Here is a short summary of my 2014 with some pics. Of course there are lots of moments I want to
mention but these are the ones I remember in a clear way. This year wasn't my favorite one that I had
lots of things to do, worked hard for my magazine, and tried to be calm and peaceful to concentrate
on my works.... but my wedding day and our honeymoon were the bests of my life so far.

I hope all we'll have a better and awesome year with a big wisdom, peace, and happiness!

Happy new year, happy 2015! See you.

d.i.y: homemade bread

For a while we've baked our bread in our kitchen. This recipe is pretty easy to give a try:

- 1 cup of water (in room temperature)
- 1 table spoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt

how to make:

Sunrise, sunrise looks like mornin' in your eyes...

Here I am. When it's time to be ready for a harsh winter, I get my film rolls
back to remember how it feels being under the sun. These images were taken in this
summer when we took a short distance road trip to Türker's hometown. Some of them
were taken in our house..

I can't wait to be on the roads again, but of course there are 'things to do' first.
On January, we'll have a flight to Barcelona for the second time (cause we like
this city so much) and even though it will be probably dark and cloudy I can't wait
to take more pics with my new camera and this analog one too.

Because I have a very short spare time to blog regularly, I decide to share more pics rather
than daily posts. Hope you'll like them. 
Enjoy the weekend!
