Girl in Florence

A Tuscan Texan immersed in Florentine life

Happy Thanksgiving from Girl in Florence

While I honestly can’t remember the last time I actually spent Thanksgiving with my family, tis the life of a maybe-forever expat, I do however still value the holiday – or rather any day that prompts you to reflect on the things you should be grateful for. Personally, I truly feel thankful to have so many amazing people in my world, a career path I adore and a life that keeps on surprising me, especially this year.


Also , it goes without saying {but of course I will still say it} – I am very very grateful for this blog and for the people who take time out of their day, their life, to actually read it. I never imagined to have more than a few family members and friends following this blog and this year has been such an amazing experience. It has really motivated me to continue writing, sharing – and most of all, experiencing. This involves a huge sacrifice of drinking tons of wine and eating a plethora of wonderful food. So again, Thank you for enjoying Girl in Florence and supporting me on this blogging journey that I hope continues forever…

Or as long as Italy doesn’t kick me out anytime soon {anyone have questura connections?}.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, we had our first in Italy and the birds were most impressive, however, I’m not as fast at blogging!

  2. I’m an Australian so Thanksgiving isn’t one of the holidays we celebrate but I am thankful for this wonderful blog that takes me in my imagination to my favourite city in the world. I can’t wait to be back. Only 4 more weeks to go … but I’m not counting 🙂

  3. Thank you for your wonderful, interesting, and sometimes provocative blog. I’m a new subscriber and I enjoyed it very much. Grazie!

Welcome to my personal blog by a curious American girl living and working between Zug, Switzerland and Florence, Italy with my husband Nico, our newborn Annabelle and Ginger the beagle. This space is primarily to share about my love for Italy (currently on a 13 year romance) with a fair amount of real talk, practical advice, travel suggestions and adjusting to a new culture (Switzerland).
