Yep, I did it. I married an Albanian.
Most first responses are, "I'm embarrassed to say, I don't know where Albania is." When what they mean to say is, "What the heck is an Albanian?!" Follow me on everyday enlightenments and explanations of my life married to a proud Albanian; and my (mostly true) recollections of how I got into this lovely mess. I am proud of the culture I have semi-adopted as my own.
I am a published travel writer and editor for a travel magazine, artist, DIY nut, lover of food, survivor of raising two Albanian boys (one with severe food allergies), and living with at least five other Albanians all at once. Yes, I am Mother Teresa (who was Albanian, by the way).
Follow me for a bit, and see for yourself, just exactly what an Albanian is.
Welcome! Mirë se vjen!
