I've been inspired by several blog posts recently to come up with a Word of the Year. This post, over at Angel Jem's City Cottage, was really lovely. Truly there are many things to celebrate. My Word of the Year is inspired by the desire to celebrate financial independence (retirement may not be just around the corner, but it's peeking out) so I've chosen Thrift. No spending unless it is essential, moderation when spending is called for (gifts, etc.), and a use it up, wear it out, make it do philosophy.
