Oh the dark winter months. We have been blessed with a mild start to this winter but we all know that the snow is knocking on our door along with the cold that makes you just want to wear a scarf all day long and curl up on the couch. Well it turns out that embracing that cozy factor could be just what you need in order to crack the winter doldrums. This magical, mystical feeling is "hygge", the Danish word roughly translates to "coziness".  In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too. There's nothing more hygge than sitting round a table, discussing the big and small things in life. Perhaps hygge explains why the Danes are the happiest people in the world?  It has been a bit of a buzzword around the internet but I really think that there is something to it. We already eat dinner as a family but we have started lighting candles every night and it does make it a little more special and yes, cozy. So bring on the old man winter. We are ready with hot cocoa, board games, legos and plenty of warm, fuzzy socks. 

loving on his blocks.
