Hygge - Danish word roughly translates to coziness. I came across a news show one night about a year or so ago that was talking about searching for Hygge. I fell in love with how this little word can be and mean so much. 
Hygge pronounced hoo ga, can mean an atmosphere of relaxation and gratitude. 
A feeling of contentment or well being, a sanctuary. 
Hygge can be the smell of cinnamon buns baking or the warm toasty feel of a fire place on a cold night. 
Hygge can be a smile in passing or a tip of the hat in greeting.
Hygge can be taking pleasures in the presence of gentle soothing things. That is why I made this word banner to hang in my sewing room.
