Every year the Williams Family (a family that used to be in my home ward growing up but then moved to Utah my sophomore year of high school) throw a Santa Barbara Reunion at their home in Orem for all the people from Santa Barbara that now live in Utah. They always make enchilada's and then people bring sides and desserts. It is usually held at the beginning of December, but the Williams are leaving for a mission, so they did it early this year. That was this past Sunday. Everyone has a great time catching up and telling everyone what they are doing currently with their life and then we sing Christmas songs (this time was no exception). It is always nice to get together with people from Santa Barbara in Utah... it makes me feel like I am not so far away from home to see so many friends that I grew up with. I got so busy chatting with Katie and Violet (we grew up together since we were in elementary school) that I did not take pictures. I know... shocker. Don't fear, I have pictures from a past year. PLUS, I used to throw SB reunions with my age group pretty regularly, so I have pictures from those gatherings as well! So here are some old pictures with my awesome Santa Barbara friends in which I am very thankful for and glad that we all stay in touch.
