My new blog marks the beginning of my new life. I had written in my ďLiving in FlorenceĒ blog that I felt as if I ended an entire book, not just a chapter of my life. So it is no surprise that I am now writing in a new blog as well. I carefully chose the day that I would start my new blog as well as the days of my first two entries. My dadís birthday was the day I chose to begin my new blog. My motherís birthday was the date I chose to publish my first entry on Paris because she loved Paris so much, and for my entry on Florence I chose Anna Maria Luisa deí Mediciís birthday. Anna Maria Luisa was the last of the Medici family who donated her familyís art collection to the city of Florence.
