Guess where I'll be soon?

Does anyone recognize this cupcake? I'll be having two (but not this flavor!)

Turkey on my Mind

No, I'm not thinking about Thanksgiving, I'm thinking about Turkey, the country. In my mind, I've planned a lovely trip for my husband and I for his upcoming big birthday. I discovered this great looking hotel called Argos in the heart of the Cappadocia region of Turkey. I keep going back to their website to look at all the intriguing photos of the hotel and surrounding area. I thought it would be great to visit Istanbul for a couple days, see the sites, shop in the markets (or are they bazaars?), and then scoot over to Cappadocia. Great, right?

The fact is, we're really not set up for a trip of this magnitude at the moment, because there are few (ok, zero) volunteers to watch and play with Jake while we would be gone. I think he's a little young (3) and needy to bring him and think we would relax for more than 2 minutes. The fairy towers for which this region is known will have to wait a bit for us. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right? Happy birthday darling!
