Can't believe it's over already

So, my boss does photography workshops in Italy every year and I was lucky enough to get to go and help out with it this year. We were there for two weeks, one week on the Italian Riviera two days in Florence and a second week in Tuscany. Loren spent the first week with me and my mom came over for the second week. We had a blast getting to know new people and visiting different cities every day. We would do short photography classes in the morning and then spend the rest of the day traveling to surrounding areas seeing little villages, monasteries, beaches. Here are some pictures from the first week. I'll post more from the second week later to split it up.
