Snuggled in

It’s sleeting and snowing outside. And quite cold. So as we listen to the sleet tap against the windows, we’re inside practicing the Danish art of hygge. According to the Visit Denmark website, hygge (pronounced hooga) means “creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too. There’s nothing more hygge than sitting round a table, discussing the big and small things in life. Perhaps hygge explains why the Danes are the happiest people in the world?”

Hygge to us is a warm cup of cocoa, like this recipe

Hygge is a warm and fuzzy blanket, chunky knit throws, slouchy wool socks, warm fires, good books and snuggling up with our loved ones and fur babies. Hygge is the warmth of a space, as well as the warmth of our hearts.
