Years ago we visited Florence, Italy – but only for a week. One week is not long enough! When it came time to plan a longer stay, we hoped Beth’s brother, Tom, and his wife, Barbara, would join us.
Beth and Tom’s parents died many years ago, and Tom inherited Mom’s wedding ring. When Tom married Barbara 26 years ago, they used that same gold ring from Florence.
Could we convince Tom and Barbara to join us in Florence? We searched a year in advance for the perfect AirBnB apartment to share, and we found it! Beth wrote an email to Tom and Barbara and invited them to join us. They immediately accepted.
So, a year later, we all headed over to the medieval bridge, Ponte Vecchio, in Florence.
What a lovely moment! We couldn’t believe we were all in Florence together.
It was a sentimental and sweet journey for all of us that started on a bridge 73 years ago in Florence, Italy.
