I just wanted to let you know that we're currently alive and well in Florence, Italy.
It sure was neat to see the looks on the faces of Grandma and Grandpa when their eyes met the Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore) for the first time.
For a minute, I was worried I might have to perform CPR. Their jaws were dropped in awe, and I don't think either of them breathed for at least five minutes.
Understandably, Florence can have that effect on people...
