The rush of scurrying about Italy for a summer leaves me breathlessly nostalgic. One highlight of the summer was S's turn to visit Italy - his first ever time - and watching the absolute magic of the cities, sights, and foods sink into him. We had an (almost) impossibly long to do list, but I proudly can say that we checked most things off. I was proud because I was kind of an unofficial tour guide,
cappo di gruppo
, for a week - which had its trying times. For instance my stupid idea to tackle Rome in only one day left me exhausted and frazzled to say the least. Other times were much less rigorous and
. Such as our beautiful nights in Florence. Wine tasting in Montalcino and Montepulciano. I think my love
for Tuscany rubbed off on S.
And so, I give you, a little taste of our Italian travels!
