After living in our house for almost a year (CRAZY) I organized our pantry & tidied it up. Check it out.

    I had to share #7 with my close friends. Powerful is the best word to describe that project. Thank you so much for sharing.

  • Laurie {SimplyScratch}

    that potato au gratin looks freakin’ amazing!

  • Melissa

    I love how you followed up 25 ways to eat better with a link to an amazing milkshake! There’s no chance of #16 happening now… =)

    • Dale

      I had exactly the same reaction as you Melissa 🙂 right after i dried the tears from #s 7 and 8 – very powerful & makes me appreciate this beautiful Friday even more. Tracy I’ve bookmarked a ton of these as usual.

    I, too, am OBSESSED with that Pink song…actually, most of that album. I CAN’T. WAIT. to see her in concert in October!!!! (yes, too many !!!!) Bought my tickets yesterday!

  • Tricia

    We are both obsessed with the same songs. I have been listening to both of them over and over again. Rihanna and Pink sound so good on these songs. Number 7, so beautiful and so heartbreaking.

  • Betty

    Whoa. That photo project left me breathless. So sad, heartbreaking, but powerful. You can feel the love that this husband had (and has) for his wife.

  • Elise

    Tracy, your links had the waterworks going strong today! And I am now listening to those two songs on repeat. The hormones in my 40+ weeks preggo body may be partly to blame for the intense emotions, but I also attribute it to your great finds today. Thanks 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Love your lists!

    xo Jennifer

  • Michelle

    oh my gosh! #7 & #8 were both so beautiful and had me almost in tears! #7 is heartbreaking

  • Gina_AcuteDesigns

    omg, #2 – he is the cutest!

  • Valerie

    #7 – I’m on my lunch break and crying all over the place at work. Thank goodness for waterproof mascara. Beautiful, though, thank you for sharing. It’s good to remember to appreciate the small things and your loved ones.

  • Sera

    Some incredible links this week. Thank you so much!

  • Cortnie

    Ah! Just finished listening to podcast #89 – I was laughing so hard when you were talking about the leg massage with eye contact!!!! NO!!!!! So gross. Don’t go back, Tracy!! The pedicure wasn’t that awesome, right? 😉


  • Katie

    You’re the sweetest 🙂

  • Katie @ Blonde Ambition

    Hahaha, I laughed for a good 30 seconds solid at the kid saying something really poignant and the subsequent text on the screen that said “LUCAS’S WORDS OF WISDOM!!”

    Joy’s happy hour hot fudge sundae was the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a while. Must have a ‘treat yo self’ day soon and, well…treat myself to one 🙂

  • Tieghan

    Love those potatoes!! Yumm!!

  • Jeanne

    Thank you sharing the photo album (7). Wow, that left me speechless. Those photos were so simple and so powerful and really expressed the root of what was happening at that time. I let out a sad, audible exhale when his wife was missing from her bed. I knew her absence was coming but you just don’t want to see it arrive. And to see we are almost the same age. What an amazing husband.

    • Tracy

      I know…you could tell that he really loved & cherished her. Took my breath away.

    Just discovering your blog and I’m loving it so much! I’m a sucker for lists, so I’m here to stay 🙂

  • Jennifer

    I don’t know what first brought me to your blog but I just adore the way you capture every day life and your handsome son!
    Aren’t little boys full of magic and wonder? I wish I could capture my son the way you catch yours every day in magical little moments.

    Just wanted to show my appreciation, hope you’re enjoying Spring!

  • Sandra

    I’m a huge fan of The Oatmeal. Don’t know how I found it, but I’m so glad I did. Have you seen this one?

    I think about it everytime I’m at a coffee shop lol.

    Thanks for the fabulous list!

  • Sarah Theis

    Thank you for referring to me in “your bites around the net.” Your Tuscan Ribolita was absolutely delicious.

    You are pretty much my biggest blogging inspiration, so I was super excited to see it! Thank you for having a great love of food, for being so real, and for being an absolute joy to follow.
