As you probably already know from my One Year Together post, we had our first anniversary last week and you also probably can remember we met in Milan the very first time one year ago; so for our first anniversary we decided to re-live it all like it happened the first time, and met in the exact same spot we found each other one year ago.
The weather was pretty similar to last year, it all started with a pretty hot sun up in the sky, then it suddenly became rainy and a big bad storm was right upon us without we could even realize, with no regrets from me about deciding to wear my summer rain shoes (read: thicker loafers). Last year though, the sun came back after a while, but this year we left each other in the evening with the same rainy and cold weather as before. Even though we would had much more enjoyed our anniversary day without the rain, it really made us remember the first time we met and made everything a lot more alike.
We spent our morning wandering around, eating and buying noodles to bring home (because we’re obsessed), then went for two lemon & strawberry water ice when the weather was still super hot and we couldn’t even walk around without looking like some sweaty messes, but as soon as we decided to walk to Parco Sempione (where we spent our first afternoon wandering around and chatting a lot), the sky became darker and the weather chillier and when we reached the Sforza castle the storm was there and we has been actually stuck there for a hour or more just because the rain was too heavy to let us walk somewhere else. Lastly, as soon as the rain allowed us to move, we headed over a safer place, a Cafè, ordered two pieces of cake and two Marocchino and stayed there chatting and talking and laughing for a few more hours until it was time to take the train and go home.
We snapped some pictures of the day and thought to share them with you hoping you can enjoy them! I always love seeing Milan and it was nice to wander around like a tourist with the camera on the shoulder (no one asking for directions!) even though I’m not a huge fan of the tourist mode when it rains, and that’s for sure.
