My new word for 2009

(picture courtesy of etsy seller abismythe)

So, my new word for the year is Evolve. Ali Edwards has hosted the word of the year campaign for the last two years and I finally jumped on the bandwagon.

e·volve (-vlv)
v. e·volved, e·volv·ing, e·volves
a. To develop or achieve gradually: evolve a style of one's own.
b. To work (something) out; devise: "the schemes he evolved to line his purse" S.J. Perelman.
2. Biology To develop (a characteristic) by evolutionary processes.
3. To give off; emit.
1. To undergo gradual change; develop: an amateur acting group that evolved into a theatrical company.
2. Biology To develop or arise through evolutionary processes.

So, I hope to evolve as a person. As a wife. As a mother. As a friend. Spritually, physically, emotionally.

I really think that 2009 is going to be a big year. There are so many things to look forward to. Hold on tight because it is going to be a wild ride!
