Ciao! Welcome to my blog. My name is Laura DeLaforgue. I live in Austin, Texas. I always say that Austin is my home away from home however, because Florence is my true home.
So much of my life changed on the eve and the event of my 50th birthday. That point of time in my life and the events that followed are why Florence has become home in my heart, why this blog has been birthed, and why my story and this blog will god-willing grow and develop as my experiences and adventures in Florence and Tuscany continue to unfold.
Falling in love with Florence was the medicine that I needed at a critical point in my life. I am now reconnected with my love of art and my love of history. In beginning this blog, I have also rediscovered my love of writing. I can assure you that my writing will not always be grammatically correct (although I will try), but I promise to share my passions and experiences in an up-front and fun way!
Thank you for following my story. I hope that it brings you joy and inspires you to follow your heart!
