The year ahead

I havenít written as much on my blog as I would have wanted to this year. I actually did write a lot for my blog, but in the end didnít publish what I wrote. I was unsure about how to manage my two blogs and I finally came to the conclusion that I have to separate them a bit more. I will now concentrate only on Florence in this blog. I, of course, couldnít help but share my beloved city with you all, which is why I took a lot of photos of Florence and shared them on my Instagram account.

I will definitely be writing and posting much more in 2015. There were times when I wasnít sure what I wrote would be of interest and in that doubt, I decided not to publish much. I had also been floundering a bit with a couple of other writing projects and that took up a lot of my time and mental space. In the my other blog, My Heart in Two Places, I will be writing more about being an expat in both Florence and Paris as well as discussing a little bit about my writing projects. I have been rather secretive about my writing projects, but Iíve realized that they might be of interested to some people. If so, you can read about it on my other blog.

I enjoy my life in both cities immensely; however, no place is like Florence. I canít possibly imagine my life not being in Florence because my beloved city continually fills me up with great love, inspiration, and joy. I am bonded to Florence almost as if she were a part of me.

Iíll be in Florence tomorrow and am looking forward to celebrating the end of 2014 and the arrival of 2015.

Thank you all for your patience while I figured out what I would do next. I hope that you will enjoy reading about my beloved city as well as seeing the photos that I take.
