I am back form Italy- and had a really great time. I flew into Milan, and then took a train to Florence, where I met up with Laura. Her apartment was so cute, and we spent a fair amount of time out on her terrace. We did alot of walking around, and hanging out. It was a nice and relaxed trip. We did go to Cinque Terre for a night, and hiked some, and spent a day on the beach (i may have gotten a little too much sun). Every single thing I ate was delicious, and we got gelato several times. Wine at every meal- and it was sooo yummy. I baked a good old fashion american chocolate cake for the girls while I was there, because they had just finished their last semester. You can see all my pictures on my flickr, but here are my favs.
