July 24th, 2013 @ 2:50pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

Rolling green prairie, lightning bugs, the smell of sweet corn, the rumble of a farm vehicle going down main street. These are the sights and sounds of our summers in Iowa when we head back to John’s hometown and hang out with his family for a few weeks. While we usually get some work done […]
