Last week we posted about our blog contest with Margie Romney-Aslett, and we asked you "what is your One Little Word for 2011" ...
This year, we, the Petite Lemon family decided to participate in One Little Word 2011 — a soul searching, self-awareness activity that seems to have spread like wildfire throughout the blogosphere. One Little Word was started by Ali Edwards back in 2007 and it's simple - select a word that you'd like to live by in the New Year.
Here's a little peek into the one word we've each selected ...
Our fearless leader and momepreneur, Paula, chose the word BALANCE.
"I love to do more, be more, give more ... its all about balance. Life can be a joyful balance (or insanely crazy)."
Our very own Hillary is pregnant with her first baby, which will officially make this little girl our first Petite Lemon ... she's selected the word SAVOR to live by for the year.
"This word fits perfectly for the stage of life I am in right now. I need to...
SAVOR...the time I have right now
SAVOR...every moment with my newborn
SAVOR, SAVOR, SAVOR each moment."
And lastly there is me, Jessica. I chose the word FAITH.
I secretly wished I could have chosen a phrase, which could have been anything from "calm down" to "just breath" ... but that's not how this one word assignment works. So instead I chose the word FAITH. "Have faith in yourself and in the future", Ted Kennedy ... just about sums it up.
So what's your word?
