Spring Has Arrived in Florence!


Yesterday Chia and I walked along the river in such nice, warm sunshine. Although I pass by this statue of David often (this is a replica- real one is inside the Accademia), I couldn’t resist taking a photo in the spring light.

And we are about to celebrate Chia’s 8th birthday! She was such a cute little puppy when we brought her home at 6 weeks.

This week my friend and I took a great cooking class here in town. As I waited to meet her, I found this gorgeous dress in the Valentino window. Incredible detail and so different! And so expensive! Fun to look though.

In the cooking class made tortellini from scratch, stuffed with artichoke/cheese puree and topped with fresh tomato/basil sauce. So yummy and so much work!abbey and maren cooking

This evening I will be going outside of Florence to visit an elderly leather craftsman. His one of a kind, handmade bags are works of art, and I hope to bring at least a dozen back to Florence with me to show my clients. I am sure that I will keep one for myself as well….. Will post photos next week!
