#REVERB10 - Day 1

This month, I am going to try my best to participate in #reverb10. I found this through various bloggers and it’s basically a way to close out your year by responding to creative prompts and sharing your response with the world.

2010 has been a big year so I thought it would be good for me to reflect (and to remember) through some kind of unique outlet.


December 1 One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011?

My word for 2010 is dazed.

2010 was filled with new beginnings, big time choices, and major changes for us (just as I had predicted). We went from carefree adults to parents with responsibilities and a mortgage. Despite its wonderment, it has left me feeling completely dazed. I feel someone has hit the 'repeat' button on my life, and I have been living the same day over and over. And while it has never been a bad day, it's hard to remember where this year has gone!

Next year, I want to be fully present in everything I do...and I plan to do a lot. In fact...

My word for 2011 is grow.

Unlike last year, I will not be birthing babies or buying a new house (or at least such major life events are not on the radar)...so I am deeming next year for growth.

(Re)grow my love for trying new recipes. Grow my non-existing photography skills. (Continue) growing this house into a home. Grow this blog. (Keep) growing a bright and healthy Anna.


  1. I'd be sure to follow your progress as you grow! :) Let's try new recipes together and share tips on photography! Am hoping to sign up for a photography class next spring. Will see how it goes. :)

  2. @ knickknacks: I just looked up your hummus recipe the other day and still gathering the ingredients.

    SO...as you can imagine, I don't think I will be able to keep up with you! :) But hopefully I won't fall too far behind.

  3. Those seem to be really great words you picked!!

    By word for 2010 would be more like "Ugh". LOL!
