Hygge was among the shortlist for the 2016 Oxford Dictionary word of the year.
Although Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016, Hygge is quickly trending on Pinterest & Instagram as a decorating lifestyle.
According to Oxford Dictionary …
[mass noun] a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture)
According to “Country Living” … Hygge is a Danish concept that encompasses a feeling of cozy contentment & well being through enjoying the simple things in life.
According to Pooh … “You don’t spell it…you feel it.” – Pooh” ― A.A. Milne
Included in the Introduction to “The Little Book of HYGGE” by Meik Wiking.
Obsessions with all things cozy sounds good to me! So lets hygge up our family room for long leisurely evenings either enjoying a good book or playing board games with friends …
Just remember, what makes you feel cozy and comfortable in your home is probably different from someone else.
And that’s the point it’s your space to create your idea of what hygge means to you and how you share it with others.

My Personal Real Life Truth ~
I just finished reading “The Little Book of HYGGE” by Meik Wiking. It’s a fun quick read that well, just makes you feel all hygge inside! I realized after reading “The Little Book of HYGGE” that I’ve just created my Hyggekrog (“a nook”) in my family room. Just by moving one piece of furniture, my husbands Grandfathers desk next to the sofa. Grandaddy’s desk is his favorite piece and we’ve moved around the house a lot. But finally our treasured desk has a home. A perfect spot to curl up with a cup of tea, a throw, some pillows, low lighting and a few magazines … life is good.
Happy Friday, have a great weekend!
