Hygge: Danish. Widely reported to be untranslatable. Means being cozy, happy, in fellowship, in the moment, happy at home.

Snow outside, the smell of apple crisp inside, lit candles and a bottle of wine will do it. Sparks and I sat at the table for over an hour, that evening, while Mimi happily played around us. We got up because it was her bedtime.

If only we could drink a bottle of wine every night…

  1. There is a Dutch translation: gezellig (also a word that doesn’t really translate into other languages, apart from Danish).
