When my great grandparents of long ago left Germany for a new life in the United States, they moved to Iowa.
A few cities in Iowa hold family to us. Two with my grandma's history, another area with my grandfather's. This trip was to visit my grandmother's area of Iowa.
This weekend, a cousin of my dad was married in a church that means something to important to our family.
This church is church my grandma grew up going to, and the same church where my grandparents were married.
The wedding was beautiful. She sparkled in her dress, and he was as happy as could be.
