Meet Tove Maren – Hygge in the Now
Hejsa! (it’s Danish for “Hi there!”)
I am Tove Maren, a Danish American writer, fluent in Danish, English, and sarcasm. After 20+ years in the financial services industry, I followed my true calling in 2015. I became a full-time writer and translator.
I am the proud mother of four boys: Jacob, Jordan, Jansen, and Jonah and wife to a very tall, awesome, and funny man, Paul. Our family also includes two Siberian Huskies: Jupiter and Juno as well as countless houseplants. (Seriously, don’t ask me to count the plants. It’s somewhere between “small greenhouse” and “jungle”.)
During the summer of 2018, we packed up our LEGO and a few other important things and moved clear across the country, from South Florida to the Greater Seattle area. We are now settled into the Pacific North West lifestyle and fully embracing the Danish saying: “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes!”
Living in the Greater Seattle area has drastically changed our quality of life, for the better. The outdoor-lifestyle is perfect for our family, for hygge and it inspires a lot of my writing.
My unique perspective on life is influenced by a Danish childhood, a dry sense of humor, and experiences from living in the United States since 1992.
Hygge has always been a constant presence and a natural part of my life, from cherishing quality time with loved ones to our hygge-inspired home decor.
I am excited to have you start your own hygge journey alongside mine.
Hygge is more than coziness and wool socks. Hygge is a mindset and a different way to look at the world. Hygge means to embrace life’s imperfect moments, knowing full well that it’s the imperfection that makes them perfect.
On Hygge in the Now you will find tips, inspiration, and fun ways to add more hygge and happiness to your own life.
