fika
this is a word if you visit Sweden you are sure to hear...
it's to have a little break... with friends... with coffee...
and treats!
Every day... every where... fika!

I love it... it helps you slow down a little and sit and relax... and my gosh the treats... usually a bakery item... or even just a little cookie... but do you see those candies... a weakness for me really.
I could eat Swedish candy every day! I'm actually glad it's hard to find here... ikea is a little far to go weekly too!
In Sweden though at every grocery story there is a candy section... with bins from floor to as tall as you are full of candies waiting to be scooped and brought home to your sweet children!

but really I think it's more than about coffee and treats... it's about taking the time to check in... with your body... with the people you love... to slow life down a bit and sit.
it's beautiful.

  1. Sounds like a pretty good practice. Maybe something we should start in our house.
