Alexandra and Koen co-own Hygge Life, an online and retail store in Vail, Colorado that sells Nordic items to help create a hyggelig atmosphere in the home. Their story began when they met in Colorado and fell in love. A couple of years later, they found themselves traveling around Europe in their camper van selling poffertjes and textiles on their own search for hygge. Alexandra knew they needed to bring hygge back to the United States.
The couple recently wed on a mountaintop in Colorado at a self-described hygge wedding with their family and closest friends. They strongly believe that everyone could use more pursuance, recognition, and enjoyment of the little things in life.
