Firenze, my favorite city in the world.
My husband and I studied abroad in Florence three years ago, and we miss it every day. But nowadays, revisiting Florence requires just a quick trip to the home office.

As a wedding gift, my husband bought me a 1595 Florence Scrolled cloth map from Restoration Hardware. Waiting almost 10 months post-wedding to open the map was difficult, but definitely worth the wait!

Restoration Hardware has a variety of antique maps to choose from.
This would make an awesome 1-year wedding anniversary {paper} present! Happy shopping!

oh the places you’ll go

Maybe you’re a world traveler. Maybe you want to log the locations you’ve visited in a creative way. Maybe you have an entire list of places to visit and explore. Maybe you hold a special place in your heart for a particular spot in this great big world. Maybe you and your fiance want to incorporate the places you’ve traveled together on your wedding day. Or maybe you just love maps, or have some lying around that need a new purpose.

Whatever the reason, with these map/globe projects you can feel like a world traveler…without the jet lag.
