One Little Word - Grow

My word for 2013 is grow.  

Last year, I resolved that 2012 would be the year that I finally find balance.  As crazy of a year that it was, there were moments when my life felt like it was in almost perfect harmony.  All in all, I think I can look back on 2012 with no regrets.

Now for 2013, it's a whole new ball game.  We are in the same state, and once we move into the new house on the 8th, the same house for an entire year!  We live in an island paradise.  We have two kiddos in tow.  Once we are "settled," I think it's time to put down some roots (even if it's only for a year) and do a little growing.

I want to grow in nurturing my relationships with my husband, my children, my family, my friends.  

I want to grow as a memory keeper.  While I love the pretty paper and stickers that is a part of scrapbooking, the foundation of the craft is to preserve those family stories and memories.  

I want to grow as a person - to learn how to take care of myself better (which, in turn, will allow me to take care of my family as well).

And I do believe that growing while surrounded by palm trees, tropical birds, and the most delicious Dole pineapples EVER sounds pretty darn awesome.

So there it is, 2013.  GROW.  I'm gonna do it.  You game?

Note:  One little word is a concept developed my Ali Edwards.  You can learn more about it by visiting her blog here.
