    How ironic--I am from Lincoln, NE (I see you're in Blair, NE)! Jewell is about 45 mins north of Des Moines off I-35 (do you know where Story City is?). We actually live a bit south of it in the country but it is a fun little town!

    Now that's crazy. We're heading to Lincoln tomorrow to pick up something I ordered from an unfinished furniture store there. And yes, I know where Story City is. My hubby's brother and family lived there at one time. Small world. My hubby's family still lives in and around Des Moines.
