  1. Now you've gone and done it. Bribing people to wish you a happy birthday! ha!

    I'd enter your drawing, but Shawn actually bought me a pashmina for Christmas. I LOVE it.

    I will still wish you a happy birthday on your special day.

    Love,
    me.

  3. I like reading anything you blog about but of course since it's almost New Year's you could blog about how/if you celebrated New Years and how others celebrate it there.

  5. I love, love, love when you post about life in Turkey. How about a post about women in Turkey? something like, "A Day in the Life of a Turkish woman"? I think that would be really interesting.

  6. Whew, this is a lot of comments for me! I've known you since college. We roomed together in China and Idaho, had loads of laughs, and experimented with cheesecake improvisations (i.e. using the blender instead of a mixer).

  12. The topic I would love to have you talk about? I read the article on you and your husband in the N&O on being frugal, saving money, not being in debt. That is what I really love to read more of your experiences of being a Christian in a non Christian country
