Family takes many forms. Whichever one it is that you feel part of, the abiding love is what defines it: equally with our beloved Florence. Many of us were quick to hop on planes, eagerly anticipating the open arms of the Renaissance city enveloping us and making us one of her own, sure to find the embrace one imagines of a city nestled in its valley, hugged by the hills cuddling it so tenderly. I certainly envisaged it as such when choosing to raise my own family here, and I haven’t been proven wrong yet. There is a strength in this community that amazes me. The family-like support and championing that one would hope for.
