Though there are many ways to describe hygge, we see it simply as the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. Friends. Family. Graciousness.
What a great word. It seems common sense and all, but I love that one word encompasses all this! It's basically all the good stuff in life. For me, candles are one of life's biggest pleasures, and come cool weather I rely on them more than ever to keep my spirits up.
So I've been putting them around the house where ever I happen to be spending time as the days have been getting shorter. It's like putting a smile on a room for me as I light them up.
We've also had some really great quality time with friends and family in the last few weeks. Lots of laughter and little feet running around, lots of good meals around the table after busy days.
As we come nearer to the holiday season it's important to have these little moments of peace and contentment.
Do you have a trick to keeping your spirits up all Winter, or a take on Hygge? I'm totally in love with this concept.
