Nothing beats the Swedish region Dalarna when it comes to Summer Soltice aka Midsummer aka Midsommar in Swedish. A whole day of celebration, good food, dancing, singing and then a looong, bright night. To top it off really nice you should, according to old folklore, pick seven different flowers and jump over seven fences, during
For me Dalarna meant summer when I was a kid. It was here we spent almost all of our summer vacations. Both my mum and dad’s family lives here. But the last three years or so I’ve been working so much every summer that I haven’t found the time to visit my roots and family..

Today is my mum’s birthday! Single mother to four kids.. Both me and my sister are diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, so is my mom. Growing up wasn’t easy all the time. I was even in a wheelchair for a year. Even though she herself was sick she fought for our rights in school, took us

The light in Torekov is something special, especially when reflected on the windows coated with all the salt from the sea. Spent many summer days in my mother’s friend Helena’s house.

My sister Sunna graduated this past Friday from high school/upper secondary school! With super good grades and I’m so proud of her!

Images from my little sister Svea’s school conclusion in the church. It’s hard to believe that it´s 15 years since I were sitting right there where she’s sitting, just finishing first grade. 15 years!!? Same school, same teachers, same church, same songs..
