  • 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.
