how to spend a week in des moines according to erika

Our favorite writer “living in Brooklyn by way of Iowa” recently visited her home state and composed a list of the things she did throughout the week. It’s charming, personal, and familiar in the best ways. Excerpt below and link to the whole post right here:

“Wear sunglasses into Fleur Cinema for an afternoon showing of a movie you’ve already seen.

Fill an extra-wide cart with groceries from Hy-Vee; opt to have them carried to your car.

Bake a Pear and Almond Tart and freeze it for your brother’s belated birthday celebrations.”
