WEverb Day One: compose [CREATE]

In the month of December I'll be participating in WEverb12, which means that my blog posts will be made up of my responses to a series of prompts. The first prompt is to create a Haiku for 2012 plus bonus points for creating one for 2013. The first thing I had to do was google how to write a haiku. It's been a while!

Here's what I came up with for 2012:

Eyes sparkle as she
explores the world around her.
The light of my life. 

This past year was all about watching Little m grow and learn and my oh my, it's been a wonderful experience being a stay at home mom. I am so thankful that I get to spend my days with her.

And here's what I came up with for 2013:

Regaining the me
who I once used to be - but  
only much better.

I finally feel as though I have a grasp on motherhood and next year I'm very excited to get a bit of the old me back. This means doing a bit of traveling, getting into better shape, and taking time to look after myself. Only, I can never return to the old person I used to be. Now that Little m is here, I find that I'm more patient, more loving, and I take time to enjoy the little things in life. It can only get better from here.

For me, the point of participating in REverb12 is to take the time to reflect on the year 2012. It was a great one and I'm excited to get some of my thoughts about it down on "paper". 


  1. Taking the time to smell the roses is always a good thing. Just dont ask me to write a haiku :)
