January 2017: Hygge and Scandinavian Culture

I had the opportunity in January 2017 to teach a 3-week course on Scandinavian history, culture, design, the concept of hygge and sustainable energy systems with a colleague as a pre-departure course for students we are taking on a course trip to Denmark and Sweden in May 2017. Here are a few photos from the course, which included cooking Scandinavian cuisine, yoga, measuring length of commercial wind turbines, completing nature-based, Andy Goldsworthy inspired sculptures in our campus woods, among other activities.

40 Pies

As part of a gift to my husband who turned 40 in 2016, I baked 40 pies in the year of his 40th birthday. The accompanying poster documents each pie in the order they were baked and served. He shared them with friends and co-workers, so over a 6-month period, many people got to 'celebrate' his birthday with him by eating a slice of pie.
