Today, we have a special post from our Lead Associate Coordinator, Courtney Brust. It's special because she is getting married this Saturday.. and she is sharing her wedding planning experience and tips from a planner-turned-bride!Read More
It's the Friday before Christmas... and it truly is my favorite time of year! Of course now that my little team has grown - I went from one assistant in 2010, to three assistants in 2011 - I had to have a Sweetchic Holiday Party! Since everyone's social calendar is so full around the holidays, I decided to host a brunch so as to not compete with any other plans.Read More
We certainly liked Rome, but we were absolutely enchanted by Florence! Everything about it was better... the feeling of the medieval town, the views, the food, the gelato, the shopping, our hotel... everything!Read More
Buongiorno! Truthfully, we were completely underwhelmed by the food in Rome. Restaurants and cafes were everywhere, and yet nearly every restaurant served the same thing. We definitely had a better dining experience in Florence! We were also amazed at how everyone still dines outside (with the help of lots of heat lamps!), despite the fact that it was mid- November and quite chilly!
Dining outside like the Romans.
Lasagna and a white pizza (I like my pizza drenched in tomato sauce, so it was definitely lacking to me)
A beautiful bridge connecting downtown Rome and Vatican City. One of my favorite pictures!
Whenever I visit new cities, I love checking out the markets! Lovely fresh flowers...
Hats galore! Too bad I can't pull off hats at all, but that didn't stop me from trying on a few!
The stunning Piazza Navona!
Oh how I desperately miss the amazing cappuccinos we had every, single day!! Starbucks does not do this drink any justice whatsoever. *sigh* I miss them more than our daily gelatos, haha.
A sunny shot outside the Pantheon. There's my husband looking rather GQ! ;)
The famed Spanish Steps.
A perfect perch for people watching...
Climbed to the top of the Spanish Steps.
A cool glass display inside the Gucci store (we couldn't go to Italy and not check out Gucci!!)
Next up: Florence!
Happy December! Italy has been on my "must visit before we have kids!!" list for as long as I can remember, so I was excited to check this off! We spent 3 exciting days in Rome and 3 magical days in Florence, one of the must beautiful cities I have ever visited.Read More
