The Main Event: A Wedding

 We were pleased to be in Chicago to attend the wedding of Mr. Dub's brother David and the delightful Emma.
 It was an intimate event set in the lakefront mansion of Charles G. Dawes in Evanston.  Mr. Dawes was the 30th Vice President under Calvin Coolidge and won the 1925 Nobel Peace Prize.  His house is lovely, and has been made into a museum.  I was especially impressed to wander past his piano and see sheet music with Charles Dawes listed as the composer on display. We enjoyed meandering through the rooms in between the ceremony and dinner courses.
