The Most Epic BLATE Ever.

For those of you who don't know

a "blate" is a blogger date.

A few months back, 

over dinner in Glasgow

Megan & I started scheming up

what could be an amazing hen-do blate

{hen-do = British bachelorette party}

after her and Stephen got engaged.

{We had a feeling it was right around the corner.}

Obviously, I suggested Italy.

Obviously, Megan thought it wasn't a terrible idea.

Fast forward to 3 months later,

and I'm sitting on the rug of my living room

packing for a 5 day get away to Tuscany

with two of my favorite blogging friends.

{Us American ExPats in Europe have to stick together.}

We meet in Pisa tomorrow

where we will drive to a villa

and lounge in the country for two days...

after that, our men come to join the party.

I simply can't wait

for several reasons:

1. It's so fun to spend time with blogger friends in real life.

Getting to have girl time with Megan & Liz

is just what the doctor ordered.


We will be in Lucca, which (as I have previously said) 

is Tyler & my's favorite city in the world.

That's a bold statement, but we love it there.

 Remember when

I spent my birthday there

last year?

3. There is this really awesome gelateria there

with a particular homemade flavor

 that I love, Raffaello.

It's white chocolate, hazlenut and fresh coconut... just like the candy truffles. 

Last summer, we drove all the way from Florence on our last night

and each ate a large cone full of it...

and went back in for a second cone when we finished.

So yeah, that's another pretty big draw.

If you could join us in Tuscany, 

what would you insist on doing/eating/seeing?
