Happy New Year 2017 – Word of the Year

It’s that time of year again. When I look back on similar posts I have written the past four years I am amused and surprised.

  One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you? My word for 2010 is: There should be nothing unusual about this word as a choice for me, except that it is a word that could be used to describe my entire life! Growing up an Army brat I was … [Read more...]
