Marvel is the Word

Each year I choose a word as a theme for some daily trait I'd like to cultivate. This year MARVEL is the word. There are so many WOW moments that pass me by each day because I just wasn't paying attention. I think it came to me when I was browsing on Pinterest and saying to myself "Wow, great, gee" at so many things that people took the time to notice and post or pin. So, thank you to the people of Pinterest for the inspiration!

We went to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at Navy Pier yesterday. This thumbnail records a Wow moment for me. The color, the light and the shadows looked just like the temperature felt…Brrr.

May your 2013 be a journey of marvelous moments!


  1. I love your word for the year! Beautiful thumbnail too!

  2. I MARVEL at your creative pages... so well laid out, so eye catching... I'm looking forward to seeing more from you this year to Marvel at... saw someone else on a blog today that chose a 'word' for the year... I'll have to think on that... not sure I can pick just one... any suggestions for something easy LOL

  3. Elaine, I've used quite a few over the years. Some of my favorites are: Intention, Grace, Kindness, Caretake the Moment, Create.

    I find it interesting to see how the scope of the "word" expands as the year goes on.

  4. Beautiful sketch and wonderful word! Hope you do have a marvelous year! Wish I was in Chicago to take your journaling class too :-)
