Вихідні промайнули, натомість залишились ні з чим незрівнянні емоції, яскраві спогади і сотня фото 🙈
Почну з костелу в Підгірцях. Задумали його Жевуські, тодішні власники замку, як копію барокової усипальниці в Турині. От і побудували такий собі шматочок Італії в Підгірцях) Не поскупились власники на оздоблення для власної усипальниці. Костел вражає не лише зовні, а й всередині. Тож не оминіть його, коли приїдете в Підгірці наступного разу 🖤
📮 Костел Воздвиження Чесного Хреста і Святого Йосифа, Підгірці
Santa Croce - Florence Italy 🇮🇹..
Dante Alighieri the famous author of the Divine comedy was born in 1265. The facade of Santa Croce has been accomplished in 1865, six hundred years later. For that occasion, the entire Florence was preparing many events honoring the poet. A monument dedicated to Dante has been erected in the middle of the square in front of Santa Croce. The sculptor of the Dante statue Enrico Pazzi was born in Ravenna what gave the pretext for some discussions at that time because Ravenna and Florence disputed about the last rest of Dante..
When the big Arno flood in 1966 came and inundated the square, the opportunity has been caught to restart the discussion about a better use of the square for public purposes. The car parking has been removed and also the monument found a new place, although the traditionalists protested..
In 1971, the sculpture was transported to the place where it is today. Nowadays, Florentines and their guests enjoy this wide square where the traditional football tournament of Calcio storico takes place every year. There happen other nice events like open air recitals of the Divine Comedy. But also sad moments like funerals of important Florentines, like recently the one for the captain of the AC Florentina who died suddenly, take place here..
All this underlines the iconic importance of Santa Croce as pantheon of the Italian nation. There is also a tomb of Dante, but it is empty. The architect of Santa Croce's facade, Niccolò Matas, is commemorated outside the church in front of the main entrance with a plaque describing that the Italian parliament decided so to honor the artist's achievement..
Have you been to York? If not, you absolutely should, it is the best city in UK, and by extension, all of the world. 😂 Founded in 71 ad, and for Romans, called Eboracum, directly translated as "yew tree place" . I have a very special memory about this particular day - great weather, family time, World Cup 2018. As today the weather is rainy and no photography chances looming, let's share our favourite memories of York?

Sunday seems like an appropriate day to reflect on our Attingham Summer School visit to Derby Cathedral. Having visited Bess of Hardwick’s phenomenal final home at Hardwick Hall, we stopped to see her final resting place at Derby Cathedral. Appropriately, the inscription above Bess’ marble tomb describes her as the aedificatrix (builder) of Chatsworth, Hardwick and Oldecotes, a house that Bess built near Hardwick for her son William of which no trace remains. #theaccidentalpreservationist
The day my preacher dad found out that M&M’s weren’t just chocolate.
I was a total rebellious teenager and dad borrowed my car to run an errand last minute, yea sure no problem, meanwhile I completely forget to take the cd out of the player, not even thinking about it at this point, I hand over the keys and he leaves. He turns the car on, music immediately starts blaring “you better lose yourself...” dad is thinking, this is a little loud but ok it’s talking about dying to self, then the song continues and quickly spirals out of control. I get my car back and went to turn on the music and the CD player was empty, I couldn’t find the cd anywhere and then that awkward moment where I realized omg I left my Eminem cd ON in the car and it was not the clean version. I died a thousand deaths, then later casually asked him about the cd, thinking he didn’t even hear it, surely there’s some misunderstanding, and he precedes to say I threw it away, that was a terrible cd, where did you even get that, why? Thinking quickly I’m like it wasn’t mine, it was a mix of music that a friend let me borrow. Then dead silence. 🤦🏼♀️ The life of a PK #onholyground ⛪ P.S. how gorgeous is this cathedral in Edinburgh 🏴
Queer eye a Netflix original show, with the fab five is one of my favorites. They not only transform outward appearances of people but their hearts as well. .
Bobby ( one of the fab five)said this at the end, after having a hard time accepting where he came from , bc he was ostracized at his church at a young age bc he is gay. What he said Above⬆️ is the makeup of my ♥️ heart. God loves EVERYONE. He doesn’t discriminate, ppl do. But if you look there are a lot more good ppl around than the judgy hateful ones.
This episode hit home to me ( balled my eyes out) bc I was ostracized from my church at a young age 15-16 , bc my parent went through a nasty divorce and bc I had a boyfriend. The church told me I had the devil in my family and that my parents and my family were going to hell . At a time where I needed them most they turned their back. They were judgmental about divorce and sex before marriage. They made me feel unlovable . I eventually couldn’t go anymore. I also always loved everyone no matter what their sexual orientation was or their religion and my family and church didn’t bring me up or feel that way. It was just me. But I knew that god did too. I eventually stopped going to church but god still lives in my heart . Now if only the church would accept pot smokers .
Still don’t go to church bc I’m in a relationship and not married and now I’m pregnant and don’t want to deal with judgmental ppl. It hurts me that I can’t have that community but maybe I will find it one day. A church that accepts ALL of who you are . .
