Florence is a perfect city: it’s modern, yet it’s historic Renaissance roots seep through every which way you turn. It’s beautiful; it’s romantic; and the food is delicious. We spent our time in the center of the city, visiting the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Loggia dei Lanzi and the Ponte Vecchio. We also visited the Boboli Gardens, … Continue reading Fierce Firenze
When I saw this dress, I knew I had to have it for our trip to Italy! The color is perfect for summer and the cut-outs are bold, but not over the top. I think the high-low length and the flowing nature of the dress make up for it. I can’t lie, I was a … Continue reading Fierce Firenze…What I wore

Similarly, Montepulciano is also at the top of a mountain, but the streets of the town wind themselves up to the peak, where the views are breathtaking. … Continue reading 2 towns, 1 day
Right down the hill from our villa was the Cantalici winery, where we took a tour and went wine tasting.

Contrary to the rules of being a white girl, I had actually never been wine tasting … Continue reading Wine tasting at Cantalici
