2012, in a Word

Something about the holidays makes me sentimental.  So bear with me as I look back at the year one more time before I start to think about 2013.

Some people like to choose theme words instead of making resolutions, but coming up with one word in January to sum up the next twelve months puts too much pressure on a new year, in my opinion.  But I think it’s great fun to pick a word to describe the year that’s already been spent.  In our family, 2011 was the Year of Grace.  And we’ve certainly had plenty of grace this year, too!  But we’re ending the year on such a high note, it feels right to pick a word that’s a bit more triumphant.  And so without further ado, I name 2012 the Year of Joy.

Here is the proof:
