Hello, beautiful people. And happy October to all of you!

"Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles. It takes away today's peace."

At the beginning of the year, I wrote an article about my favorite Portuguese words, but now I realize that there are so many other equally beautiful words. So, in today's article, I will be sharing with you 12 more beautiful words of the Portuguese language.

This is the article I'm talking about :)

In this list, I will include not only words I find beautiful but also words that I think are "cute", because they sound lovely.
