Ailurophile - a cat-lover
Brood - To think alone
Dalliance - A brief love affair.
Efflorescence - Flowering, blooming.
Lilt - To move musically or lively.
Scintilla - A spark or very small thing.
Sumptuous - Lush, luxurious.

Halcyon Happy, sunny, care-free. Lagniappe A special kind of gift. Love Deep affection. Sempiternal Eternal. Talisman A good luck charm. Vestigial In trace amounts. Woebegone Sorrowful, downcast.
