abreva l.lysine ice sleep prayers

Is there any greater victory than that over a cold sore?

Florence, Italy

I loved Florence. And just because I had a minor meltdown the night we arrived there (it'd been a long day and suddenly sleeping in a centuries-old convent turned hostel with 3 strangers really started to get my creeps out.) doesn't mean I didn't LOVE Florence. Probably because following that night was one of the most relaxing and awesome days of my life. I'm gonna stand by that statement. We woke up to a hail storm. Actually we woke up to a black bird in our room FREAKING OUT at 6am. But after that, we woke up to a hail storm. So decided to just have some hang out/internet time till it passed (idk, 1pm?)

Then we walked to the Duomo and up the 500? stairs to the top of it

To see incredible views like this

Those hills!

The entire gigantic building had this much detail in it

On our way up

I think this was really the next day.

Then we wandered around shopping for a long time, saw me as a building ^ , I painstakingly debated over a gorgeous pair of handmade oxfords that cost a whole lotta euro, hung out in a photobooth while it rained some more, hiked to the top of town to see more cool views, ate more gelato

Saw ideal neon

Then we did touristy stuff like this while we watched the sunset over the Arno River.
And I took a really good look because it was probably the best sunset I'll ever see in my life.

*I guess at some point I should tell you that Regan took almost all of these pictures. Ya know, so he doesn't sue me.

A head cold in the middle of July?

How many swimsuits is it appropriate to pack for 4 days in California? 5?

Cool. That's what I think too. Really though, all we do is go on trips.

"It was it or me" I keep saying. But that's not the whole truth.

I lost a shoe in a canal in American Fork last night while I was climbing a chain link fence in the dark in a skirt. Decidedly not the worst way to end a weekend

I keep a notepad by my bed to write down dreams/stuff I need to remember right away. I don't think it's very helpful but I'm really glad I use it because I just looked through it and this is what I found:

Do your friends have zebras?


Do they even have donkeys?

Maybe you should get some friends like mine?

Italy in words (mostly): Sorrento/Capri

June 15

Metro metro 4 hour bus to Sorrento
Gorgeous green hills/cliffs/shoreline-I had no idea
Perfect breeze at all times
Super deluxe hostel
Yummy lemon granitas
Cannot drink enough water
Gelato- him: caramel & green apple

June 16
Bye bye Sorrento
Walk to port, millions of old people on boat to Capri
Checked bags
Ferry into grotto, still can't believe it, we had the best guy so I gave him 20 euro?
Bus to Anacapri-WHOA the views/crazy driving
Chairlift up Monte Solaro-so so quiet, solo seats, breathtaking views, lots of fun. Views at top were unbelievable-cliffs, birds, etc.
Walked down through vegetation-lizards!
Lemon chocolate/lemon honey
Bus back to Capri
Boat to Naples-pulled straight out from Capri and the second I wasn't on the island it seemed completely fake to me
Naples is the grossest place on Earth

Total transportation for the day: walk, boat, boat, rowboat, boat, bus, chair lift, walk, bus, boat, walk, train, taxi


Clear Complexion v. Positively Radiant stumped me for a solid 20 minutes yesterday. What do I do if I want them both? Who doesn't want them both?

I guess all we do is go on trips

Oh Wyoming, you never disappoint me.

not pictured: the freezing ditch that completely worked us over but we floated it anyway (on principle), the hugest sky you've ever seen, the single best firework we've ever experienced, a bunch of other babies, tons of hamburger eating, maggie trying to steal my boyfriend (and kinda succeeding), half moon lake, pygmy goats!

trevi fountain

regan'll never get over this place

forno pizza. my first meal in italy. yum.

richard meier built this cool modern building around the Ara Pacis (an ancient Roman peace alter)

some sweet signs on a wall

pantheon ceiling

colosseum - I could have sat in here for days

the forum across the street from the colosseum

I don't remember what this is. Cool.

not pictured: a million hours of getting there, our near disastrous meeting strategy at the train station, the heat, the rain, the sistine chapel, the 'breakfast' from our bed&breakfast, most perfect meal at gusto, the cute paper and napkin rings that I bought, spanish steps, vatican museum

Is this already old news?
