Many of you know that I published my first online magasin through Issuu a bit over a month ago – have a look here. The response has been overwhelming to say the least, and I have reached more people than I ever hoped possible. Perhaps it is because the market is flooded with hygge at the moment, and perhaps it is because I managed to make something people like.
I read an article today where an editor said she hated hygge, and declared war on the concept. It was a great friend who told me about the article and it actually made me chuckle. Because – yes, Hygge has become a trendy concept, and apperantly thousands of books have been published, that explore how to hygge, cozy up, and stay warm during the winter months.
We do it here – most of us. We use hygge to get us through the winter months. And the summer months, and the rest of the year. And it probably is a banal concept, where candlelight, simplicity and chilling out – on a low key scale play a big part. But it is also hygge, and being with people, feeling at easy and taking a moment to enjoy what you have. I think it is here to stay. If not all over the world, then at least in Denmark.
But then what you might ask? what will you write about then? Well – the same things I have always written about. Togetherness, family life, kids growing up, travelling, design, food and lots and lots more. Everything and anything that makes my heart beat just that little bit faster.
Thanks for visiting – I truly love your support and comments, – that’s hyggligt, and the reason I keep doing what I love doing.
This is Audrey having a hyggelig time with a bit of ice-cream- And yes – it is in the middle of winter – and that is hyggeligt too.
