You are not Albanian if You do not have Bulgarian Cheese with every meal. . .

This is called Pite . . . Every Albanian kid grows up on this . . . we actually die for it!
Looking at this picture right now I want to eat it . . .
It is the first food our mothers in hopes of marrying us to a good Albanian Man teaches us how to make . . . IT IS JUST YUMMY! and very very fattening but come on these are the holidays!

Now for my outfit!

vest (forever21),dress (old), boots (joyce leslie), bag (justfab.com), glasses(charlotte russe)
This outfit was comfortable so I could be in FAT GIRL MODE but still being very ME!

What I am thankful most for is this crazy messed up sometimes magical life I live! With the crazy messed up sometimes magical people in it! :)

Ok my darlings . . . enjoy the rest of your holidays! My computer wasn't working these past few days after I came back from Michigan plus its the nearing the end of a hellish semester so I have been a little MIA. . . but I AM BACKKKKKKK! O YEA BRING ON THE CELEBRATIONS!!!!

Susie's niece Princess Isabella (that's what I call her) wrote the most amazing little speech.

  3. Man that food looks scrumptious. Baklava is my favorite dessert, I go to Brooklyn to get it. Its great to find out more about your culture. I can't wait to hear more. Off topic, I just found this cute Italian restaurant in the East Village owned by a lovely Albanian family. The name is Verso.
