Like many Americans today, Candace Cameron Bure is feeling extra thankful to be living in America. The “Fuller House” star took to social media to share her gratitude for the Fourth of July.
“Happy 4th of July,” she began her post on Instagram. “God Bless the United States of America #USA The greatest country in the world because of the FREEDOM we have, which God gives and can take away (Job 12:23.) Happy Birthday #USA!!! We celebrate you and love you!”
Bure is also feeling thankful for her former “Full House” family for helping her find her husband, Valeri Bure.
On June 22, her 25th wedding anniversary, Bure told the story about how she first met her husband. On Instagram, she posted that her “Full House” costar Dave Coulier played in a charity hockey game and invited the show’s cast to come. After briefly meeting her future husband, Coulier introduced him to Bure, and it was a fairytale after that.
That night, Coulier also invited “Full House” stars Bob Saget and Lori Loughlin, and all three played a part in the couple’s introduction. On Tuesday, Candace shared photos of the special moment.
“In light of our 25th wedding anniversary, I did some internet digging,” the 45-year-old captioned the pics. “The first photo is the night I was introduced and met my future husband, Valeri Bure. This photo was taken in 1994 at the Luc Robitaille charity hockey game @dcoulier invited @bobsaget, Lori Loughlin and me to.”

She added, “Do you see Lori and me watching the game?! Swipe to the third photo. Centered is a super cute, blonde haired, extremely talented Russian pro hockey player in the blue helmet talking with his talented super star brother, Pavel.”
She continued: “Wow. I’ve never seen photos 2 and 3 before!! Thank you internet for the incredible captured memories! … Thank you @dcoulier for taking me to my first hockey game. Thank you Lori for being my wing woman and thank you @bobsaget for watching out for me like a dad.”
Bure’s former on-screen family also reminisced about that night. “I’m your #cupid Love you and Val,” Couiler replied. “When Val gave you his sweaty jersey after the game I knew it was a done deal. Love you. And Val!!!️” Saget wrote.
However, one cast member missing from the comments was Loughlin. She does not have a verified Instagram account at the time.
In 2020, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were involved in the nationwide college admissions scandal. A judge sentenced them to jail for paying $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia and Isabella, into the University of Southern California.
