well hello 2016!!
and that of course means the unveiling of a new word that will guide me through the year ... and also a brand, new look for the blog!!
welcome to the year of:
F R E S H
there were numerous words that i contemplated picking ... usually around november new words start appearing and i start a list that i keep adding the contenders to ... i "try" them on, think about them, their meaning and then i reflect on the year i've had with my current word and where i want to go ...
at some point i decided i wanted something simple ... i do believe light will continue to resonate into this year as well ... our family has had a pretty rough, emotional rollercoaster over the past 3 years ... and although i realize that a flip of the calendar won't make the grief disappear, i really feel i need a positive word to anchor myself to this year ...
this year i want to invite ...
a fresh start
and i'm starting with freshening up right here on the blog ... prairie girl is growing up!! my blog is going into it's 7th year!! yikes how did that happen? i have been thinking a lot about my little corner of the internet and what i share and i want my loyal blog readers and new readers to know exactly what i'm about!! i'm excited about the simpler look and yes i've decided to drop the prairie girl ... i will always be a prairie girl at heart, but i think that over the years that moniker hasn't really been reflected in my content ... check out my new about page and let me know what you think!!
also, if you're new here and you have no idea what one little word is you can check out this blog post ... i am joining ali again for her year long scrapbooking class, OLW ...
i hope you're as excited as me for a fresh new 2016 and thanks for joining me on this continuing adventure!!
