‘Tis the season for cookies, clementines, hot chocolate and pomegranates. Eat, and repeat. Like my Christmas decorations, every part of my merry making this year has been pared down to the very basic and most essential, and I can honestly say I’m enjoying the lead up to the holidays far more than any other year.
In place of vibrant holiday decorations, I’ve decked my halls with candles, fairy lights, greenery and a Christmas tree that’s sporting nothing more than white lights and oven-dried orange slices. My minimalist approach is mostly due to my curious, climbing toddler, but it’s also a reflection of my obsession with all things hygge (you can read more about it and this Danish word over on SavvyMom).
