Congratulations to Julia Crowley (a.k.a. “Wine Julia”) in Eugene, OR! We loved the simple elegance of her #nisseandhygge photo and decided to award her the first prize for our “show us your hygge” photo contest!
Julia received a copy of Chef Gunnar Karl Gíslason’s book “The Hygge Life: Embracing the Nordic Art of Coziness Through Recipes, Entertaining, Decorating, Simple Rituals, and Family Traditions”. During our regular January business travels to NYC, we have been very lucky to do a few hygge themed dinners at Chef Gíslason’s celebrated Nordic restaurant Agern located in @grandcentralstationnyc – we are huge fans of his food and he is an exceptional person! Happy to send Julia a copy of his gorgeous book!
Congratulations to Scott Anderson in Minneapolis, MN! We loved the rugged winter hardiness of your #nisseandhygge photo out to dinner around a campfire on a frozen lake – as only a Minnesotan can do! This is #hygge at its best – in harmony with nature, even when the world around you is frozen!!
Scott received a hygge themed flask to help keep him warm in the remaining winter months in the great northernmost state outside of Alaska!
