the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze was opened in june 2008, in florence, italy, in a converted renaissance palace that sits in an 11 acres private park.  this property, a short 10 minute walk from the center of florence, is an encapsulation of florentine highlights. since its opening, it has dazzled thebestdressup.  a few weeks ago, at the luvFAB Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, although it was winter, i was immersed in brilliant light; surrounded by the holiday light decorations.  the holiday decorations were just exquisite and luminous.  i appreciated the light that adorned this property, internally and externally, and realized that it was not just the light of the unlimited holiday light bulbs that shined bright, but the people that make this hotel function.  their efforts outshined the artificial light, and this ought not be taken as a given, even in this sort of setting.  this energy was widespread and was an alluring luvFIND.  this is hotel staff par excellence; their energy beams this luxury hotel to a stellar realm.  individuals that go beyond and above are bright lights that radiate wherever they are.  being drawn to luvSTUFF is much fun, but to be drawn to the light in all, is just a luvMUST.  the light, in any season, at the amazing luvFAB Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is clearly for thebestdressup now!

    I am just LUVing all this illumination! Inspiring! Bravo! And here’s to a 2013 full of continued brilliance! BTW, I, too, am astonished that a 2-season Four Seasons exists….. it’s been such a reliable operation over the years. And the Four Seasons Palazzo Tornabuoni residences are just spectacular! For all the bestdressups, si?
