Italian Escapade!

We recently came back from a week’s journey in Milan and Florence. Needless to say it was fantastic and yes, by all means be jealous.

Climbing on top of Brunelleschi’s dome. Wandering in a maze of mirrors. Collecting paintings of decapitated heads and pretty ladies (Judith and Salome are the salt of my art museums). Taking a secret photo of the floor of La Cappella dei Principi. Spending the night in and learning to tie a bow-tie. Queuing for cheap seats at La Scala. Having a Negroni or two at Santo Spirito. Walking and looking and tasting and hearing, connecting and remembering.

I take it back. Don’t be jealous. Go see the world.

Just GO.

– Laura
