Samantha, my daughter and favorite English major geek, talks about her love for language today in her guest post...
I don't know about all of you, but I love a good word or collection of words. Some of my favorite words are the following:
kismet (the name I wish I could name my future daughter, but decided to name my car instead)
I pick a favorite word basically because of how it feels to say or hear. It just feels good to form the word in your mouth, or it makes a beautiful sound. Anyone else have favorite words, or am I just a weird English major?
What I might love even more than words is quotes. When I was a student teacher, I put a "Quote of the Day" on the board every day to get my students thinking. To be honest, a lot of the time I found my quotes on Pinterest based on some beautiful design work...
Beautiful words? Check. Beautiful design? Double check. I found this print by Alyssa Nassner around Valentine's Day this year.
C.S. Lewis is a personal favorite author, philosopher, theologian (can he be my favorite everything??), etc. and I think he would have particularly loved this illustration by this lovely lady. I know I do.
Goodness gracious, do I love watercolor. (Oh, you love watercolor too? Then you should go here.) This print and others are sold by The Wheatfield on Etsy. The colors are just marvelous.
Here are a few more designs that are just for fun :)
Abraham Lincoln, teehee.
