Making one’s home a warm, inviting place is a form of art.
Fortunately, I grew up with a mother whose very presence exuded hospitality and warmth.
Lack of money didn’t affect the atmosphere of cheerfulness, genuine love and feeling cared for.
We didn’t have much in the way of worldly things, but we were rich.
My own vision of our home in my childhood is one of bright, airy, clean spaces, warmth, wholesome food, very little television but lots of music, laughter and tons of outdoor time.
Creating a home is a worthy endeavor.
In this modern age, it can be a rare thing to find anyone home at all, let alone happily creating a haven for their family and friends.
People do have to work, but we can also have a vision for our home- creating an atmosphere of comfort and hospitality.
A hygge home.
“Hygge (“heu-gah”). The art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted and alive.
To create well-being, connection and warmth.
A feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other.
Celebrating the everyday.”

After all, isn’t the work and busyness of life directed at making home-life possible?
Life is busy and complicated I know, but I believe in
I believe in its magic, in its ability to comfort, in the endless possibilities of creation within its space.
