Hygge

Hygge, pronounced, hue-gah,is a Danish word that is a feeling or mood that comes taking pleasure in making ordinary, every day moments more meaningful, beautiful or special. Cozy is a very hygge, and has become very popular and mainstream; just search for it on Pinterest. I grew up with hygge, and have continued to ...practice?...live?...it on an everyday basis, though until last year I never knew there was a word, (and a hundred books) explaining it. One example is that in the mornings we plug in all our twinkle lights, flip the switch on the gas fireplace, pour some coffee, and snuggle on the sofa as we listen to 1940's music. Cozy and meaningful is a way of life here. This morning we awoke to 6 inches of snow, the perfect hygge weather.
