2013 and my "word"

So we spent a quiet New Years Eve at home with the kids this year.  As we were waiting for the midnight fireworks I thought about the New Year and my resolutions. 

While I have a long list of things I would like to achieve I also wanted to come up with a word to live by this year. Something to guide me in everything I do. The word that kept coming to me was Savour.

I think I was looking for something that would make me stop and appreciate the little things in the midst of the busyness of day to day life.

Savour - to delight in, to revel in, appreciate, experience, luxuriate in, relish, partake.

I want to savour the moments with family and friends. Make more time to catch up and maintain close connections. 

I want to savour the bliss of a good book, those nights where I stay up reading while the rest of the house sleeps.

I will try to savour the little things, new stationery, time to sit and read a magazine, fresh sheets, cuddles with the boys, sharing a love of The Real Housewives with Simon - laughing over the silliness of these women, delicious food, oh so many things to savour and really appreciate.

Savour,it's a good word. 
Have you chosen a word for yourself this year?


  1. Perfect word. And a beautiful one to live by.
    Happy New Year gorge xx

  2. That is a beautiful word and spells out your love of spending time with your kids and hubby :)
    Hope you had a great new years - the quite ones with loved ones are usually the best!

  3. Love your word. It's perfect. I've chosen a few words to live by this year but 'explore' is at the top of the list. Happy New Year and all the best for 2013 :)

  4. Oh Simone how funny! That's exactly my word too! My aim is to slow down and to savour what this gorgeous life has to offer us... I've made a list of everything I want to do, expereince and learn. I'm going to savour every little last drop of the next 362 days ahead...

  5. Savour is a good word! I liked simple, but I am stealing BETTER from some others. I want to be better this year. X

  6. I love it, simone! if I wasn't all gung-ho about employing myself this year, I would totally be stealing your word as mine...! I am still deciding.. am thinking DO. less thinking and more doing.. happy new year, lovely! x

  7. That's a brilliant word.
    Happy new year to you.
    :-) x

  8. That's a wonderful word for the year! I have chosen "give" and I can't wait to see how it resonates with me this year.
    Happy 2013!!
