Posting has been slow. My days are filled with thinking, researching, planning for Chicago; packing, canceling services for Istanbul. Not the type of experiences that you can take photos of and write your reflections about!
However, we still had the joyful celebrations for the birthdays of Lula and Adele. This year, we decided to do one birthday party for both and invited family and close friends. It was crowded and I could not get great photos from the party but I was able to take some photos of our decoration before everyone came.
It took a while to make each one of the pom poms but it was fun seeing them come together.
Diva visited Istanbul a few weeks ago and during her busy trip, I troubled her for a banner for our party. She did not have her usual materials, but I think that the end result turned beautiful. I got it printed on canvas here at a local university print shop. Thank you, Diva!
