This is where I've been deep thinking and loving every moment of it.
I have walked away from this book knowing unequivocally that we are a "hyggely" family through and through. I do believe it is the core of who we are together and we just didn't realise it had a name and I kind of love that a lot. I love the values and principles so much.
“Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down.”
“Hygge is humble and slow. It is choosing rustic over new, simple over posh and ambience over excitement. In many ways, hygge might be the Danish cousin to slow and simple living.”

I loved the simple delight of this book and principles and gave me so much to think about my own life and reaffirming some of the things I had already being saying and thinking for some time. He just said it in such a beautiful way. I am busy reading his next book too.
"Hygge has been translated as everything from the art of creating intimacy to cosiness of the soul to taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things. My personal favourite is cocoa by candlelight..."
