There's nothing better then "fika"...

Fika is a social institution in Sweden; it means having a break, most often a coffeebreak, with one's colleagues, friends, date, or family. The word has quite ambiguous connotations and can mean anything from taking a break from work or other activities, to going on a date - always including something to eat accompanied by a drink, such as cookies, cakes and even candy. This practice of taking a break, typically with a cinnamon roll or some biscuits or cookies, or sometimes a smörgås or a fruit on the side, is central to Swedish life, and is regularly enjoyed even by the government.

...with your best friends a hot summer day. Also, can you tell I got tanned? (*^_^*) so I'm really ready to wear more sleeveless/strapless tops and short shorts/dresses now. You are welcome summer! I've missed you.
