V is for Vivaciousness

This is my first post for Alphabe-Thursdays, and today's letter is V. Read on to see what I did with it.

V is for the vivaciousness in our lives, for the people who bubble over with energy and spark and give us permission to unabashedly push our laugh buttons. These are the people who bounce back and take us with them.
Our vivacious pets, their paws morphing into springs, sparkle with animation and love when we return, whether we have been at work all day or on a 15 minute errand or a week's vacation. They are always smiling and available.
Vivacious food, primarily chocolate mousse for me, not only feeds our bellies, but also our souls. Think French fries and red Jello and pimiento cheese and bright green grapes. Imagine the smell and taste of freshly made (by you) marinara sauce, poured over angel hair pasta and dusted with freshly grated Parmesan. A deep red Chianti gleams in your favorite crystal glass.
Flowers in bloom feed our need for vivaciousness. Think yellow daisies, red roses, purple violets and orange marigolds. I dare you to look at a blooming cherry tree and not smile! Grab a bunch of sunflowers at the market and put them on your table in a bright container. Vivacious!

Red shoes are vivacious and sexy and satisfying to wear. Red lipstick oozes vivaciousness, as does a red dress. Rubies, sparkling in a necklace send out vivacious laser beams to meet our eyes.
Alphabe-Thursdays bring out or vivaciousness and sends us off in all directions.

Vivacious is such a great word. I love the foods you mentioned.

Thanks for this post. My oldest son left for college this morning, and he embodies the word vivacious (although you usually hear it applied to girls, huh?). And I'm all about red shoes. Have four pairs. But I'm up for more!

Natasha said...

Great word for your first Alphabet Thursday post! I started at N so I am glad Jenny is going to start all over again.

Nice to meet you.

Best wishes,

Charlotte, I'm so happy you've joined in the fun on Thursdays too. Great ways to use vivacious. A really great word.

I am so glad that you have joined us! I am vivacious....eventhough I am in my 50's I can run rings around my pre-k students and my student teachers ask me where all my energy comes from. What i don't tell them is when i get home, cook supper, I crawl into my little chair and rest. Even vivacious people have to rest!

Jo said...

Welcome to Alphabe-Thursday! I enjoyed your post ... and red shoes ... everyone needs them!!! oh and a tube of red lipstick!

Viki said...

Yes, those are all vivacious. I'm especially partial to the chocolate mousse lol. Great first Alphabe-Thursday post.

I do think red is vivacious! I just found out that a dear aquaintance of mine who is over 80 and definitely is vivacious -- traveling, shopping, crafting in her 80's has ovarian cancer. When I saw your post I thought of her! She is a great example to me to live life to the fullest! Joni

Nice images. And I gotta agree about the sunflowers. They are my passion. (For S at alphabe-thursday, I did Sunflowers.) It's at right now if you'd like to check it out.

Great choice for V. I love red shoes! I could be wearing a burlap sack, but if I had red shoes on I would feel great. And pimento cheese, one of my favorite comfort foods and guilty pleasures. Kathy

I loved this stop on my little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "V"!

Even your style of writing felt vivacious in this post. Totally a fun way to write!

I really appreciate you linking up this week.

It was a pleasure having you here!

Thank you!
