Annnnnnnd we’re back!
See how quickly I did that?
I’m really trying to be better!
I have more spectacular photos of Florence!!! Hoooraaayyyy!
I do not, however, know the names of every statue and painting (or most really) as I am a shutterbug and am usually too busy to write them down.
I could look them up I suppose, but so could you! 😉
The battle of who looks more Roman…
My gorgeous husband deep in thought…
I love animals. Even LEGO Animals. ESPECIALLY LEGO animals!
There are even MORE photos to come! Stay tuned…
Well, it happened again! I was momentarily swallowed up by life and subsequently abandoned my blog.
Sorry for the delay, but as I’ll be working part-time and from home this month during the London Olympics, I shall have much more time to catch up on catching YOU up!
So where were we?
Florence is beyond amazing. It is simply breathtakingly mesmerizing.
I had heard that it was the best, and it truly is THE BEST.
I did not want to leave. AT ALL.
The food. The churches. The art. The gelato.
The AIR. THE WAY THAT EVERYTHING HAS A GOLDEN GLOW TO IT!!
The ease at which one can simply float about, slowly absorbing the day.
No hustle, no bustle…worlds away from the insanity that is London.
And, we were lucky enough to rent the most spectacular apartment right in the middle of everything in what used to be a convent dating back to the 16th century. Fresco ceilings and all. Antique furniture. Orange trees in our private garden.
A week was not long enough…but we did our very best to drink it all in…
Santa Maria Novella
Il Duomo di Firenze
Baptistery of St.John
There are ALOT more photos to come…sit tight and dream of your visit!!! xx
