It’s Saturday, it’s sunny, I’m making yummy coffee, and I get to see my good high school buddy for the first time in almost 2 years…It’s a good day. Sarah Hooley, one of my best friends in high school, is a Mennonite farm girl from Idaho. We were choir buddies in high school, traveled to Washington D.C. where she eventually returned to do an internship in peacebuilding, spent a week in Canada helping our other good friend, Bre, marry a wonderful German man, and used our honor cuts to skip class and go to The Gilbert House. She’s a sweet, hardworking woman who gets up with the sun to help on her families farm, loves fresh veggies, has a passion for mediation and peacebuilding, and can sing a mean alto line in any hymn. I’m excited because Sarah is in town for the weekend and I get to see her! We’re going contra dancing tonight. I’m not really sure exactly what contra dancing is, but Sarah enjoys it so it must be fun. As far as I can tell, it’s similar to square dancing. I guess I’ll know for sure after tonight!
