One Little Word 2016 Embrace

Oh one little word of the year...I've missed you! For a variety of reason I didn't really "pick" a word for 2016. I justified it by saying I would do a monthly word but that hasn't really been coming together for me.


It's never too late to start living my word! So I'm starting today! Embrace is my word for 2016!

Minds Full: Top Five

Today I decided to share with you some of the 101 things I have been obsessed with, reflecting on and just have on my mind. This is a "light" serving of my mind because who wants to read about the "heavy" stuff right?

1. Planner (this is the obsessed with item) I've been using a Happy Planner for the last two years which is sort of a combination planner, memory keeper and just fun decorative spot. Then Michaels came out with the new Recollections line and they are sooooo pretty. Personal sized which means tiny but so easy to stick in your purse.


And just so you don't think I'm too obsessed....I bought them at the buy one get one free sale so basically ten bucks apiece! Also the pages are undated so no waste there!


I haven't finished decorating this week yet but just wanted to give you a peek as there are so many different inserts that you can really change things up!

2. Do you want to write smoothly and in vivid colors?  These are great for planners or journals. You can't tell it from the picture but these are the new GEL ink joy pens....way better than the regular ones!


3. In the News....please let's not talk politics or dead gorillas, both are sad. Instead let's talk about "TheSkimm". You can get a daily email that breaks down the latest, hottest topics (with a touch of humor) so you are always "in the know."  You will always have conversation starters if you start your day off reading TheSkimm.


4.  Celebrate. What do we have to celebrate today?

and......


Go ahead pick one or what the heck...get crazy and do BOTH today!

5. Words to Live By....I used to pick a word to live for the year and then I started doing a monthly word and now I try to find words to live by for the week.


 I'm back to blogging and so happy to do so....it frees my soul. I'll be back next week, until then be kind, be honest, and be YOU.
