I know I've been posting a lot of "mini inspiration" articles lately, but when you travel, there are just so many things you see that make you draw a breath in awe or that make a little crafty part of your brain say, "I can totally recreate that." And when my friends and I were in Nebraska for my friend Martha's birthday, this glass chapel did both of those things!
It's the Holy Family Shrine located in Gretna, Nebraska, and it's right off I-80. We actually saw it from the interstate, which piqued our interest, and we decided to use our few extra hours to explore and learn. It's a quiet and peaceful space with another enclosed building serving as an entry room; the building and the chapel are connected by a stone pathway (bottom photo). I wish I'd gotten photos of the interior of the building and its gorgeous water pathway, but unfortunately I wasn't looking ahead. Anyway, enjoy the photos!
