About Me


Survive :)


We are the best combination of hospitable cultures you can get. Sedat is Turkish and I am African- American Texan! We fell in love and decided to marry in Istanbul Turkey. We love to travel and experience new things. We both love to laugh and make others laugh! We love to meet new friendly people! We are looking forward to new experiences with our lives together now. We love going out for drinks, games, trying new things, dancing ( I am better than my husband.) We just want to seize the day!


" What you do with your life is really only one half of the equation the other half, the more important half really, is who your with when your doing it."
"Once you have been away from your city, region or country for a while, you are no longer fully from there. I mean, you are, but know you have acquired another identity. Sometimes this process is quite traumatic: you feel you are neither here nor there, and you feel there is a loss. But hopefully one can embrace the newly acquired identity, and see you have gained something in the process. We need to accept a more fluid, less solid concept of identity. We are always in the process of becoming somebody else."
--José Edmundo Paz-Soldán
