Destination: Belgium

The beer, the chocolate, the waffles...oh my!

We enjoyed a quick but amazing weekend in Ghent and Bruges, I highly recommend both. Bruges is the most beautiful city I have been to thus far; I was ready to move in by the time the weekend was over!

Dear Life

Dear Nox- About the haircut, I'm sorry

Dear Baking- I still hate you

Dear Friend- THANK YOU for you sweet and thoughtful package, you have no idea how it brightened my day, I think of you everyday... you know who you are.

Dear Spring Blossoms- You smell like heaven

Dear Daffodils- In German, your name is  "Osterglocken" or Easter Bells, I like that better

Dear Life- All is well

Destination: Florence

Ah, Florence. Like most people, my experiences of European destinations growing up were through the movies. "A Room with a View" and "Under the Tuscan Sun", along with some college art history courses were the inspiration for this trip. The gelato, pizza, steak and wine all met expectations (all according to Zach, since I was sick and couldn't taste anything). The sun was shining, and I suffered from serious orange tree envy, seriously, they are gigantic! 


The mother-ship of all things marble (Thank you Michelangelo)

Architecture to die for (Thank you Brunelleschi)

Leather- I enjoyed looking down at all of the gorgeous Italian leather shoes, not to mention the purses

David- from all points of view :)

Coffee gelato

Dogs, dogs and more dogs. I am soooo impressed with city dogs, the ones that walk perfectly on a leash, or don't even need a leash. My favorite was what looked like a 200 year old Italian women with her (what looked like) 200 year old dog, donning matching scarves...
