I'll admit it, there are some days I feel ridiculously spoiled to be living in a gorgeous city like Florence. Today was one of those days.

After taking care of a few errands (and braving the crowds of people in the city center), we walked to the weekly flower market that pops up right outside of the post office in Piazza della Repubblica. The colors were so inspiring and beautiful. Spring is definitely in the air.

As you can see from the last photo, we also treated ourselves to some gelato. In the winter when I need a gelato fix I tend toward crema or tiramasu, which you can see in the photo. But, with the temperatures changing it's about time I switched up my gelato order, too. Mango and fragole are definitely on the horizon!
