You might have been wondering why there has been a dearth of travel posts on the blog this year. You might chalk it up to pregnancy but I actually have been traveling - I just haven't had time to post about it. Back in July we spent a few days in Isanbul and Paris. Between the jet lag and the heat, I was pretty knocked out in Istanbul so I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I would have liked. That said, its an amazing city and I am definitely going back (but not in summer!) Here are some snapshots.
