My Everyday Life: Week 5

Here’s what this past week looked like:


Can you find the cat?

Hearts on the way to the bank.

Afternoon rainbow.

Pre-haircut. Mirror at work is dirty.

A trip to the Jonathan Adler store.


Watching the sun go down in San Francisco.

The end to a wonderful dinner at Nopa with Gaby, Denise & Dana.

Getting ready for some new artwork.

E? or  T?  ET phone home.

Carnitas taco night!

Which jet is winning?

What’s that dude doing in the red jersey? If you wanna read why I’m in the paper, check it out here.

Cornflakes & hot chocolate.

I made my tuna salad and served it up in lettuce & avocado. YUM.

I made a smoothie to share with you.


Morning, steamy, shower.

Getting ready for Valentines day over here!

Painting on a Saturday. Thanks for the tape/painting inspiration, Caley!

This is how Cooper’s painting turned out.

He was fascinated by my paints. I’ve had them since college.

Watercolor….turned FINGER PAINTS.

What you need when you’re painting with a 4 year old.

Fro-yo just cuz.

Sometimes I just stare into his green eyes.

Headed to lunch with my dad.

Inspired by graphics.

    Great article feature and I’m LOVING your new short do! Which is funny since I’m trying to grow mine out and whenever I see a cute short hair style I think, “Thats so cute! I should cut my hair!” But I’m lazy and long hair is easy for me!

    what kind of lens do you use, out of curiosity?

  • Sarah Stäbler

    I always love your weekly photos, but I find this week’s batch to be so beautiful! Especially that first one – I love photos of reflections because there’s always something that makes them resemble a collage. Lovely. Thanks for sharing your week, & congratulations on your newspaper interview!

  • Kate

    Definitely making those tacos this week!

  • Annie

    Great pics! Noticed the headline on that front page and I live in NH! Didn’t catch that story.

    Another gorgeous week. The article is so cool! Congrats 🙂 I love the washi tape/watercolor idea…going to have to try that with my nephew.

  • Courtney

    I think this was your best Everyday Life yet! So many artistic and poignant pictures!I also like how you had to qualify that one one pic…pre-haircut/dirty mirror. You still looked cute 🙂

  • Carrie

    I love the news article!

  • LBG

    Great pics- Those army man PJs were some of Henry’s favorite- I can’t believe Henry has outgrown them and Coop fits in them! He looks adorable! Time does fly.

  • biobabbler

    Wow, nice article, and how fabulous is the last sentence they quoted from you?

    Bizarre visual thing: your Valentines Day shot (the hearts)? I initially saw it backwards, so I thought it was white icing hearts on a dark background, and was wondering how you’d done that. Next time I paged through (to get to the article), saw that the dark background was the actual dough, and the white hearts were EMPTY SPACES. Trippy.

    Jonathan Adler, too cool. His husband is a riot.

  • PerBer

    congrats on the article!!!! so exciting! you look great!

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Yay, Tracy! Rockstar article there. Love this week’s pics, especially the painting business, Open & the jet plane.

    NOPA is soo good. My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary last year. Such a treat!

    And I want a taco night like that every week.

  • Ashley

    The “T” and “E” are from a running group I participate in. We run in different parts of the city every week and have to find the trail as it’s laid out with chalk through the city. They stand for Turkey and Eagle, and mean the easy route or the hard route, respectively.

  • Sarah @ The Cyclist's Wife

    That hair is totally cute on you!

  • Leslie

    I am loving your hair! I think this is the first time I have seen it from the front. I whacked mine off, too, and I am feeling liberated!

  • Sini

    I love your black cat

  • Carissa

    These pics make me want to try out watercolors! I probably have some stashed away somewhere…maybe a great weekend project.

  • Marilyn

    Tracy!!! I love the article and how cute you look with your short hair! You sure are rocking it out! Thank you so much for being so dedicated to your blog and inspiring so many people near and far!
