Favorite Word:

It is a pretty word to say and I love its meaning. I first heard it when I was very young and some friends named their holiday home "serendipity". It was a beautiful place nestled in the dunes behind a beautiful beach. I had many lovely holidays there and the name is synonymous with happy times for me. They had discovered it by accident and they felt it was by luck that they were able to buy it.
