One word a week for one year; one life changed forever. This memoir walks through a year in the life of the author as she reflected on a word of the week. "It seemed like such an ordinary year at the time. We planted a garden, we celebrated holidays, we watched the seasons change, and we went on vacation. But we also moved and made career changes and experienced life in all of its everyday, miraculous glory. If I hadn’t been recording it along the way, we might have missed it. "My Year in Words is significant because I paid attention, I kept track, and I wrote it down. What are you missing by not doing these things?"
