Strolling the ancient streets of Florence with my best friends searching for the yummiest gelato made this one of my favorite trips yet. Florence is my favorite city in the world. Distant music carries through the cobblestone streets, the ancient architecture literally takes your breath away, and the handmade pasta is delicious. We spent several days in an Airbnb that overlooked the dome of Florence, and we woke up to the church bells every morning. That was my favorite part of the trip. I felt immersed in the culture and truly present. We drove out to Tuscany the second half of the trip and stayed at Villa Barberino. (Super dreamy!) I could get lost in the rolling hills of Tuscany. I already can’t wait to go back. The last 10 photos are of Emma and I taken by my best friend, Catherine Masters.
