My to-read pile is about to tower over the roof of my house, and reading books such as “Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers isn’t going to help that out any. This beautiful collection of vignettes and illustrations highlights different women writers from history, and then suggests FURTHER READING!
Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers
I picked up a digital copy for my e-reader, but will definitely be seeking out a physical book to keep handy at all times. The illustrations are mesmerizing and the poetic vignettes inspired by these women are worth embroidering on my pillows.

Every morning for the past few years, I’ve jotted a quick note of something I’m grateful for. It helps start the day on a positive note, and puts my mind somewhere cozier.
This year, I decided to focus each month with a theme. Get really specific. Inspired by one of my Christmas presents, “The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living, I decided to write down all things “cozy” (the definition of Hygge – pronounced hoog-a).
Being cozy is an enormous luxury, as I found out by these daily notes. Warm water, dry socks, and sweets aren’t something any human should take for granted, because not everyone is so fortunate to have these.
Hope you enjoy and find ways to embrace your good fortune of hygge!
