Last Saturday in Florence (for now) 😦 Trying not to get too hung up on the fact and instead am enjoying the day! I slept in till 9:30, and Sasha & I headed to Ditta Oltrarno. We stopped by San Lorenzo to admire Isabel’s amazing outfit she designed and sewed! She is SO talented. She drew everything you see here by hand! I would so wear this out and about (she says it fits her). There were many other talented artists exhibiting their works they completed at LdM throughout the semester too.
Ditta brunch is the best brunch. Sasha and I journaled, talked about yesterday and summer and fall, and each had two coffees. Vasuhda joined as as well.
I made a list in my journal of Florence and home ‘equivalents.’ Here’s a few:
Florence → Vermont
Arno → Battenkill
Ditta/La Ménagère→ South St./Spiral/Brown Cow
Piazzale Michelangelo→ Nana & Pop’s backyard
Mercato→ Co-op and Farmers’ Market
Uffizi→ MASS MoCA
My Sugar/Edoardo’s→ Moxie’s/Battenkill Creamery/Ice Cream Man
This afternoon is dedicated to studying and resting before going out on the town for a final weekend hurrah. xo ~ e.
