I never consciously chose a word for 2011, but as I look back, I realize that a word chose me this year. EXPAND. I expanded my horizons on just about every front I can think of. It was a year of pregnancy, childbirth, house buying, moving, writing, photographing, uncloaking, making new connections, functioning as new parents, and much more. And it was all done on very little sleep. Each time I thought I couldn’t possibly handle another challenge or another big bill, more came along. But we mananged, we learned, and we have a sweet little girl in our lives.
Just last night, my word for 2012 came to me. COMMIT. It is a big word for big year ahead. More on that in the New Year!
