Word of the Week: soigne

Book Club: This Friday’s post will be the Slow Reader Friday discussion of Christine Caine’s UnstoppableThis book is quickly becoming one of my favorites!

Compassion Counseling Center: We have $ 760 to raise by 1/15/15. If you would like to help people in our area get much-needed counseling, please go to the link to the right and donate. Memorial/Tribute gifts can be given in honor of a special person in your life and organizations can become a Compassion partner for a contribution of at least $ 500. Our partners and our Tribute honorees will be published on our web site. Compassion is now a 501(c)(3) public charity and U.S. donations to Compassion are tax deductible.

The 12 Days of MIP:  Beginning this Wednesday I will start revealing my favorite blog posts for this year. Do you have favorites? Go here and tell me about why you liked a particular post!

Last week’s WOW was refulgence. Merriam-Webster Online says that refulgence is a radiant or resplendent quality or state. This means my family is always refulgent! 🙂

Today’s WOW is soigne. My inner Frenchwoman would say that there’s a French/Romance bent to this one, so let’s see what I can come up with for definition guesses today:

soigne: (swän-ˈyā)  1. your swan 2. a sign indicating where the nearest bistro is located 3. a suave male model (Okay. It’s official. I have no earthly idea for this word!)

What’s your definition guess? Go here to tell me what you think.
