This would be one of my favorite parties: a big garden or meadow surrounded by lovely trees and decorated with lots of colorful garlands and paper lanterns. In the center a huge table with flowers as centerpiece, along with yummy cakes, bowls filled to the brim with berries and ice cream.

When you come close to this place, you hear the laughter of all of my girlfriends from around the world. They are sitting in a hammock or on picnic blankets, sipping Hugos or other summerly cocktails. And this party would last till the stars and the first fireflies appear.

I need new words. This thought was on my mind for some time now. Do you know this phenomena: you use always the same words to describe something or when you comment on a post for example? Even when I learn a new word, I use it more than I should be. Therefore this page was perfect for learning and documenting new words, that I can refer back to, if I need one.

    Yes! I use the same words all the same – excited, lovely, ridiculously, etc etc.

    I love that word felicitously. I had to google it, but I love its meaning.
