Making Headway...



Last weekend we took a major stride in getting details squared away for the wedding in April. We purchased our plane tickets to Florence (ours and my parents'). We are flying out of Houston thru Paris to Florence (roundtrip) via AirFrance. Since purchasing the tickets I've heard great things about the airline, and honestly, whenever I fly overseas I always have the best flight experiences. Everything from hot towels for your face, chocolate treats, newspapers, wine samplings, and great meals.

So I'm excited that that step is out of the way, I was starting to stress if we should wait to buy them or do it now. You never know if prices will go up or down...however if they do go down I'll be sure to contact the airline to have the difference refunded. Anybody ever have any luck with this?

Also, we've squared away the apartment we're going to stay in for the week we'll be in Florence. It's a studio apartment for $550 per week which I think is splendid. And it's on Via Chiara near Mercato Centrale, which I think is a sign being that Chiara is the name I've picked out already for our future daughter. One thing at a time right?

Attached to this post our pics of the studio we're going to put a 50% deposit on.
