I know that I shouldn’t be in the hotel room wrapped up in this robe, hair still wet, while the world and endless opportunity is passing by, but alas, here I am writing you.  Sight seeing can wait another 20 minutes.  We’re only a few days in, but I already have that fire inside my soul that only travel can ignite.  And something about London is different this time.  I can’t quite explain it, but it feels like I’m seeing the city from an entirely different perspective.  It’s drawing me in and I just feel like I need more time to get to know it a bit better.  Wait, am I starting a relationship with London?!?  This is major.

Back in the day, I used to LOVE the daybook‘s Awkward and Awesome Thursdays.  As I wrote this post, that was the exact direction things were going.  I looked at the calendar (yes, I had to look it up because I live a freelance life) and it just so happens to be Thursday.  So here, we are, about to be both awkward and awesome together, much like I am every single day.

Truthfully, Florence didn’t even make our original itinerary.  It was only added later on, when we ran our trip plans by people and they gasped in shock at the fact that we were skipping over their beloved Firenze.  It was a simple addition, we just shed one night off our Venice stay and opted for a quick 24 hours in Florence.  I really did feel a bit better about adding a brief glimpse of Tuscany to our schedule, and spoiler alert!  Everyone was right, Florence is a must.

Went shopping the other day because I may or may not need something new to wear for a VERY exciting event coming up (was that cryptic enough for you?  More details soon, just don’t want to jinx the tentative plans).  So mystery.  Much vague.  Anyway, I was finally allowing myself to purchase something new.  My treat!  I went from store to store and change room to change room and so much time passed that night fell, but I tell ya.  I left that darn mall with a white t-shirt and an overpriced hair elastic.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!  Alicia 6 years ago would have bought an entire new spring wardrobe.  Oh, how times have changed.  The good news is that I love the white tee and minimalism is soooo in.
