Big_Vocabulary_ShowoffSo what you just read are 10 words and one bonus word(as a crazy cat lady I had to include “ailurophile”) we rarely hear anymore, but that sound delightful.  I love words, but I feel like my vocabulary is slipping (like the fact that I use the terms “selfie” and “hashtag” on a regular basis).

So happy Word Wednesday!  Let’s see if myself or any of you can slip a few of these words into your conversations or writing in the upcoming week.

See you tomorrow for an all new blog in my #93daysofblogging challenge!
