"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Lovely

Lovely...or admirable, adorable, alluring, amiable, attractive, beauteous, bewitching, captivating, comely, dainty, delectable, delicate, delicious, delightful, enchanting, engaging, enjoyable, exquisite, fair, good-looking, gorgeous, graceful, gratifying, handsome, knockout, lovesome, nice, picture, pleasant, pleasing, pretty, pulchritudinous, rare, scrumptious, splendid, stunning, sweet, winning. Such a sweet, simple word can have such a wide range of meaning and can describe so many things.

Lovely can describe the wild violets that bloom each spring in our yard and make me so reluctant to cut the lawn for the first time...
It can also a hand crocheted Christening set that's been worn by all 3 of your boys...
or a delicate piece that combines some of the traditional hardanger stitches and motifs with a bit of cross stitch into the modern biscornu (a lovely eight sided pin cushion)...
Lovely can also describe the sweet post written by a dear friend or the surprise card via snail mail from your sister by choice...the card that reminds you just how lucky you are to have her in your life...
Thank you muchly Lynn and Jennifer. Y'all are great for my ego.

What do you have in your life that you would describe as lovely?

Sheliza and Angela already said what I want to say.

You, Kristin, are lovely. And not just because of the purple hair.
