FLORENCE MEMORIES / Postcards from Firenze

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday filled with delicious food (turkey, cranberry, and pumpkin pie, oh my!), good health, and bountiful memories and spent with your friends and family!  Did you try any new recipes for the big meal?  If you have something easy-peasy to share that I can try next year, I would love to hear it.  Can't partake in the turkey recipes just yet, those will have to wait another few years =P

I spent my entire holiday with everyone and everything I am thankful for.  Bright and early Thanksgiving morning my cousins and I went hiking at Joaquin Miller Park, celebrated together over a piping hot bowl of pho, and I ended the day with a hearty meal with Shane and his family.  On Friday I snuck in a little Black Friday shopping with momma before I had to do some stuff at work (a good reminder that I am thankful to have a job...). And Saturday and Sunday I had to nurse myself as I got hit with nausea, cramps, and fatigue.  Feeling much better now and ready to conquer the week!

As I going through pictures from my trip, I came across a few, alright a ton, that I wanted to share.  This first set of pictures are from our day trip to Florence via the Trenitalia train system that took us from Rome to Florence in about 1.5 hours.  Shane was not pleased that I had us up and out by 630am the day after we landed in Rome and even less pleased that our train back to Rome wasn't until 900pm. I say that was my stealthy way to get over the jetlag.  I hope you enjoy the pictures!

  1. I just scrapbooked some pages from my Italy trip over ten years ago, this brings back memories! And your photos are so much better :) Did you climb to the top of the Duomo? Do they let you do that still?

    1. Ah your scrapbooking mention reminds me that I should get started on the photobook for this trip, that will take a bit. Where else did you travel to while you guys were in Italy?

      They do still allow you to climb to the top of the Duomo but unfortunately we ran out of time before we could make it up. I could only make it up the Campanile di Giotto and barely made it back down without having a panic attack. Maybe next time I will try to do both (and on the same day!).
