Girl in Florence aka Georgette Jupe

I started this blog as a writing outlet for me to share what it is I adore about the beautiful city of Florence and Italy also sharing travel tips and stories along the way. Now 'Girl in Florence' includes advice for Florence, artisan features, interviews with locals, tips for life in Italy and travel posts from all over Europe. I'd love to think of myself as a fearless badass but If I am keeping it 100% real on this blog a quote that I sort of live by is"I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." I hope you enjoy this journey with me.

Cacao Mag – Taiwan

Yay for fun news! After a pretty relaxing Christmas eating way too much food with my adopted Italian family and missing home, I got a really awesome surprise in the mail today. A short story I was asked to submit to a magazine based in Taiwan (with Scandinavian roots) was published and they sent me a copy of the magazine in print {also drawing a very cute “Merry Xmas” on the packaging nice!}. Honestly it was like Christmas morning for this girl, especially since it was in English and… Chinese! A real accomplishment especially since it really is such a beautiful magazine. Think high-resolution gorgeous photos and stories from artists and people living in those cities telling their stories. I am still pouring over the other submissions.

About Me

Hi There!

Ciao, I'm a curious American "Tuscan Texan" who calls Florence, Italy home for the past 11 years. I am the editor at Italy Magazine and I also work as an established digital social media marketing strategist (5+ years) as well as a freelance writer. My bylines have appeared in Lonely Planet, Luxos Magazine, and International Living. This blog is my way to share what life is like living and working abroad, as well as provide up-to-date true advice on traveling and living in Italy, weekend trips around Europe, and a monthly roundup of interesting events. I'm married to a wonderful Frenchman and we have a Florentine beagle who rules the household. Keep in touch with our adventures with your favorite glass of franciacorta or espresso!
