Last Friday was my sister's 20th birthday. We celebrated just like we (almost) always do: with strawberry cake fika on the glass veranda at our summer house, various parts of the extended family sitting around a long table and the roses on the outer walls as a gorgeous backdrop.

I fredags fyllde min syster 20 år. Det firade vi som vi (nästan) alltid gör: med jordgubbstårta på glasverandan i sommarstugan, med delar av släkten runt ett långbord och de prunkande rosorna som bakgrund.
