WElcome to the hygge & cwtch blog

Hello, I am Annie and this is my Hygge & Cwtch blog created in Wales and inspired by the Danish hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) way of life. I believe a lot of goodness flows from choosing to live in the moment and take things simple and slow. We all need a bit of time and space to relax, take comfort and enjoy the good things in life with good people.  I believe connecting with nature's beauty and nurturing power and indulging in moments of everyday joy is a true tonic.
