Whether it’s the post-holiday slump or just the general malaise that comes with the cold winter season, it’s easy to feel down this time of year. It’s been debated, but it’s generally felt that the lack of sunshine and warmth has both emotional and physical effects on us.
This said, I’ve always wondered how this might compare for people living in the Scandinavia. You know – places that are known for having super long dark winter days. Well, you might already have heard of hygge (pronounced similar to “hue-ga”), a philosophy in Denmark that translates to coziness, a welcoming atmosphere, and enjoying the good things in life.
Odds are you’ve already experienced hygge without even realizing it. Christmastime (and all the songs that describe it) is the perfect explanation of how to get your hygge on. It’s the time of year that we most embrace and enjoy the chill of … Read More
As 2017 begins, many of us are setting goals and resolutions for the new year. One that I’m seeing pop up quite a bit among friends, family, and many bloggers I follow is that they’d like to simplify. In my own case, that’s a constant challenge for our family, especially with the “glut of stuff” that we’ve discovered during our move.

Whatever you choose, the coming of a new year is the perfect time to hit the reset button on life and analyze the areas of your life where you’re totally killing it – and where you could use some work.
While I’ve got a ton of areas to work on (don’t we all?!), I like to pick a single word that helps focus my attitude and attack strategy, as it were. This year I also made a casual list of specifics – from finding constructive ways to destress with yoga and essential oils to creating time each week to write – but the ultimate goal can be summed up in one word: POSITIVITY.
Originally, my goal was to “focus” more, but I felt this word encapsulated the true goal of 2017. Many, myself included, found … Read More
The holidays are marked with such vibrant memories we get to December and can hardly believe a whole year has past. Has it been a whole year already? I remember when… One of our favorite things to do at the end of December is look back and remember the last twelve months and celebrate what made the year special. In that spirit here is Thirsties 2016 Year in Review.
2016 was a year full of amazing new products and fabulous cloth diaper prints and colors. Starting us off in January was the release of our Valentine’s print, “Straight to My Heart.”
