A Perfect Day


It's November and it is still abnormally warm in Antalya. I'm not complaining, if the weather was like this all year round, I would be in heaven.

With the sun shining bright and the sky clear this morning, we wanted to make sure and get outside and enjoy it.  Sometime soon the rainy season will arrive and we won't have these pleasant Saturday afternoons. We decided to find a beach so we could sit and relax. We drove about 20 minutes outside of Antalya on the Konyaalti Road, found this little spot, and set up our chairs and our fishing poles.

We didn't realize how warm it actually was. We could have swam today! We were both burning up in our pants and t-shirts and Enes was wishing he could have jumped in to do some spear fishing.

To be in such a quiet place, reading a wonderful book with a few fishing lines thrown out and listening to the water of the Mediterranean washing up to the shore was a perfect day.

Happy Birthday!!


Today was Enes' birthday! We celebrated by having dinner and cake with friends. A friend of ours made a  birthday cake that looked like a fish and I really think it was the best cake I have ever tasted.

The next day, Enes and I celebrated at home. I wanted to cook him dinner, but instead he cooked me dinner! I'm a lucky girl!

1 Year

Enes and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary in October. Our civil ceremony was October 16th and our wedding ceremony was October 17th, so I guess we get to celebrate both days?!

A friend of ours who is a photographer took some photos for our anniversary as our wedding gift because she wasn't able to be here when were married. We had a fun morning with her exploring the streets of Old Town Antalya and the harbor and needless to say after viewing the photos, we laughed alot!

Here are a few of our favorites:
