Masthead header bio picture
  • On July 20th, 2014 I pedaled away from home on my biggest adventure yet. I rode my bicycle from Kansas to the Pacific Ocean. From 104 to 30 degree days, through national parks, up countless mountain passes and over the Continental Divide at least 7 times.

    The biggest lessons I learned are that I'm capable of so much more than I know and that PEOPLE ARE SO GOOD. If you'd like to read about the trip you can find it right here.

    Thanks for following along.
    Peace, Love and Bicycles,

Florence, Day 14

Yesterday afternoon we went to Galleria dell’Accademia I didn’t take any photos earlier in the day because I assumed, wrongly, that I would be able to take non-flash photos at the gallery. I’m not a huge art person, especially when it comes to religious paintings.. there’s only so many pictures I can look at of crucifixions and the like. My favorite part, aside from David, was defnitely the room with all the sculptures and plaster busts.

Before leaving, I captured a few adorable picture of Julia getting bundled up for the outing. Just as with the rest of Europe, it is darn cold here.

I can’t get enough of the left photo. Is that not THE cutest thing ever? Also, we joke that Julia looks a bit like Randy from A Christmas Story.

EEeeee! I just love my new boots.

A couple more photos of the Duomo. The magnitude of this thing is just unreal and pictures can’t even come close to doing it justice. I’ll be renting a wide angle lens soon to capture some better photos of the entire thing, but for now my 50mm is the widest I have.


Last, but not least, is a short clip of the goofball being silly in the middle of dell’Accademia. It is a good thing we were pretty much the only ones there. 😉

    Emily Becker - Hi Katelyn – This is Susie’s friend Emily, we met briefly the weekend in October when we all got the stomach plague (may it never be mentioned again.) I love your blog! It’s wonderful, and you’re a great photographer. Say hi to Suz & Andy, and keep the photos of Jules coming! :-) Thanks!
