Hygge Love ❤

Hey friends,

Just want to check in and tell you my husband, Little Bit and I are all sick. It is some cough/ congestion virus that has been hanging around for a solid week. Yuck!

I was catching up on reading some blog posts last night, when I saw this one! Yes!! This!! I’ve heard the word Hygge, but honestly, I had no idea what it meant until I read this.

She explains it nicely and I thought it’d be a great one to share on this dark, raining day. I love how the months of January through March are such a transition time. The rest between seasons.

Thank you for letting me share your beautiful outlook!

Last January I discovered (to my joy!) for the first time that there was a word, hygge, which summed up just perfectly everything I love most about this cosy wrapped-up time of year. A year on, and hygge has continued to sweep across from its native Denmark to take our countries by storm, revolutionising how we approach wintertime – especially the post-Christmas part of winter. It offers a softer and more rounded alternative to the out-running, diet-beginning resolve of the new year; in the form of a more achievable balance between good health – with fresh air and long, rambling walks – and indulgent nights in – with a little bit of chocolate, a mug of something warming and some cosy time devoted to enjoying good company and home comforts.

  2. So sorry to hear you’re all ill, I had it in November, first time in 3 years, but I was surrounded by littles and olds with their germs at a time of great stress and my immune system said ‘enough!’ and down I went. A few drops of eucalptus essential oil on a bowl of hot (not boiling) water helps with breathing and cleanses the air, or in a little almond or olive oil and rubbed on the chest, will help with the congestion. A few drops of lavender oil on a handkerchief on your pillow can aid sleep (this works best for me). Hope you all feel better soon. 💜

  3. Hi Jess, I wanted to send you a personal message but couldn’t find your email on my phone. And then my message just bounced back and got deleted. Aagh. Anyway I just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of you. Hope you all get better real soon. It’s no fun being sick. Take care and rest up, ok. By order of Dr Miri. 😊 Big hugs to you my friend from across the ocean. Xu ❤️

    • Hi. Thank you. I hope it’s on it’s way out! It’s been pretty awful. Sleeping especially. It’s like the cough alarm comes on as soon as the head hits the pillow. I’m glad you mentioned fluids. They’re drinking lots of water, etc. I haven’t really been, so thanks! :)

    • There sure is!! As bad as we feel, I feel lucky. My friend’s kiddos have projectile vomiting! Seems like there’s viruses everywhere. Thank you. Trying to get rest. Nights are LONG– so much coughing! :)
