Happy Monday my friends! I hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend. The four of us went to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and totally enjoyed it. Then we hunkered down for the ‘winter storm’, which was really much ado about nothing where I live and ended the weekend by sending my oldest back to school. ☹ It’s a tough one, I miss her terribly but know she is where she is supposed to be, pursuing her dreams.
With both my kiddos back in school, I finally feel like it’s time to end my Christmas vacation as well. I’ve been easing into it, but this week…it’s full-on. No more excuses.
That being said, I have been collecting some interesting tidbits from the Googler that I want to share with you today.
But before I do that, I want to remind to enter to win the $150 Gift Card from The Container Store. You can find the entry form towards the bottom of this post.
Have you heard the term ‘hygge’ (‘hooga’)? Well, it’s a thing now and I’d like to believe that I’ve been an aspiring ‘hygge-ist’ for several years. Hygge is a Danish term, which at its simplest means, making every moment more special and is closely translated as ‘coziness’.
I think hand-in-hand with creating a little hygge in a home would be reducing whatever stress might be there. Real Simple details 9 No-Regrets Way to Reduce Stress here.
Remember our fine-feathered friends during the cold winter month by taking a few moments to make one of these.
And House Beautiful swears we’ll be ‘over-the-moon-happy’ if we do these.
And if getting in more steps or losing weight is on your list of 2017 resolutions, how about this app to give you a little $incentive$ to reach your goals?
Well, my friends, I am off to finish the declutter of my office/craft room…if you could only see it now! Yowza. But it will be oozing hygge-ness when it’s done!
Wishing you a wonderful, hygge-filled week.
