Honeymoon: Florence, Italy

Florence was the next beautiful stop on our honeymoon!
We only had one day to spend here... so of course we hit a few big sights, and spent the rest of the day shopping and looking around at all of the amazing leather stores.
Sadly, we didn't take as many pictures... I was too preoccupied with the shopping ;)
The replica of the David statue
Gorgeous architecture in every direction!
I loved the designs on this building... not to mention, it's huge!
Taking a little break from the shopping :)
There were so many cool leather shops.  We ended up finding a couple of great stores with clocks for our nephews.  I also found a great purse!  It was so fun spending the day in beautiful Florence!

I love Florence. Such a beautiful place with BEAUTIFUL shoe stores! I bought boots and a jacket there that I still wear a couple of years later.

If you have a chance, go back and spend several days there. If you can catch the real David do that too, breathtaking.
