We took the train from Florence to Rome. It was the most beautiful train ride. Everything looked just like a movie set. We sat across from the cutest kids who were from Rome but visiting their dad who lives in Florence. They spoke in the most beautiful Italian and did their homework the whole way home. We spent 2 days in Rome and the first day we shared with our friends Benj & Maddie. We took pictures in the streets and I got to wear my vintage red dress.We ate the best lasagna, which tasted like a bunch of angels thrown in a mixer with flour & sauce. The wine was made in house and the bread was again, like angels & flour. Delicious. Of course we had gelato & espresso..and I had the best donut of my life. We went to the Vatican, the Spanish steps, Colosseo, and a bunch of other important places that, due to my lack of history knowledge, I don’t know. My prince has a bunch of great pics on his phone and I will get those to you later. We left the country super early on New Year’s day so we watched the fireworks from our hotel. They went on for nearly an HOUR! It was beautiful as there are no firework regulations in Rome. It was like watching 30 Disney World fireworks displays all at once.
(Yes, that is us at the Pantheon)
And that was our trip!
We flew back into DC and the next morning, my husband had to fly back out to the West Coast. He will be moving here in 12days and we get the keys to our new place tomorrow!! I hope to get our home all set up before he gets here.
