Florence, Italy!

Happy Sunday!! 

I hope everyone has had a great week. My husband and I returned from Florence on Monday and it has taken me this long to get out of vacation mode. I believe I have almost caught up with all my comments and my reviews, so progress is being made! Daylight Savings Time finally hit Italy today and we celebrated by sleeping in until 9:30am. Even the dog slept in, which is unusual for her. Of course it could have to do with the fact that we allowed her on the bed this morning. A comfortable human bed always equals more quality shut eye for my favorite canine.

I wanted to share a few pictures of Florence, Italy. It was so gorgeous. And we took a day out of our trip to explore a little bit of the Tuscany region. I am so thankful that I live in a place with such beauty. We will only be here another 2-4 years so I plan on soaking up every beautiful minute that I am here.








Hope you guys have an amazing week!

    1. Oh yes Shannon, of course I did! It's cheesy, but a total requirement for visiting.

  7. Stupendi! Sounds like you had a lovely time in Toscana, and the weather was behaving too (the first time I was in Firenze it was grey and rainy, the second time it was nice and sunny) :) Never got a chance to go to Pisa though (I was planning to but the student protests were happening at the time so I scratched that plan, forgot where I ended up going instead, lol). Thanks for sharing this with us! :)

    1. Thank you! Yes, the weather was so good! There was a chance of rain for the day we were scheduled to go to Tuscany, but luckily the weather held out. It was cloudy part of the day, but for the most part the sun was shining. Beautiful!
