|With my Grandmother in her hometown of Dubuque, Iowa|
Dubuque is very special to me because I spent nearly every summer there visiting my grandparents. There is just something family-oriented and calming about people in Iowa. I believe that even though I've relocated to the east coast, my Midwestern roots are incredibly prevalent. I say hello to strangers. I return phone calls and emails. I'm very laid back and open-minded. And of course, I love those Chiefs, Rams, Royals and Cardinals!
This photo is with my grandmother in Dubuque. I admire my grandmother so much. She is an incredible listener, a great cook, and remembers every birthday - even with nine children and 12 grandchildren. She has a strong will and is always smiling! Love you gramma, and hope to be back soon.
Cheers! - Laura
