Aaron, Ethan, and I just got back from ten glorious (and hot) days in Italy. We flew into Milan, where I met my friend Giuditta for coffee. Giudi and I became friends in Venice six years ago when I lived there. We used to meet for coffee everyday and speak in Italian and English--those are the best memories. It was great to catch up and this time she got to meet Ethan.
After we left Milan, we spent the next eight nights in Florence at a very small and cozy hotel near the center of town. Each day we walked hours on end going to museums, shops, restaurants, and churches. I loved roaming the streets that I know so well.
On one of our first nights in Florence, Ethan initiated the cutest game with us. He sticks out his tongue, we mimic him, and he laughs. This was definitely one of the trip's highlights.
It was so hot in Florence that anytime we wanted a picture with Ethan, we just rolled the stroller into the picture. Aaron took this picture at our hotel.
