We started the day with a major bummer: Bradley left for home bright and early, which makes me really sad. I miss him already and I'm jealous that he gets to see our pooch and smoosh his little Louie face. There are a ton of dogs in Europe, by the way, and people bring them everywhere with them. We have FaceTimed with Lou a couple times to make us (me) feel better... but I digress. Anyway, I miss my husband a lot. Today's drizzly, cold weather matched the gloominess of Bradley's ...
... so we didn't go in. Hopefully it will be less crowded during the week. We kept going until we got to Ponte Vecchio, which is a 13th-century bridge with shops and restaurants all along it.

... Plus we had a few glasses of wine. Everything was easy but I don't have the upper body strength to roll out the pasta dough. I think those Italian Mamas have me beat there -- In true American form, I need a Kitchen Aid. At the end of class the Chef asked me out for that evening.
