WOW: winsome

winsome

 

This week’s Word of the Week is: winsome.

It’s been a while, so I have decided to restart the tradition with a nice word.

Winsome means sweetly or innocently charming; winning; engaging.

I think it has a wholesome feel to it.  It comes from the Middle English word wynn meaning joy.
