My Word for the year…

A little over a week ago I took on the challenge from Lara of Less Cake More Frosting of picking a word for the year and got to share it with her readers.
If you didn’t catch it on her blog, I wanted to share it with you today!

After milling over what my WORD would be, it struck me one day and then just wouldn’t go away!
My word for 2012 is ADVENTURE
There are always the BIG moments to look forward to in life but what about the everyday or the small, quiet moments? I think the mundane everyday can be turned into or viewed as an adventure! 
I love this quote:
“In all living have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.” – Gordon B. Hinckley
So for 2012 I am living an adventurous life! I am going to see more in my everyday. I am going to plan and carry out more of those items on the “someday” list. I am going to go for it!

 I took a small journal and created my 2012 Adventure Bucket list! It’s been filled with favorite adventure quotes and pictures that I have collected on Pinterest. Plus some favorite song lyrics that motivate me to continue to pursue the adventure items on my bucket list.

It’s small enough to fit into my purse as a constant reminder and it still has room to journal about the adventures that come my way this year that aren’t even on my list.

As they say in the movie UP –

Do you have a word that you are going to center your year around? Please share it with me! And if you haven’t picked one yet – it’s not to late!


  1. Great word!

  2. Great word! My favorite quote is from Amelia Earhart, “When someone offers you a great adventure, you don’t refuse it”.
