Heavy heart Florence

I arrived to Florence, Italy, a few days ago. It really is a beautiful city with even more beautiful men and delicious food. Although it is saturated with tourists, it’s stunning. It’s somewhere I’d love to travel to with someone I am dating.

Everything about this place was made for couples. The delicious wine, the tiny little cafes, the romantic canals, the fresh gelato, street music and essence of the place.

I woke up this morning from a dream that I haven’t been able to shake all day.I’ll spare you the details, but it involved a very strange combination of my mother who has recently passed, and someone who until recently I was dating. These are two people I care about who I cannot have by my side. It made exploring the vibrant streets of Florence a chore and it’s utterly ridiculous.

Hopefully I wake up tomorrow in higher spirits.
