Fika, a coffee celebration

This weekend I picked up the book Handmade Living by Lotta Jansdotter, recommended through Holly. Although I do not normally do this, I bought the book. On every page I found the most gorgeous inspiration, like this daily coffee celebration…

Fika is a Swedish tradition of breaking from your daily routine to have coffee with friends. Multiple times a day the people of Sweden stop work and sit down to share sweets and a drink together. Lotta describes them as tiny celebrations each and every day- how incredibly wonderful! I think we could all use a celebratory Fika break this week.

PS. The herringbone flats sticking out are mine… fall has finally reached San Diego- yippee.
