It’s so easy to think that hygge is only something for the fall or winter months, but you can keep that cozy feeling going long after the days lengthen and the temperatures spike. “What’s hygge?” Some of you might be asking. It’s the latest craze sweeping the States, but the people of Denmark have been practicing it for some time. Simply put, it means creating a nice, cozy, comfortable environment while enjoying the simple, good things in life with the special people you surround yourself with.
