Adam & I celebrated our third wedding anniversary on August 5. We were excited to have the opportunity to spend it in Italy this year, and knew for sure that we wanted to use the day as an excuse to break from the group. Florence seemed like a good choice. We’d been before, on our first trip to Italy 7 years ago, but it was the closest major city and one we were happy to return to.
Unfortunately, just as our train from Certaldo set off to Florence, it started raining. Then it started pouring. By the time we arrived, it was torrential. We were both in shorts and t-shirts and had one little umbrella between us. We had to go to the bathroom. We were hungry. It didn’t look good.
