Moments of Hygge # 2 | Olympus Pen Giveaway

Having fallen in love with Hygge and my quest for a more positive and happier outlook on life, I decided that this would be my starting point for my Instagram community. Hygge is something that a lot of us already embody in our day to day life - without even realising it and my Instagram community #momentsofhygge now has over 200 photos so a huge thank you to those who've shared your hygge moments already.

So for those of you who're unfamiliar with the term, Hygge, a Danish word, (pronounced “HUE-gah”) is described in a number of ways. It can be seen simply as the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. Friends. Family. Graciousness. It's often described as a feeling or mood that can come from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, everyday moments more meaningful, beautiful or special. Some refer to hygge as an “art of creating intimacy” either with yourself, friends and your home.

My moments of hygge are;
  • Coffee from my cafeteria, not instant, taking my time to enjoy it's aromas.
  • Babywearing, being close to your baby is pretty much ultimate Hygge for me.
  • Seeing my children play (completely squabble free).
  • A sneaky snooze with my Hubby, whilst the kids watch TV in our bed. 
  • Flicking through old photographs at my Grandma's house.
  • Laughing until I cry with my three best buddies.
  • A pub lunch after a cold (and wet, because let's face it, it's Britain) family walk.
  • Lazy Sunday at my Dad's house. Children often on their own adventures in his garden.
  • Random drives. 
  • Frosty mornings.
  • My journey to work (I know, I'm weird right - but the landscape is quite beautiful on a misty morning).

I would love for you hop over and join in on Instagram or why not add to my Photobox over on Million Eyez?
