Friday Favourites… It’s been a long summer…

What a great summer we have had here!

We went to England and Wales for visiting and because I have started back to school and had some course work to do. I’m a student again! Loving it?!? It will make for an interesting year!

We went to the beach a few times, and to Paris (again). We’ve hung out with some great friends, and unfortunately some of our great friends have moved away…

Alara has started piano lessons, and is doing really well. She has enjoyed her summer vacation, but is looking forward to seeing her friends at school!

Ela is crawling (all over) and standing up now! She’s such happy baby!

Here we are, heading into our last year here and Belgium. This summer has made us realize all the things we still need to do and see! You can believe that we will seeing everything that we get up to before our return to Turkey.

Here are some links to things I’ve been finding interesting…

A friend of mine from Ankara wrote a great post about figs on her blog,
Far From the Sticks

Joy the baker Podcast talked about some of my favourite things, book clubs, nail polish and autumn fashions.

NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour is the podcast that I have been listening to like crazy! So funny and interesting!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

      What school and what coursework? I just finished my MA in TESOL. Let me know if you come back to Turkey to visit.

        I’ve started my PCGEi at the university of Nottingham, it’s a one year course that will (hopefully) allow me to teach at an international school, with the option to do two more modules and a dissertation for my masters of education… We’ll see how it all goes. Pretty interesting so far!

        Congratulations on finishing your Masters!!!!
