Flatfooting and square dancing

Whitetop Band

I'm proud to report that I've so far met my New Year's resolution of taking one work day off per month in 2015. During the peak of weeding season, we did dodge a bit and take two Friday afternoons off per month instead of indulging in a full day all at once, but Mark said that counts. (He's easing me into taking time off gently.)

Kayla was my partner in crime during our most recent random holiday, providing moral support and acting as my dance partner at the square dancing class at Mountain Empire's Mountain Music School. We learned the (very) basics of both flatfooting and of the Virginia Reel and are all fired up to take another dance class soon. Next up: the classical Indian dance of Bharatha Natyam. Stay tuned!
