Quote for Today: Louisa Thomsen Brits

We all hygger: gathered around a table for a shared meal or beside a fire on a dark night, when we sit in the corner of our local cafe or wrap ourselves in a blanket at the end of a day on the beach.

Lying spoons, baking in a warm kitchen, bathing by candlelight, being alone in bed with a hot water bottle and a good book – these are all ways to hygge.

Hygge draws meaning from the fabric of ordinary living.

It’s a way of acknowledging the sacred in the secular, of giving something ordinary a special context, spirit and warmth and taking time to make it extraordinary.

― Louisa Thomsen Brits, The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Living Well
