My longtime friend Sarah came for a visit this weekend, and after years of fifteen-minute catch ups, it was great to spend some quality time together!

I never properly blogged about our quick trip to Pennsylvania in early June, but whether it was recorded for prosperity on the blog or not, it still happened!
