From the Archives: Firenze Forever!

Our 4th day in Italy was spent in Florence (the first three were spent in Rome). We took an early train from Rome and got to the Tuscan capital way before noon. We only spent one night here but I really wish we had a longer stay. It’s not as crazy touristy and it’s just so picturesque.

You know that movie Under the Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane? Where her character went on vacation in Tuscany and just decided to impulsively buy a decrepit villa? I GET IT.

That one time I Coveteur’d myself.

If you’ve ever seen Along Came Polly, you’ll know that me Coveteur-ing myself is akin to Phillip Seymour-Hoffman’s character hiring a camera crew to do an E! True Hollywood Story on himself. You know what they say, if want something done, you’ve got to do it yourself. I’m sure that saying counts for Coveteur features.

I love furnishing for the holidays. The smell of the tree, the twinkle lights, all the shiny things! Of course, when it comes to decorating, I’m more or a purist: I limit myself to white lights, gold and silver ornaments, & absolutely no colors because it clashes with my decor. So anyway, I figured I’d share photos of the new apartment in all its festive glory.

Also, below is an amazing photo that took about 938745987 takes. I can’t help it I’m so photogenic.
