You Will Not Believe This!

YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS…..I STILL CAN’T..

when I traveled with K and Em here many years ago….I think they were 5 and 7ish……we spent two days in Florence…..I was walking them down a street and looked in a bar where there were many people having a good time……and I remember thinking how fun that looked and having a bittersweet feeling of where my life was at that time…..I then bought a jacket in a boutique a few doors down for a ton of money ….and I remember thinking that I shouldn’t do it but it had “life” and an arrow pointing forward on it….I bought it as a symbol to myself….that was a great trip but also tough…my first time out of the country and a lot of uncertainty in my life at the time….new life with the girls….new business…new home…new career…in the Napa Valley….I hold great memories from it but also bittersweet…..

Important to note : I had NO clue nor could have taken you to that boutique nor that bar if you would have asked….I couldn’t have even described them to you.

Are you ready for this?!

Fast forward to this journey…first day…..Our taxi dropped us off at our apartment and we settled in. Chris and I then went out to explore..turned left out the front door and began to soak it all in…I walked no more then two doors down and looked in at the jovial sounds coming from the Bar….I stopped…..and immediately knew….this was THE bar….and I looked across the street….and there was the boutique…..NO JOKE….We went into the bar and had a drink…I told Chris the story and we toasted…..because nothing in life is a coincidence. I knew at that point that this journey was a gift…and to enjoy it to its fullest….no matter what the days ahead may bring!
