I wanted to join the Foodbuzz’s Blogger Festival this year but it is highly impossible. The best I can do with that is to try to join next year.

I enjoyed every moment I spent with my sister and nephew while I was there. It’s a fun and memorable trip as well because the whole family went with me. I also visited friends and relatives both from the East Coast and West Coast. Hard as it was to squeeze in everything within a 20-day vacation but I really enjoyed every stop we had along the way.

And because I’m wishing to go back to USA, I’d like to share with you some of the photos I took while I was there πŸ™‚ I wasn’t able to capture everything but I’m sure you could imagine how many pounds I gained after the trip πŸ˜›
