The Summer of Reunions

Based on my own summer and lots of people I've talked to, this has been the Summer of Reunions. Mine started off with a family reunion (Photo 1). My grandma, Mama Billie (pictured in the pink shirt), rented out an entire B&B a few miles from my house and filled it with about 35 of us from UT, TX, FL, CO, and NM for a whole week.

Next came a reunion for my ad agency (Photo 2). When I first moved to Utah, I worked for the most incredible high tech advertising agency ev-ah! It was called DSW and had headquarters in Salt Lake City as well as San Francisco. Well, unfortunately, all great things must end and soon after I quit to stay home with my son and freelance, the entire company went under. But many of us kept in touch and we had a reunion at the fast food restaurant right across the street from where the agency used to be located. (Which is, as an interesting tidbit you can use to sound smart, the parking lot that was hit by the only tornado to ever hit Utah.)

Then came my husband's high school reunion, which was held at a restaurant only a couple of miles from my home (Photo 3).

And last but not least, my own high school reunion, which was just on the south side of Denver (Photos 4 and 5). It was so great to see my high school friends again and of course with that came remembering what it was like back then. Kind of scary, really. :) Anyway, this has been a whirlwind of a summer and though I'd like the warm weather to continue for quite a while more, I have to say I'm looking forward to the more regimented schedule that comes with the fall.

How about you? Any reunions to speak of? Do you go to yours?

The running theme in all of these picture, Wendy, is how beautiful and glowing you look!

I haven't had any official reunions this summer, but it's been great having my college kids home, and visiting with different groups and friends and family.

As always you're much too kind, Tina. I'm glad you're having time with your college kids and other family and friends this time of year!

Wendy, you look adorable as usual. I holding out hope for a 25th class reunion since our class didn't have one this year. :)

Too bad, Steph. We want to have a 25 year one too, because we had so much fun. :)
