I feel like someone stabbed me in the leg *and* ran over me with a truck, LOL. “Since the days are cooler and darker it is important to have something to look forward to,” say Hygge in a Box founders Jill Kantor and Lisa Kroft, “this is why hygge is so popular during this time of year.” Wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket, bundling up for a walk with a friend, making a giant pot of delicious stew — now is the time to pull out all the hygge stops — especially on those days when it’s hard just to pull yourself out of bed.

Norlii Box October 2021: Nordic Bed and Breakfast

Happy Saturday, everybody! I hope you’ll get the chance to enjoy at least one slow morning this weekend lingering over breakfast and coffee. Tomorrow we’ll be getting up early to put the turkey in the oven and start on the vegetables so that’s out but Monday I’m going to relax, Scandi style. “Nordic Bed & Breakfast” is the theme of October’s Scandinavian home and lifestyle box, Norlii Box, and it’s a reminder that simple rituals like taking the time to enjoy a soft-boiled egg and a delectable jam can enrich your life by multitudes and turn even the greyest days bright.
