What is Hygge?
My favorite season is here! November and December, the holiday months filled to the brim with hygge and cozy living. So, what is hygge? Hygge (hoo-gah) is a Danish word for the concept of coziness and contentment, especially during the busier times of life. Hygge = Cozy. It’s enjoying the little things that make up a day; the joy of everyday living.
A hygge lifestyle is one of simplicity, focusing on the good things in life, like a homemade baked good and a cup of coffee, warm candlelight, delicious drinks, warm sweaters and socks, a tromp in the woods and then a hot dinner at home. It is focusing on all the warm moments that make up a day.
Here’s the first look at “Cozy Christmas Baking: A Hygge Inspired Christmas”. These first few weeks on Amazon are especially important, so please stop by after you get your copy and leave us a review!
We also put together a book trailer, for y’all. It’s filled with cozy shots of our daily life and a sampling of the delicious goodies that you’ll find recipes for in the cookbook. You just might feel inspired to head into the kitchen, whip up a batch of Chocolate Shortbread Bars and take the kids sledding. You have been forewarned!
