chocolate croissants & wine.

Yup, chocolate croissants and wine will be my diet for 8 days because...
Guy & I are going to Italy!!!!!!!
Can you tell I'm excited? I've been dreaming about booking this trip for a year now and finally booked our flights this week. We will be flying to Florence Italy October 3rd -12th. I couldn't be more excited. It was a big decision but we both decided life is too short and we don't have anything tying us down so why not. I'm so happy I'm with someone that enjoys travel as much as I do. I'm very lucky.
{we're going to use Florence as our home base and take day trips from there. we've heard nothing but amazing things about Florence. I mean come on, look at this picture!}

{I can't wait to walk the streets, pop into a cafe and people watch}

{um, hi. look at those buildings. they're amazing!}

{one thing we're sure of is doing a wine tour in Tuscany}
I could go on and on. I feel so lucky to be able to take a trip like this. We absolutely won't take it for granted and will spend the next 6 months looking forward to it.
On a more immediate note, hope you all enjoy your weekend!! Spring weather has arrived in Charleston so I'll be outside as much as I can be!
xoxo

I'm so jealous! I've wanted to visit Tuscany (and maybe buy and renovate an old house) since I first saw Under the Tuscan Sun. I know, typical, but I can't help myself! How fun for you two!!!

Make sure to visit Sienna while you're there- great church with amazing mosaics there. Little less touristy than Florence can be, although you're definitly gonna be there at a good time to avoid the crowds. Enjoy and be sure to post tons of pics and reviews!
