The Beginning, in words.


I got sucked into the blog world this past summer with the launch of my food blog, nosh spot.

However, after struggling to maintain the blog over the last couple of months, I came to the realization that the blog theme was too narrow. Yes, I love food. But, I also love many other things and am subsequently, aching to document them.

So, I am going to give blogging another try with "Exquisite Banana."

The name of this blog originated by randomly selecting two of my favorite words from my personal "Words I Love" list. When I was a sophomore in college, I began casually cataloging (in a word document on my computer) a list of words that are beautiful to me. Their beauty lies either in their meanings or, simply, in their sounds. Here is the list as it appears today:

adoration
illustration
bliss
vivid
illustrious
inspire
magical
heart
lovely
liquid
bungalow
splendid
quintessential
celebrate
sumptuous
scrumptious
sensuous
joy!
romantic
muse
savory
banana
clarity
intrigue
sapphire
curious
cinnamon
creativity
radiant
grace
cashmere
delicious
splendid
eloquence
sublime
perfect
dazzle
holiday
whisper
natural
infinity
passionate
beloved
agape
harmonious
peace
enrapture
gusto
treasure
smitten
breezy
cozy
succulent
wonder
adventure
adorable
quirky
imagination
brilliance
illumination
fiery
nectar
exquisite
wanderlust
delicate
intrigue

My blog name could have easily been "Quirky Nectar" or "Cinnamon Brilliance." I must admit, I like the ring of "Exquisite Banana." What combination would you have selected? Do you have your own "beautiful words" list? What words would you include and why?
