Florence. A Memory.

8/13/2012

In May 2004 I went to Florence. I met my friend Courtney who was studying there. We went to the Uffizi and the Duomo, we got two scoops of gelato a day. We drank a carafe of wine at lunch. And at dinner. We sat in cafes and people-watched for hours. And forgot the meaning of time. It was magnificent. A perfect memory.

I was in Florence in 2006 and have some amazing memories - gelato at every meal, going to the markets, visiting the different churches and galleries. I would love to go back!

I can't wait to visit Florence one day and eat gelato. I imagine I will probably people watch all day too.

Aw, this reminds me of when I went to Florence in 2009 - my first and only time there. I miss it so much! I wasn't blogging at the time so maybe I'll do a 'recap' three years later! Ha!

I have yet to make it to Italy but those are all the things I miss about Spain. Sometimes life can be too fast-paced here. :)

This almost perfectly describes a trip I took to Venice years ago.

That sounds like a superb memory. I have yet to make it to Italy but once the kiddos get old enough...I will eat my way through the country!
