    Hi Tracy,
    Enjoy your blog so much!
    You had library on your summer bucket list:
    The SFPL is having an exhibit on Calligraphy at the
    main library called “Kalligraphia XV” that might interest you.
    Hope you have a GREAT summer and have lots of summer FUN!

    You’re my kick in pants-move it – get things done-person.

  • Kristin

    LOVE Cooper’s afro shot. Gorgeous!

  • Sara Reynolds

    Anyone else have to play Tyrone by Erykah Badu? Can’t just be me!

  • Jenn

    Having a 5 year old and toddler plus a summer bucket list this year is just making me feel like the bucket. I had such high aspirations after a really long winter indoors, but we’re kind of flopping. Isn’t it hard to prioritize FOMO versus actually living in a clean home with semiroutinely bathed children and a little sleep now and again?

    I decided to still keep the list posted in the end. Dreams can go beyond this chaotic season of life I’m in right now. Gotta learn to be ok with that.

    • Kelly

      Yes to this Jenn! Every evening I’m torn between wanting to sit outside with a drink while my 2 yr old runs around enjoying long summer evenings versus ensuring the 20 different pre-bedtime things (bath, toothbrushing, learning to use the potty, etc) are completed so she stays on routine, remains reasonably clean, and gets to bed before 9. No good answer, But, my gut says enjoy the summer evenings. 🙂

      • Tracy

        I thought the same thing last night. I’ve been wanting to be outside for so many months- in the evening, listening to nature while I unwind. I was frustrated that we aren’t making it a nightly thing and then I realized that if I want to do it, I should just do it. If you have the impulse and remember to, go outside! Even if it’s for a few minutes. Carve that space out for yourself if you want it!

    • Tracy

      Every season is different.
      The goal is to set realistic expectations for yourself and don’t beat yourself up over not accomplishing things.
      There are small victories every day. There are so many beautiful things to be thankful for.
      Find a space for yourself, even if it’s 5 minutes!
      And writing a list means you’re thinking about things. If it doesn’t happen this summer, at least you have a foundation to start from next. Dreams take time to build!

    Evening…I kept staring at your photo with you and your Dad….just thinking about if I EVER did something like that with my Dad. Nope. He died at the age of 52…I was 23. I always wonde,r what he would of looked like now, with white hair, etc If he would of been a better parent, as he aged? Doubtful. I feel sad every Fathers Day..I didn’t have a great Dad. However, my mother turns 89 Saturday. And she is the BEST. She has vascular dementia….I wont go on, but I do appreciate you always saying if you have a senior parent, TAKE PHOTOS– I never do ever. But I am starting to, because I see my mother slipping away slowly. thanks for being inspiring! M.

    • Tracy

      Thanks for your note, Mari.

      I’m lucky that my dad doesn’t mind being in photos.
      I didn’t take too many pictures of my mom because she hated having her picture taken. She REALLY hated when I put her photos in black & white too. She was always self-conscious about it. Wore her sunglasses a lot in photos. The last year of her life, she started doing silly things and let me record her on video. Seeing her in action, being herself was probably the biggest gift she could have given me. I knew she changed her way of operating on purpose so I could remember her that way.

      Now my advice is to MAKE VIDEO!
