I’m getting back to basics with the concept of hygge (pronounced HOO-gah), the Danish concept of comfort and creating a feeling of “being safe and allowed to let our guard down.” And I’m delighted to be partnering with Icelandic Provisions because they are absolutely embracing hygge. It’s all about “coziness of the soul” and enjoying simple pleasures, which can be done on a shoestring budget! One of my favorite cozy and comforting snacks is Icelandic Provisions Skyr in a crum-bowl. To encourage everyone to bring some more hygge into their lives, we are giving away crum-bowls to two blog subscribers. To enter, make a comment on the Instagram post letting me know how you’re celebrating hygge!

The Friday Favorites Newsletter #74, sent on April 3, was all about Thriving in Our New Normal, and was inspired by hygge and my partners over at Icelandic Provisions. Check out more below.
