Snapshots from a summer day in Florence

We’re getting acclimated to our new daily routines in our new city. MaryKate heads to Sacred Art School for studio and class each morning, where they get underway at 10am. I have the reverse of a typical schedule since I’m working remotely on Washington, DC-time—meaning I am free in the mornings and early afternoons, and that my work day starts at 3pm Florence-time which is 9am Washington time. And it means that on most days, my work day is wrapping up at 11pm, which affords just the right window to get 7 or so hours sleep.

Today was the perfect summer day—brilliant blues and morning light, dramatic twilight hues and shadows, and nighttime thunder and rain showers.
