Week 1 in Firenze.

Happy Friday! well for me anyway...
I hope you all had a great week! Husband and I did so much this week. Yesterday was our one week anniversary in Firenze! So amazing!

Highlights of the week:
-We found a place to grocery shop. This is a big deal people!
-We have been cooking dinner in our home every night and having so much fun doing it!
-I chopped my hair off. This is the shortest it's even been! It's growing on me but I love it so far. It's fun, lighter and so much easier to manage! :)
-We found some bars that we feel will be our bars. I can't wait to be regulars.
-We bought a European blow dryer. Every time I used mine there was a mini firework show that would cause a black out in our house. Thank god I brought my straightener,  hair wand and curling iron. all I can not use. le sigh.
-We realized that living in the center is one of the loudest places to try and sleep. Is it necessary for people to scream down these tiny streets? Sing at the top of their lungs? Do construction at 6am? This is going to take some getting used to. We can hear e v e r y t h i n g.
-We hiked up to the Piazalle Michelangelo which are where the photos are from below. It was breath taking. I wish I could describe the feeling Florence gives me. I belong here. I love it here. I just wish all of our friends and family were here too. It's hard not knowing anyone.
-We went for a run around the river and in to areas we haven't been to yet outside of the center. It was surreal working out in our new city.
-Brandon bought me my very first Italian leather jacket and I'm obsessed. like I died. It's so yummy.
-Brandon and I have been able to spend so much time together without the stress of driving to downtown every day, working at a place where it was toxic and coming home to a waiting game of when would we be moving. It's nice to enjoy our marriage and go on dates and hold hands in Firenze. I have fallen in love all over again. :)
-Brandon booked a full day of wine tasting for my 30th where we will visit Chianti and go on a castle tour. WHAT? is that real? I'm so excited! This is going to be the best birthday ever!
-We went to the police station to register our long term stay in Florence. Feels so good!


That's my weekly updates so far. We have so many pictures to share. Stay tuned for this wild adventure to continue!



Brandon and I can't explain how much appreciate all of your support! Your positive energy and sweet messages make us feel so good!


Grazie!

I admire you guys so much for taking this leap. What an adventure to go on with your love. I just caught up on your last post. Soooo sad about your kitties, but amazing someone you trust is caring for them.

I'm sure there is so much to get used to. Not only are you in a new home but a new country! Those little comforts like a familiar grocery store & hair dryer are so necessary when there is all that other change going on.

Excited to keep following your adventures!

I love your hair! Buy an air purifier. It will clean the air and becuase of the white noise it makes when on it will block out a lot of the outside noise.

Sounds like you had a great week, I'm jealous, all I did was work, play xbox and blog!

this seriously makes me want to head back to Florence, it was definitely my favorite city in Italy.

and do tell which castle you're going to for your wine tour. i went to one in chianti that was so fun and so gorgeous and that sounds like the best way to ring in your 30th birthday!
