vorfreude (n.)

the joyful, intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures

This beautiful word was an easy choice. Sitting here, currently 5 days away from the due date of my first child it’s difficult to think of anything else aside from holding her for the very first time. No longer able to find a comfortable position, and anticipating the energy it will take to reach that ‘future pleasure’, makes this a rather intense anticipation indeed!



What immediately comes to mind when you chew on this beautiful word?
