Goodbye 2010 | Hello 2011

The Edwards’ wish you peace & joy in the coming year!

A really big thank you to each and every one of you for your support and kindness over this past year.

I’m working on the One Little Word list and hope to have that posted on Monday morning. Feel free to continue adding your words throughout the weekend. Reading the comments on that post is always one of my favorite things each year.

Look for a great giveaway coming tomorrow morning.

If you’re participating in the One Little Word class I’ll see you in the classroom this weekend!

    Happy New Year to you & yours, Ali. My one little word for 2011 will be: ACTIVE. My goal is to be more active in all aspects of my life and less passive. And to use the OLW class as a way to be more active in my memory keeping.

    Best wishes for a wonderful new year to you and your family. Thank you for the constant inspiration! I’m excited about the OLW class too. I’ve still working on finding the right word. I really might be folowing in your footsteps. I’m tossing around a few words: STILL, LIGHT, TIME –hopefully I’ll be ready for class!!!

    Ali, Happy New Year to you! Thanks for sharing your talents with us. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2011!

    Thinking of my one little word. It has to be a good one. 2010 was one of the toughest and one of the best years for me all rolled into one. I know what I want in 2011, I just need the perfect word to convey it.

  • 21.

    CULTIVATE is my word for 2011 & although it won’t look pretty stamped on a silver charm and won’t really look great displayed in scrabble letters, it is a great word that applies to so much with so much potential and so many possibilities.
    My goal for the new year is to work my word into daily life creatively, spiritually, physically and mentally…within my family, my friendships, my relationship with God and to apply it, practice it, pray on it and enjoy it each day…

    Can’t wait for class..Happy New Year to the Edwards family!

    This is my first time to do One Little Word. I have chosen the word PURPOSE. I want all that I do to be determined by it’s true purpose. Before doing big and small things in my life I want to ask myself, “What’s the purpose?” If it’s a postive purpose then I want to have the drive to complete it. If it’s a negative purpose then I want to evaluate it be honest with myself to choose to do a better option. Thank you for inspiring this!

    My ‘One Little Word’ for 2011 is EXPERIENCE. This little word is packed with BIG possibilities.
    Over the past several years, I have found myself daydreaming about doing “this or that”, but never putting any action behind it. 2011 is going to be different. I may even use my Passport for the 1st time!

    Happy New year to you and your family. Thank you for an amazing year of inspiration!! I love coming here everyday to see what you’ve come up, it’s never boring or old instead fresh, new and exciting. I’m ready to begin with my new word of the year. Such a nice family photo.

    Jennifer Langer said…

    Happy New Year, and terrific family picture! I am truly excited to be experiencing Yesterday/Today again, as well as One Little Word for the first time! My word for this new year will be IMAGINE. It came to me recently upon hearing a conversation about art and life, and the beginning of this sentence hit me like a ton of bricks: “Can you imagine….”. Yes, I can. And if I can imagine it (whatever that may be), I can do it. I imagine good things to come for 2011, and for me, it all starts with this!
