One Day of My American Life

It was a special day for me when I went to visit Sharon’s house. Every time I walk by the houses in my community, there are so many amazing gardens at each house.
And today I was so lucky that I could go to Sharon’s house, and I had such a nice day.
This is Sharon’s beautiful garden.
It is really nice, and I had a wonderful relaxing here.
Sharon is a nice lady. She looks so young and she is kind hearted.
She always would like to help us when we are in need.
Sharon also made a local American dinner for us. To be honest, the burger is much better than White Castle’s lol, which I am eating almost every day.
It was such an unforgettable afternoon. We kept talking and laughing.
When I walked into the house, I was also attracted by it. Every corner seems so special and beautiful. I even can’t imagine that this is a basement, but Sharon makes it like a bar, soooo cool!
I like Sharon’s home because it helps me know what local American homes look like.
I enjoyed this afternoon so much. Many thanks for inviting us to visit your home Sharon!
