These are pictures from yesterday’s walk around Rome.
No new pictures from today. Instead, I want to tell you about an adventure I took back to Florence!
Yesterday, when we were shopping, Rebekah was saddened to discover that a designer bag that she had seen in Florence was not available in Rome nor was it available in Naples (a city we’re going to visit later on our trip.)
So, she called Florence to see if they had any remaining. They said they did. She put it on hold.
With that in mind, in an effort to be the best husband I could be, today, I boarded a train, all by myself, from Rome to Florence to pick up this bag for my wife.
I left at 7am in the morning and didn’t return till after 3p. (Florence is 170 miles from Rome)
Keep in mind, Rebekah’s birthday is coming up in a couple of days and we are also going to be celebrating our 15-Year Wedding Anniversary on September 4. This is her gift.
While in Florence, I picked up another surprise gift for her as well.
Then, I went back to the steak place I went for my birthday and treated myself to a filet. (This trip wasn't completely altruistic. Ha!)
I then boarded the train back for Rome.
I came back home pretty exhausted, but Rebekah loved and was surprised by the additional gift I bought for her.. It was all worth it.
We went out to dinner at the same place we had lunch the day prior. More pizza. More pasta.
Slept like a baby.
