When in Rome...or Florence

Two years ago this week I was on a flight to Florence for an art history winter session class with school. I went with one of my favorite people in the entire world, Miss Vanessa Jackson and we had the most fabulous time.

I feel in love with Florence and in love with Italy almost instantly, and if I have one regret from college, it's that I didn't spend a whole semester there.

We traveled to Rome, Sienna and Assisi. I walked through the Vatican and stood in awe at the foot of the Sistine Chapel. I saw The David, The Colosseum, The Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. I slept in the most perfect little Italian Apartment at the foot of the Duomo and I ate more gelatto, pasta and cheese than one person should ever consume and I most definitely drank enough wine for a lifetime.

It was incredible and I have been dying to go back. Until that day, I have my pictures. I thought I would share a few with you...

This is my view from my apartment in perfect is that!

The most adorable pink Vespa in Rome!

Overlooking the Ponte Vecchio with Vanessa!!!

The Colosseum in was the only day it didn't rain!
