Santa Barbara will always remain the place that "we" started out. It is our true home, and if I could live there again, I would. The people are wonderful, and the beach always kept me in a good mood.
The 4th of July was the best because they used to (and probably still do) pop fireworks off on the beach. They had music, food, art, and the perfect weather to go with it all. Aaaaaah...memories. I'll just stick to my grill and blazing sun out here in Las Vegas for now.
