See ya next year.

6 words graphicCouldn’t help it. It’s just the kid in me, and it’s been especially on display lately. This edition of Six Words has to do with wishes for the new year. With all the diets and life plans, we’re taking charge of the season of resolutions and turning new leaves.

But wishes still have a spot in the madness.

Every month, I compile a post called “6 Words.” Hemingway inspired it when he said any story can be told in a six-word sentence. I ask bloggers, friends, strangers, and a few strange blogger friends to respond to a prompt.


What’s your new year’s wish for 2015, in six words?

We wished for time to slow and peaceful births. Fun moments and bountiful chocolate. (What would a 6 words post be without chocolate?) We wished for books, understanding, and smaller butts. And Zen. We could use some Zen.

Check out the wonderful wish list you created here.
