I love the mellow vibes of summer in Istanbul. The city becomes a whole new place and so does our apartment. I can’t remember I felt the same last year but this summer has been good for my heart and soul. I travelled a lot the first few weeks but now I’m home for a while and I enjoy every second of it. Usually I like to get out of the city every few and sometimes even every other week but not at the moment. I feel content at home and I’m glad I get to spend some time with my kitchen, my books, my cats and our neighborhoods. This sounds nerdy but I’m quite proud of myself for finally being able to sit still and relax for once….
