Word of the Year 2013 {closed}


Random Winners

Congratulations to our lucky winners!  #139, Swenbourne; #245, The Lovely One; and #168, Tiffany M.!

I first discovered the Word of the Year in 2007 by Michelle, Kristi, and Lisa and was immediately inspired by the idea originated by Alli Edwards:

“A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow.”

Word of the Year
I thought long and hard about my word of the year and it came as a result of what I’ve been thinking about a ton this year, which is about being true to myself, and taking care of my aging skin {snicker}.  

Be·YOU·tiful ~ Having beauty; having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about,etc.; delighting the senses or mind.

 I just love the word, and the word play within the word, don’t you?  I want to be sure that in 2013 I take care of ME as well as others, ‘cuz that’s important, too.

Word of the Year

I’d LOVE to challenge you to pick a word that sums up what you want for yourself in 2013.
