In LESS THAN A MONTH we will be off to the beautiful city of Florence for an entire (first time in 7 years child-free!) week!
Food! Art! Scenery! Architecture! Food! Shopping! Food! (Did I mention food?!?)
After mucho deliberation we've decided to stay at what looks to be a lovely little pensione right in the heart of the city, just a few meters from the Duomo, perfect for diving right into things in the morning and for afternoon breaks or dropping off packages mid-day.
(I suddenly feel the urge to run around the house singing Viva Italia, but I'll spare everyone. Especially my family and neighbors, who might turn around and have me committed, which would then spoil my vacation. Best not to take any chances...)
Instead I'll settle for a semi-quiet wahoooooo!!
