I'll be a verb.

I've found my word or it has found me.  At any rate it definitely feels like we are meant to spend the next year together.

light·en

1. Make or become lighter or brighter, to shed light on.
2. To relieve or be relieved of care or worry.

It's my intention is to lighten up.  Lighten financial worry, create a work/life balance that inspires happiness.  STOP being so hard on myself, refine, grow and emerge a happier, healthier Lacy. Continue to lighten up on our belongings (aka stuff)... keep what I love, what feeds me and donate what does not.  Surround myself with people that inspire me and bring light and love into my life.  So that's it.  All my heart, all my love and hopes for this year in one little word, lighten.  

My little sis and her husband are heading through the sky over the big blue ocean today and landing in a whole new life in Barcelona, Spain.  I can't imagine what they must be feeling.  We are all off to stand in the light in our own ways.  

Hope the light is shining brightly upon you today!  Happy New Year!

Did you pick a word?  What is it and what does it mean to you?  You are welcome to share!

Well that is a bright word indeed. I like your choice of Lighten! And through your blog you'll continue to enlighten all of us! :)

My word this year is Transform. It's my year of change, for a better version of myself. I am excited by my word and feeling quite devoted to a few changes I have in mind. :) I will be that much better at helping and loving those around me when I transform my own little world.

Happy New Year!

Oh! I love the idea of a word of the year! I'm going to have to think on that for a bit...

BTW, congrats on the opening of Breathe; it sounds like an absolutely fabulous thing to be a part of!

Ok..I am fighting with my iPad again over the word verification.

I am so happy that your word found you. You two will go good together. I shan't be choosing a word. Think I will just sit back and watch you and yours. :>)
