I happened to be watching a Rick Steves show on Denmark and in the show they were describing a way of living that they had. It was called hyggelig (hoo.gl.ee). This hyggelig meant you always have a drink, some food, and at the very least a candle between you and your company. It meant feeling cozy at the very base translation of the word but actually much more, it was your surroundings without anything that would make you feel ill at ease or emotionally overwhelmed. It was actually the pursuit of serenity, of comfy, of homey, of anything that brought that warm fuzzy to your soul.

My jaw dropped at this Danish discovery of self. That one single word summed up the pursuit of my entire life. Hyggelig!!! This blog is about just that, all the things that make me feel hyggelig. My only hope is that they inspire you to find your own hyggelig too. Imagine a world full of hyggelig, just imagine...

Good bye blogger hello hyggelig me!

It's official! With great amounts of help and work from my Honey www.hyggelig.me is up and running. So, I say goodbye to blogger and thank it for starting me on my blogging path. Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to start blogging which lead me to a wonderful outlet for all my hyggelig thoughts. If you'd still like to follow me come on over to hyggelig.me which has a store, all my latest twitter tweets, and is much easier to use, comment, and navigate!

I hope to see you there!
