Hello 2011!

I am ready for you.

Last year was all about balance for me.
Over all it was a good year and I managed to find my balance.
The best part was learning to keep my balance.

This year it's all about action.


At first I thought this word was only going to cover one aspect of my life.
But I quickly realized that that wasn't the case.
This exciting word, action, is probably going to be finding it's way into a lot of places around here.


I was really apprehensive about it at first,
but now I'm just excited!


What's your word for the year?

I have never done a word for a year. Maybe I should think about it.
I like your word tough! Most words I see that are being chosen are so introspective, reflective, quiet almost. But not yours. Yours is out there, active and let's kick butt.
I love it. And I will be around to see all of the action on your blog!
Happy new year to you
Xoxo Marianne

hi alisa :) i followed you over from Flickr 365, what a beautiful blog, you are a truly gifted photographer. i have found much inspiration here, thank you. I love that you have 'words' wrapped around your years. i have something similiar - i guess you could call them 'themes'. if 2010 had a word for me, it would be 'refuge'. i did not actually start out knowing that at first. i had other plans while 'life' just took over. i am happy at how it all turned out in the end so that is good. the word that comes to me for 2011 is 'rhythmic'. hmmm. not sure how it will look in the end but so far, that's all i got! :) Happy New Year!

Love the photos, Alisa. We're on the same page. Balance is my word for 2011 too.
Mostly, I'm trying to not REACT to stuff so much emotionally and try to keep cool. I guess that's part of a balancing act, isn't it.
Hugs and Happy New Year!

Alisa,
What a beautiful post. I love those shadow pictures...very professional, my dear! My word is also Hope. Looks like I am not the only one who is seeking it!
Hugs,
Suz

Hi Alisa!
I've been waiting for this post!! I wanted to know what your word was going to be this year. Active....I LIKE IT!!

With the New Year arriving, everyone at work has been talking about their resolutions and wanted to know what mine was. I have told them that I no longer make resolutions. Since I "met" you, I have a word to live by instead. This year, there have been two words floating around me...Joy and Simplicity. It may have to be a 2 word year! What do you think?
Hugs,
~Allie
