Florence made me want to move to Italy. Well, that and the food. But, honestly friends, the history, art, architeture! I'd truly like to pack my bags and leave tomorrow. Not for forever, but just for a longer stay than a "visit". It was the true essence of what I thought Italy would be like.
-The train ride from Naples to Florence. All four of us knitting!
-Seeing the Duomo from our kitchen window and rooftop terrace.
-Placing the electric tea pot onto the burner and thinking I was going to catch the apartment on fire. (You should have seen the pour tea pot.)
-The delicious little dessert treats we found in the market.
-Strolling through the park hand in hand. (All four of us.)
-Climbing the stairs to the Bell Tower with my sisters.
-The interesting owner of La Giostra.
-When we ran into the guy from the leather store on his vespa and he wanted to give mom a ride.
-My heart to heart talk with my sister.
-Pear and gorgonzola ravioli.
-Watching our pizza being made in a quick minute.
-Eating lunch outside looking at Santa Croce.
-Hunting for coconut gelato like we had in Amalfi and finding it.
-Our rooftop happy hours.
-My sister's brain clicking with the bella cowl pattern.
-Having heart ache when my sister Lisa continued on her journey. And then my mom and my sister Shelly continued on theirs. Forever grateful for our treasured moments.
Pizza at Yellow Bar and Dinner at La Giostra.
Friends, we booked both of our places through Airbnb and couldn't be happier! SO much better than hotels.
