I just loved how Jessie matched the gelateria!
They had amazing open-air markets. Besides my awesome sweatshirt, I also got two shirts (One saying, "Ciao Bella". How awesome is that?) and three scarves. Holler!
The Duomo & Bell Tower!
We hiked alllll the way to the top. It was so so so pretty.
Me and my Daddy at the top!
Amazing views? Um, yeah!
Little Miss Gorgeous, Jessie
Ahhh. The pizza. Oh my. It was so good! We went to this special place at least 3 times during our trip 'cause it was so amazing!
We would get our pizza to go, sit on these church steps, and look at this. So great.
My class with the Gates of Paradise! Each section of the doors has a different Bible story. :) This is my favorite group picture from the trip.
I.want.this.bike. And then I will bike all over Florence and be a happy camper! :D
Random ninja game while we wait in line? Yes please!
One of the days we walked up 50 million stairs. (Ok, so maybe not 50 million, more like 30 million. ;]) The views were great but I was exhausted!
Nick would always get to the top first. Heh. :P
The amazing views we had after reaching the top. I was in Florence heaven!
Family shot? I think yes!
And then we just sat... & looked at the amazing views... & were quiet... & soaked it all up.
Chloe! My philosophy quoting, fun loving, lip gloss wearing friend. :]
Katherine! My single ladies, camera rockin, and scrave shopping friend!
Me & my Momma!

David! We weren't allowed to take pictures, but I've never let a sign stop me from capturing a very important memory. He was incredible though! You could see the veins in his arms and legs. So.Fantastic.
The fooooood! Oh my goodness. Being the Food Network junkie that I am, the food market we found made me so stinkin' happy. The bread was so good!
These were the best ever. I give you the cream filled Bomboloni! The cream was sweet, but not too sweet, and I swear my Dad and I could have eaten six 'cause they were amazing!
He is the Bomboloni King. We liked them so much we had to get a picture and he was so nice!
Did I mention it was good?
Cute lil town. I like it there. :D
The Ponte Vecchio! We did not buy any jewelry, but the window shopping was very nice!
Random sitting-on-a-ledge-by-the-water-and-taking-pictures-of-Jessie-shoot. :P
And then we went into random alleys and sang. It was quite delightful. ^_^
On the way home!
Well, dear Florence, I miss you molto grande. But your memories will last forever. Bye for now!
