Turkey Day!

This past Thursday was my first Thanksgiving ( Turkey Day) in Turkey.

However, there was no turkey.  This is the first year that we didn’t have at least a piece on Thanksgiving, and this is the second Thanksgiving I didn’t spend with family (the first being my first year in Florida).

Still, I was able to skype with my family before they had their turkey meal.

That’s what it’s all really about though, isn’t it?  Family, friends, and being thankful for what you have.  Hubby and I decided to start some of our own Turkish/American Thanksgiving traditions!

But turkey will be making a comeback, if I have anything to say about it!

*btw, I apologize these aren’t as detailed as my usual posts, I was in a rush to get them up before it was way past Thanksgiving. Thanks for your understanding 🙂

My First Fall in Turkey!

I love fall/winter!  There is something about slipping into a cozy sweater that makes you all warm and fuzzy inside.   It is particularly gratifying when you are a hijabi, because it gives you plenty of opportunities to layer different patterns and textures without getting too hot.  This is my first fall season in Turkey, and I am getting to have many new experiences, which I will blog about soon!  However, I will be missing out on the onslaught of American/Christian holidays that are right around the corner…#expatprobs
