Greg and I celebrated our 19th anniversary yesterday (and over the weekend).... the highlight being a night at the newly opened, newly restored Frank Lloyd Wright Hotel in Mason City, Iowa. The only Wright designed hotel still standing... and it is right here in Iowa!
Greg and I both love the style of Wright's designs in buildings and furniture too.
Our neighbor friend here in Des Moines, Carolyn- her brother Randy Cram, who lives in Clear Lake, was part of the foundation who worked on this project-he is an architect.
There is soon to be a restaurant opened, and there also is a ballroom. Great for a wedding reception!
I can't rave enough about this place! Treat yourself sometime and spend the night. Mason City also has the Music Man Museum, a most wonderful art museum, and also a few other Wright houses in town.
Well worth a trip to north central Iowa!
PS: Since Mason City is only 30 miles from my hometown, we did drive over there first to have lunch with Mom and Dad. What a gorgeous day with temperatures in the low 80's. Mom and I went for a nice walk by the river enjoying the trees and sunshine.
