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.

Happy Easter from Girl in Florence!


cheese dreamYou know that rare time in real life when you see food turn out better than a repin on Pinterest? Well this was most definitely one of those moments. Thanks to Lavitaebellablog, we dined on scrumptious snacks this past Saturday night and I am still dreaming of that Pear and wine chutney!

I want to wish you all a very Happy Easter from Florence, Italy! Whether or not you actually celebrate  this holiday with eggs and lamb doesn’t matter. I for one am enjoying being super lazy while heading to an Easter-aperitivo-dinner at a friends later on tonight. Tomorrow in Italy is a holiday – ‘pasquetta’ in Italian or ‘little Easter’ and I am most certainly not complaining about a short week {likely filled with rain and too much work} since next weekend this girl is going to Barcelona for a few days.

In the meantime, I found this hilarious – yet horrifying of the creepiest Easter bunnies known to mankind. Warning, side effects of seeing this post may traumatize any sweet imagination you may have about bunnies in general.

Buona Pasqua e Happy Easter! I want to hear from you guys? What are your plans this Sunday/Monday?

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!
