As if anyone ever needed a reason to visit Tuscany. We went on a whim, dropped the baby with Zia (auntie) and drove for a few hours north from Rome until the sun turned golden and the hills started to sprawl. When you visit a place you've only ever seen in pictures, it's like a dream comes to life. With every line of Cypress trees we passed, I could feel the stress of a million hectic days fade into the distance. It's the light that I remember the most...it was September, the hills were dry, the breeze was warm and when the sun dipped low, that beautiful golden light soaked into my body and hasn't left since.
