Who knew their was a fancy word for love letter? But why complicate things? I'll just stick to calling it what it is, thank you very much.
I feel a little smarter thanks to this post! ;) I hope you don't mind, but I shared a link to this post on my blog today: http://authorjess.blogspot.com/2012/07/whats-up-wednesday-great-deals-great.htmlReplyDelete
No, not at all. Thanks so much for mentioning it! I'm glad you enjoyed it enough to share =)Delete
Oh my gosh, I just can't imagine using this in a conversation LOL! x) I'm wondering whether French people are still using this in their conversation. It just sounds very romantic anyway, don't you think so? A special word for love letter! x)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, Amanda! Love your Wordlover posts! <3
PS: I'm sorry I haven't commented on your blog lately! I got sick. :(
I think people would look at me crazy if I tried to sneak it into a conversation, haha! That's a good question! I wonder if they still use it too. I agree it does sound very romantic!Delete
I'm sorry to hear you were sick! Glad your feeling better though =)
