According to Louisa Thomson Brits from her book, The little book of hygge, "Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is a quality of presence and experience of belonging and togetherness. It is a feeling of being warm, safe, comforted, and sheltered." Hygge is more than just blankets, fires, and cozy times spent with those you love. It is an intentional way of living your life to be more open to those around you, while still finding comfort and safety in the everyday still moments of solitude.

The holidays are here and it is absolutely the most wonderful time of the year! Holiday food and drink is one of my favorite ways to celebrate. After giving up most of my dairy intake last year, I was concerned I would miss out on egg nog this holiday season. I have tried several alternative soy nogs, and none really hit the spot. As I was strolling through our local grocery store, I noticed my favorite brand of almond milk (Califia Farms) was selling holiday nog.
