|Me in front of Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, Turkey|
John and I visited Turkey on our honeymoon and fell in love with it. We’ve been talking about going back ever since. I was very honored to receive 2 awards from my new blogger friend, Ozlem at Ozlem’s Turkish Table. I’ve received and passed on the “Versatile Blogger Award” several times, so although I accept it graciously, I will not pass it on this time. But the “One Lovely Blog Award” is new to me, so I am happy to accept it and share it. Please take some time to visit Ozlem’s blog – Turkish cuisine is wonderfully flavorful.
The Rules of Acceptance:
- Thank the person who gave you this award
- Include a link to their blog
- Next, select 5 blogs/bloggers that youโve recently discovered or follow regularly.
- Nominate those bloggers for the Awards
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
- In the same post, include this set of rules.
- Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
The best part of this award is that I get to share it with other accomplished bloggers. Please take a few moments to check out their blogs:
Laura at Tutti Dolci
Paula at Vintage Kitchen Notes
Kate at A Spoonful of Thyme
Sheri at Pork Cracklins
Ryan at Ryan Bakes

One of our adopted daughters just returned from Turkey this week. She has an older 1/2 sister who lives is Istanbul with her son…this sister flies my daughter for an annual visit. My daughter loves Turkey…the wonderful food is a big reason, and also the history and the sea. Your photos are wonderful and your honeymoon must have been exotically fabulous. Maybe I’ll get there some day…the girls try to talk me into going.

Susan, I visited Turkey & Greece three years ago. Couldn’t get enough of Turkey and will go back. Loved the Hagia Sophia although I wish they would work harder on its restoration. Ate at Kasadasi Harbor. Congratulations on another of your non-ending string of awards It’s just fun, if nothing else, and a nice recognition of a Blog well done.

I went to Turkey 2 summers ago with my husband and children. What a breathtakingly beautiful place with lovely, warm people and amazing food. No wonder you’re going back! Such a tasty blog you have ๐
