Hello, Jean! I love the word onomatopoeia! I always try to use it while playing scrabble if I have a lot of vowels, but so far I've had no luck, LoL.

Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Lovely post; reminds me of my first desk as a teen. That made me feel so awesome and newly inspired to write stories and poems (which were pretty bad unfortunately).
