Today is our one year anniversary in Istanbul! It feels a little silly to mark it, but it's been kind of a doozy, and we've—to use the expression everyone uses when trying to describe a minor shitstorm—learned a lot. Fittingly, we're flying home tomorrow at dawn for the holidays. It feels so strange to be going back to the States with a toddler after leaving with (practically) a newborn. How time flies!
