one little word 2013

Let's get going, 2013 :) I am still debating my "One Little Word" for 2013. Last year, my word was "intentional" - I loved that word and felt like I was a lot more intentional with my days with that word often at the forefront of my mind. I didn't end up making any sort of record of it, but I am still happy with how the word was on my mind throughout the year and I definitely feel like I accomplished my goal of that.

This year, I decided to sign up for Ali Edward's One Little Word class (go here to see more about it on her blog) to have an accountability to keep a record of it. New Year's Eve, my hubby and I were waiting for midnight and I had been debating signing up for days.... registration "closed" at 10pm that evening. I signed up at 9:36pm ;) (you can sign up any time of year - so if you still want to sign up, you can! :))
So like I said, for awhile I've been trying to decide on my word - make or plan. I like what I'm coming up with for each. I've been brainstorming for a little bit while I wait for the class supplies (binder and pages) to get here.

I made myself a mixed paper notebook with some fabric my hubby got me for Christmas (yay!!) - this will be my notes and sketches and odds and ends book this year. I also purchased a planner (that I love) from Target for the year. 
Here's to 2013 and One Little Word. What about you? Do you have a word you are focusing on this year? Need some ideas or inspiration? Go here to see a huge list Ali Edwards has compiled.

Printable mini calendar on my first page above available here.


  1. Create is my word for the year. January is all about creating a happy home. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

    1. Breath is my word for this year...if I could add another word it would be deeply

  2. Last year, my word was "courage", and I don't think I properly applied myself to my word last year.
    This year, like you, I'm having a hard time choosing... I've been tossing around "Believe", "Chance", and "Focus". I think I'm leaning more toward "believe"... *sigh* Just not sure.

  3. I really want to sign up for the class. I just don't know if I can justify spending that kinda of money. I think I choose a word though. I am going for "write". I want to write more on my blog, write more of my book and defiantly write in my journal more.

    Hope you have a good year,

  4. My One Little Word for 2013 would have to be "NEW". Have a blessed year ahead!

  5. Hmm, good job! This is really something!
