One Little Word Blog Hop: July

Good morning/afternoon/evening and welcome to the One Little Word Blog Hop.  The hop is hosted by Margie, is international and has a wonderful 18 participants, all waiting and willing to share their One Little Word for 2012 with you.  If you've landed here from Amanda, welcome.  I'm listed near the top of the hop, but don't worry if you get lost following the links ~ there's a full list of participants at the end of this post.   
My husband {The Brainy One} chose our word for 2012enjoy.  Not because he wants us to be frivolous with our lives, but because he wants us to grasp every opportunity, good or bad, that comes our way this year. 
June was, in Ali's words, all about getting out of your head, renewing your commitment to your word, and maybe (just maybe) getting a bit messy. 

Ha!  I just don't do messy.
Instead, I used scraps of brightly coloured card and patterned paper and added recent photos of the three of us.
If you're moving on with the OLW Blog Hop, then your next destination is Cheri and you can find her here.  
But, before you go ... 2012 is also the year of Happy Mail ~ the chance to receive a small parcel in the post, just because.   There's no catch. You don't have to do anything in return.  See this post, if you'd like to join in.  Internationals welcome.
