Caffè Florian

In 1720, Floriano Francesconi opened a caffè in Venice’s Piazza San Marco… And it’s beautiful. Pretty astonishing that nearly three-hundred years later, the caffè still stands and is recognized as one of Venice’s gems.

I knew I’d at least have to sit in one of the oldest cafes in Europe, but I don’t think I quite prepared myself for what I was actually going to drink I ordered just the Bicerin (coffee, chocolate, and cream) and was full when I left. That stuff is thick.

I’m a firm believer in the power of coffee, and where you drink it can be just as important as the caffeine itself. Today I’m not in a seventeenth century landmark. I’m somewhat buried in work, school, and various creative projects. I’m tired. It’s Monday. My apartment is definitely not emblazoned with golden cherubs, but it is perfectly okay. Just photos of this place calms me.

It’s a warm Monday morning in SC & my little writing space feels extra cozy. What gets me through mornings lately: coffee, herbal tinctures, and certain skin care products. I’m a sucker for Witch Hazel and pretty packaging, so this toner is my new bff. I’m more of a sucker for flowers, especially when they’re clipped from our front yard! Spring time, I see you!
