a book to get lost in. a chunky knit blanket. a new pie recipe. flickering candlelight. a hot, hot bath. pretty papers and stamps for love notes. bright roses. a bowl of mandarins. documentaries. fluffy white bath towels, freshly washed in lavender. friday afternoons. fog dancing in the bare branches. devotchka on repeat. a book of mary oliver's poetry, for the train, for the post office wait, for while the laundry spins. strong black coffee with a kiss of brown sugar and molasses. much hygge.

So of course I Googled hygge...mostly to figure out how to pronounce it, but in the process, I found out this word describes what you practice each and every day and have done so for as long as I've known you! Now I have a word for it but will surely murder it when I try to pronounce it! XOReplyDelete
I wasn't always a fan of January because it gets so cold but now I love the excuse to curl up with a good book under a blanket!ReplyDelete
Christy, I too googled hygge (: Alexa, it's the perfect description for your tree house & the life you & Chris are building. Ummmmmm I need more hygge in my life (how do you use this word in a sentence??) -- my life is much like living with a pack of wolves (in the best way) right now (hah, more on this later). xoxoReplyDelete
