I'm loving this....

And hoping our home has this feeling for us and our girls. Now and as they get older.

Gemütlichkeit is a German abstract noun that has been adopted into English. Its closest equivalent is the word “coziness”; however, rather than merely describing a place that is compact, well-heated and nicely furnished (a cozy room, a cozy flat), Gemütlichkeit connotes the notion of belonging, social acceptance, cheerfulness, the absence of anything hectic and the opportunity to spend quality time.

  1. I LOVE that word, and I'm with you, my dream would be that our home was like that too. That's the goal right? If it isn't like that yet, it doesn't mean we can't work toward it.
