Florence looking out from the Pont Vecchio on Christmas Eve Morning.
French Husband, Chelsea, Sacha and I drove to Florence to spend the week before Christmas together.
With 62 museums and a man who could spend half the morning looking at one painting... we figured if it rained we would have plenty to do. It never rained. Have your feet ever gone numb from walking?
We spent five hours in Uffizi museum and it felt like an hour, unbelievable. Have you ever cried in a museum?
It wasn't my first time to Florence, yet it felt different going there with my family.
Over thirty years ago I had my long hair cut and thrown into the river off of the Pont Vecchio.
Michelangelo’s statue of David was originally meant to stand on one of the pedestals near the cupola of the Duomo. But when David was completed it was considered far too beautiful to be hidden away to be out of view.
The Duomo is massive, the statue of David would have looked like a thumbnail, instead he is a massive hunk of splendor.
The Christmas decor was graceful, elegant worthy of Florence's beauty.
We rented an apartment that was an easy ten minute walk from the center.
If you ever need a place to stay let me know and I will send you the address.

After looking at statues we found an empty alcove to do our statue take..

Oh me giving my feet a break.
