April: One Little Word Blog Hop

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 28 participants, all waiting and willing to share their One Little Word for 2012 with you.  If you've landed here from Stephanie, welcome.  I'm listed near the middle 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.  The focus for March was to take action with your word.

March for us has been difficult.  That's an under statement, actually.  March has been down right horrible.  But even in the horrible times, there's always a chink of light trying to break through.  And for me, March promised the thrill of trans-Atlantic travel.
After talking through a sketchy plan to meet my newly-found relatives in the USA with The Brainy One, he gave me 55,000 of his air miles ~ enough to fund London to New York return in Premium Economy.   
 Oh, lucky, lucky me!
If you're moving on with the OLW Blog Hop, then your next destination is Eydie and you can find her here.  
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.

Thank you for sharing your story. My OLW is Enjoy as well, and there have been many times that bringing it forth, in not-so-enjoyable moments has helped me to turn things around. Your DH sounds like a wonderful person and I do hope you ENJOY this next adventure.
