    I wish the Color Exhibit would come to Boston Massachusetts. Looks So Awesome! I would love to be pen pals with other readers of your blog. That would be so much fun. Your blog is so wonderful! Thank you.

  • Rebeca

    That dinner setting… wow, so beautiful! And Color Factory looks supremely cool, I could see myself losing my mind (in a good way) there. Your Sunday pictures are a favourite part of my morning. :)

  • Autumn

    These posts are one of the highlights of my week. I love seeing the world through your eyes. Thank you for sharing your captured moments and for putting good energy out there!

    I would be game for a pen pal club!

  • Katerina

    I come to your “everyday life” posts to travel a bit. Usually reading while procrastinating from doing work. So it was very inspirational to see your note about creativity!
    PS. What an amazing exhibition! I wish I was in S.F. now so I could go there

  • Anna

    That zucchini french bread pizza sitch…OH MY GOD. So going into the dinner rotation! And, #penpalclub sounds fab.

  • Cari

    I’d love to be part of a pen pal club
    Also, just got home from weeklong “vacation” with a teething toddler. When I saw “being a mom is the hardest thing I’ve ever done” I burst into tears. Right there with you girl❤️

  • Kimberly

    This post gets more gorgeous every week. Definitely a yes on the pen pal club.

  • Emily

    That first photo is beautiful. What a lovely night/space to have dinner! I also love the Cloth & Flame table setting and the decor/bed/cat.

    Pen pal club sounds fun! I (finally) wrote you back…am hoping to get better at this!

    Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. :)

  • ELLEN

    What a fabulous week!!! Outdoor dining with Cloth&Flame, an amazing experience! The Color Factory is beyond belief and the photos of Cooper are spectacular! Your cats are so photogenic – they pose like professionals! Zucchini pizza, yes please! Your suggestions for the week are inspiring and I’m going to try each one! Your niece is beautiful, college bound is a real milestone! Thank-you for this wondrous Everyday Life!!! P.S. A Pen Pal Club takes me way back, fantastic idea! Too many exclamation marks?

  • Marine

    YES. YES YES YES. Pen Pal Club… sign me up!!!!! Let’s make it happen! I feel like the easiest way to do that would be to start a facebook group? Maybe one of those private ones… then people can say a blurb about themselves and people can contact each other for addresses? Or you could randomly pair people together. Whatever – it NEEDS to happen. I love the idea (duh, obviously!)… I’ve had my pen pal for over 15 years, and we’ve never met, and it’s the most wonderful relationship.

  • Sarah

    I would definitely be in a pen pal group. I am currently in one that has a month theme and pairs writers that want to participate then you aren’t obligated every month.

  • Gillian

    Love love love a penpal club! :)

  • Rachel

    I’d love to join the pen pal club!

  • Steffi

    I’d love to join pen pal club, too! :)

  • Kimberly

    Pen pal club!! Yes please :)

  • Tiffani Hudson

    I love the idea of your pen pals becoming pen pals. Maybe you could match us up.

  • Heidi

    Yes please, pen pal club! Also I love the word “Fondoodles” on that chocolate brown pencil.

  • Abby

    Yes, pen pal club sounds amazing!

  • Sarah

    I would like to be part of your pen pal club, I love your blog and use your recipes regularly. I need some inspiration as I’ve recently gone through a family tragedy. I would love an outlet and a new experience.

    • Tracy

      Thank you, Sarah. I am so sorry about what happened to your family. You’re in my thoughts!

  • Tina

    I would totally be in a pen pal club!

  • Lisa

    As usual, this is totally inspiring.

    But as always, one of the joys of this series is that you can convey emotion through your photos. This week’s set made me want to check-in with you. How are you holding up? It’s hard to feel low or challenged in the summer at times, since the world is telling us to savor every moment. Maybe I’m totally off base and you’re slaying things, but if not, know that there’s someone who is thinking of you and hopes you’re taking care of yourself.

  • Jemma
