    Your Everyday Life series are wonderful, I look forward to them. My mom passed in January and following your observations on grief this year (along with your helpful links) have been such a support! My mom loved Dansk, too : )

    Dear Tracy,
    your cookie decorating party looks wonderful! We’re having a cookie baking get-together this week with kindergarden-friends and I’m looking forward to it 🙂
    Also, the picture of the light and shadow stairs is so beautiful. And I’m so happy for you that you got to see some art. This time of year is so busy – it’s all about balance!
    And your moms orange purse ist wonderful!

    I’m inspired to bake cookies with my son now! 🙂 I’m trying to think of fun and easy traditions that I can start for us to do every year. I think decorating cookies is a perfect start.

    Also love the art, pancakes and that sassy ‘o’.

    xo, Victoria
