When I was a little girl I lived in Pella, Iowa. Pella is a small town south of Des Moines, Iowa. The town’s unique Dutch theme and quaint town square makes a great place to visit. I recently took a trip to my past and experienced things that I thought I forgot. As a young girl, my parents would take me to the town square where I would get donut holes and cookies from a local bakery called Jaarsma Bakey. Granted I haven’t been to this bakery in about seventeen years, but I got out of my car and knew exactly where it was located. I walked into this Bakery and instantly was filled with an aroma of pastries. I came for the legendary “Dutch Letter” pastry. Instead, I walked out with a box of six. The day was beautiful, sunny and warm. It was the perfect day to visit somewhere that has meaning to me. The town’s square is later filled with an abundant amount of tulips for the Tulip Festival in the Spring time. If your ever on a road trip, and looking for something unique and exciting to go visit, take a trip to this small, but tasteful town of ethnicity and treats!
