Word of the Week Wednesday: exquisite


This Wednesday’s Word of the Week is: exquisite.

Exquisite means especially charming or beautiful or of rare excellence.

The word is a little precious, but I like it because it gives a little extra.

Rather than simply calling something beautiful, you can call it exquisite.  I find its rarity adds a bit extra to the sentiment.

It comes from Latin meaning sought out.
