The Duomo.
The main tourist attraction for Firenze.

A cute little British couple took this pic for us.

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and kevin took me out to eat at a cute little 
restaurant downtown.  He also bought me flowers!  I call my flowers francesca (i'm sorry but i don't know what kind they are. it's very difficult for me to figure out italian flower names). Francesca now sits outside on my balcony.

A mini that we found in Firenze.

Sundays with Mindy

Everymorning i wake up to the sound of my phone. Actually my phone is set on silent and so it doesn't make any sounds. But the sound that my phone makes as it vibrates on the wood shelves next to my bed is truly terrible.
This morning it was kevin calling to make sure that we got our laundry in before rush hour. I have been in hour long laundry lines before.  Villa Aurora provides a free laundry service to those of us without funds to pay the 11 euro it costs to do laundry. The only problems with this little wonder is that our clothes are not returned to us for at least five days. For normal female types this is not a problem. But apparently i have lost clothes or i just never had that many and now i try to figure 
out if something is really dirty or if it could handle another weeks wear. last week i was dumb enough to hand in all but one of my pairs of pants. So i pretty much 
wore the same pants everysingle day for a week.
This morning i was able to beat the rush. After i had turned in laundry, picked up laundry, sorted laundry, and put it away, kevin and i met to continue our Star Trek Marathon. Ok so, so far we've only watched three movies and no episodes, but for the people we are around we are true nerds.
ok well it's supper time. must go. love.
