A beautiful ballade in the sunshine this morning has me happy from the inside out. Félix and I talked projects and our future. We introduced Clover to some friendly sheep. He greeted them with lots of smiles and baby babble. A good start to the weekend.

Yesterday, Dean and I went to see the most recent Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris. What an escape, a beautiful blend of fantasy and reality. I can't say enough good things about it, the characters, the plot, the costumes, the casting. We both left the theater grinning. It has been so long since we've gone to see a film. We used to go often, especially when we were living in Annecy just steps away from the independant cinema. I'm so glad we chose this one as our initiation back into avid movie-goers.

It has been a bit dreary around here. The past 24 hours straight it poured non-stop. This morning though, there was a little break of sunshine. a little ray of hope. It seems to mimic my mood. I must start exercising again, a good kick of endorphins to make me feel like I can accomplish anything. I need a little ray of sunshine to get me back into it. Or maybe, just a little bit of soleil in gym bag form? I think this one from ASOS would do the trick.
We had a great time traipsing all around Tuscany. The Mediterranean was bluer than I remembered possible. Pisa was great fun and lived up to the hype. Florence was great as ever. We stayed in an apartment that was part of an old renovated brick factory. The grounds were lovely and I understand why so many people dream of a villa in the tuscan countryside. It has been hard to get back into the swing of things at home, but I suppose that's the sign of good vacation, right?
