Word of The Year
One of the ways that I try to bring more magic into my life is to choose a word or theme for each new year. It’s an idea I picked up from Elise Cripe via Ali Edwards, and 2020 will be my eighth time choosing a word.
- 2020: Devoted
- 2019: Energy
- 2018: Flow
- 2017: Embrace
- 2016: Light
- 2015: Grace
- 2014: Abundance
- 2013: Reach
In 2017 I completed National Blog Post Writing Month for the first time. You can see all my posts from that month of daily writing here.
For a few years now, I’ve made lists of things I’d love to complete by my next birthday. Usually the things on the lists are something fun I’d like to do, or a skill I’d like to learn, or both!
For the last few years I’ve set – and met! – a goal of reading 75 books in the year. I write about the best books I’ve read every few months right here. Also, you can always follow along with my progress on my GoodReads profile.
One of my favourite projects is to make little videos of my daily adventures, edit them together and set them to music. I love to have a little snapshot of what my life looked like at any given time in my life. I usually make videos every time I go on a trip, which you can see all together here. I made seasonal videos when I was in Korea in 2014 and early 2015 which you can see right here. In 2012 I made monthly videos.
Sometimes I take a walk with my camera looking for colours or patterns, and then post the photos here on the blog.

In 2012 I took a photo every day for a year! Click here to see the book I made from the photos.
In 2011 and 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month.
