Sharing what cozy living means to me and why I can’t wait to bring some hygge into my life…
As I type this, big, fluffy snowflakes are falling outside my window. My sweet little man is sprawled out in front of the fire, building all sorts of lego creations while listening to his favourite audio book.
– side note: have you discovered the magic of audio books for your littles? They’ve become the best parenting tool in my arsenal, making everything from quiet play time to bedtime SO much easier!
Hmmmm, now where was I?
Oh yes, sharing this cozy little scene… snow falling, quiet kiddo, sweet stories playing in the background, and this Mama typing away, with a flickering candle burning beside her.
It’s one of those ordinary, everyday sort of moments, but there’s just something special about taking a moment to recognize just how perfect it really is.
And this my friends is what hygge is all about (or, so I’m told anyway).
This little word has crossed my path more times than I could count through the past few months, and each time I see it, I become more + more intrigued. I mean really, if this one little idea is garnering all this attention, it must be pretty amazing, right?!
So, purely in the name of research (and certainly not at all because it’s adorable) I ordered up this Little Book of Hygge. And then because Amazon is so good at marketing even more products to me (or maybe that extra $15 was just burning a hole in my pocket), I couldn’t resist adding this Little Book of Lykke to my cart too.
Just a few pages in and already everything about this little book is resonating with me.
Maybe it’s the snow falling outside + the cold Winter days rolling in. Or, maybe it’s the fact that my entire main floor is totally torn apart and I’m just looking for some comfort + reprieve. Either way, curling up with this book had me dreaming of all things cozy.
The secret of course, is filling the room with the prettiest candles (find my favourites here)…
And then, once you’re so warm + cozy you’re actually dripping with sweat (just me?), wrapping yourself in a luxurious turkish bath towel…
And finally, crawling into the coziest nest of a bed…
Surrounded by cozy textures and (you guessed it), even more candles…
Talk about the makings of the most perfectly cozy evening (or the Sunday afternoon of my dreams!)…
