Traveler Susan was in the market for a week spent soaking up a culture very different from her own. A place filled with unrecognizable food and new faces.….and she hit the mark’et with a trip to Thailand.
From Chiang Mai’s night markets…
to Bangkok’s floating markets,…
Thailand’s open-air markets…
filled Susan’s trip with Hallmark’et moments of en’Thai’cing smells and smiling faces.
“I found a fabric market while walking from Pak Klong Talad flower market to the Golden Mountain Temple. The elephant and peacock motif on this fabric felt like it embodied Thailand.” —Traveler Susan Jeske
Here’s to capturing life's Hallmark'et moments and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”
In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)
Season’s greetings to you and your family!
We hope you have a great thyme this season doing your favorite holiday things: from cumin together with your family, to wearing warm and comfy cloves, to chili-ing out and taking some time off to rest. Oh and have fun opening presents too, just remember that “it is always pepper to give than to receive.”
From all of us at Taaluma, we wish you a rose-merry Christmas and a dill-lightful New Year!
