    As always: So full of life and cheerful and poetic. And your mom has inspired me because just these past couple days I have been thinking that I need to switch it up for my brain a bit more and I should start doing crossword puzzles or one of those brain-teaser problem books. I am doing it!!! Thanks Tracy’s mom!

  • mariah

    It’s so funny to see Casey in pictures! I feel like his presence is always there, but an actual face is a rare find!

  • meg

    LOVE these! Tahoe is so wonderful…it looks like an amazing time πŸ™‚

  • Ellen

    The mere concept of putting an egg on leftover pizza is enough to make me get up in the morning. Or as chance would have it, stay up even later tonight:)
    Oh, wait, I don’t have leftover pizza. Time to make pizza.

  • Bri | Bites of Bri

    This looked like perfection. Ahhh, summertime.

  • Amielle

    Your week looks like what mine did while I was at home and all of a sudden (well, not ALL of a sudden), I’m missing having BBQs and going to the lake and campfires. Looks like you all had a fantastic week!

  • Hilary

    Might I ask what those little cardboard cutouts are behind you in the car? haha πŸ™‚

  • Jessica Griffin

    I have a feeling your mom’s green salad is a glorious thing!

  • Jessica W

    Your website is such a breath of fresh air. I love these weekly pics!

  • Laura

    LOVE this post. Thank you for sharing those family moments. It’s nice to “get to know you” in a different way. Heading to Tahoe for a date-camping trip and your pictures made me even more excited.

  • Bea @ Bea's Bites

    I thought you wrote, “Me and my loaves”… you know, because bread = love? Haha, wonderful photos as always.

  • tara

    What a fun-looking trip! That’s hilarious that you end up grilling. What the what? πŸ™‚

    Beautiful, beautiful photos!

  • Janet Hale

    I just have to take the time to finally let you know just how much I enjoy your Friday and Monday posts. Not saying the others are not worthy of enjoyment it’s just that these two I really settle into and take the time to fully enjoy. As for this post I have to say you outdid yourself in my eyes. I finally got the opportunity to see your other half Casey. Boy between the two of you I can see why your son is so stinkin’ cute. And Lake Tahoe is such a picturesque place however you made it more fun by adding your own style to it. Thank you Tracy for sharing!!

    Looks like you guys had a great time in Tahoe! Isn’t it crazy how much flowers can brighten up a space?!?
    Also, Cards Against Humanity is my favorite gave evvvvver, never played with the fam though, you are brave

  • Amy @ Thoroughly Nourished Life

    It looks like you had a great holiday Tracy! Those pictures of the sky are amazing and all the pictures of your yummy family dinner looked awesome too! My boyfriend and I are heading away for a midwinter beach break this week and I can’t wait for some cocktailing, some beach hiking, and some gorgeous sunsets with wine πŸ™‚

  • Janet

    That photo of pine-coned makes me cringe – those are bad to step on barefoot which I seem to have done often. They come in via the dog or on the bottom of our shoes. Then barefooted I step on them or in socks only (winter). That stuff is so hard to get out of the house.
    Yes I do live in the mountains of CA.

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Loved this week’s pictures. Your Tahoe getaway sounds like bliss, it looks like you were so deep in the pines! I’m sending this to my mum as inspiration to take a trip together. I’m planning a dinner with my parents & brother next weekend to say thanks for stuff, definitely playing cards against humanity. I’m scared/super pumped. x

  • Bethany

    Oh I love Tahoe! Your beautiful pics are now making me itch to get up there one more time before the littles start back to school!

  • Ella

    My dad looked at this post over my shoulder and we were both so impressed with your photography this week! He’s heard me listening to the JTB podcast and sometimes listens with me when we’re cooking. He was surprised to see what you look like (“she sounds like a Joy and Joy sounds like a Tracy!”), haha! Looks like you had a great time. Can’t wait for the noodle recipe!
    Have a great week+thanks for sharing these beautiful moments πŸ™‚

    I so enjoy your photos. I would LOVE to know how you organize and store them. I’m just a mom photog but I’m trying to figure out how to store and organize my shots. I’m figuring I’ll do double duty with a drive and cloud solution but I’d love to know what you do.

  • stacey

    YOU HAVE YOUR MOM’S HANDS. Lucky lady!

    • Tracy

      They’re half my dad’s (they’re LARGE) and half my mom’s πŸ™‚

  • Millie l Add A Little

    Thats life… perfect yummy photos!

  • Jessica @ Living La Vida Holoka

    I’m allergic to chamomile, too. I found out in a scary way by trying a cup of chamomile tea. As soon as I put it up to my mouth, I had a serious allergic reaction. It sure is pretty though when it’s not trying to kill us! πŸ˜‰

  • Jen

    I love your blog. Seriously one of my very favorites.:)

  • jackie

    Do you ever worry about ticks or bedbugs when you travel. Im always so scared to stay at a cabin or hike for that reason

  • em

    what kind of nikes are those? i adore the color!

  • Renee @ Awesome on $20

    I like the person who just had bacon and toast for breakfast. That’s what I’d have. πŸ™‚
