Today we are going to the mökki to celebrate the Midsummer.
(That's quite a funny Finnish word, even more funny when you hear me trying to pronounce it well.)

I already introduced you to the mökki shower in this post but let me tell you a bit more about it.
Mökki literally means summer cabin in Finnish. However, the "summer" part is a way to speak, just take a look at this picture taken in the "summer" cabin last year:

That is me swimming in our mökki's private beach. (Yeah, that is not Photoshop, the sea really gets frozen in winter) 

It kind of looks a bit better during the summer.

It's located on an Island in the Finnish archipelago (a.k.a. in the middle of nowhere).
I will be enjoying nature and quietness until Monday: reading, getting bitten by mosquitoes, going to the sauna, watching the midnight sun and putting my Mona-Lisa-smile - which I have pretty much mastered with the years - while I pretend to understand what people says (I will be the only one out of 20 people that do not speak either Finnish or Swedish, Yaaay!).

I promise to write the mökki report when I get back.

And now the random part of the post, which has nothing to do with the mökki, but you will have to live with it:

Today is the birthday of a very special friend and I would like to take the chance to shout "HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!" out loud. Did you hear it?

I wanna dedicate this song to you and here are your birthday cookies:

They don't look so good but they taste great, I promise

Close the eyes, make a wish and blow out the candle. Ready? Good.
I hope you have a magical day (and a magical year), may all your dreams come true!

Ok, now you come here before I go to the mökki and eat your chocolate cookies, but hurry up! otherwise I will eat them... (modesty apart, they are one of the best cookies I have ever made)

Lots of happy kisses to you and everybody out there!

See you next week!
