2013 Word for the Year

Last year's word was Change, and it was a big year of change for me - mainly in my diet. I became Gluten-Free in the spring, and then Dairy-Free and Yeast-Free in December. This makes for major meal-planning challenges, but I've adapted well enough (GF Bisquick = my lifesaver).

While 2013 will still see some more changes for me, I think the big ones are out of the way. That means it's time for the next step, and that brings me to this year's word:

My 2013 word: Discovery

I am ready to discover new things, new places, new words! A few of the ways I plan to do this is:

Posting a novel online. I have yet to truly edit a novel, so this will be a good experience for me, one chapter at a time. Be sure to Follow along on the journey at Toaster Loses Her Hatting!
Reading more. Less television re-runs, more books. I have already started in a major way, beginning with my first books of the year (yes, plural - and one is an adult book no less!), Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore and Etiquette & Espionage (which is actually a second read - look for the review soon!).
New food. Since my list of approved foods continues to shrink, it's time for me to let go of the stubborn child within and try some new foods! First up, I think: asparagus.

So what is your word for 2013?


  1. It is a great word for this year! Wish you the best in all of your discoveries.

  2. I love this word! Discovery sounds so adventurous and exciting. And I'm SOO excited for this serial book you're doing! Eeek! Gonna be so much fun!

    PS I love asparagus. Yummy!
