Caio Y'all !!!!!

October 11th through October 20th, 2008 . . . I was fortunate enough to visit parts of Italy with my two sisters, cousin, and brother-in-law . . . dh#2 stayed home to take care of my MIL . . .

We spent 6 days in Florence seeing the most incredible sights . . . Santa Croce was the first sight . . . this Franciscan church was begun in 1294 . . . the building itself . . . the paintings, scultures, tombs in the floor, were all incredibly beautiful . . . it is breathtaking to see it and imagine what it was like to have lived back then and all the artisans who created it and the patrons who financed it . . .
