My Everyday Life: Week 21

Here’s what this past week looked like:

I was in New York & Connecticut this week. Visiting my grandma & family.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I traveled with my dad. It was just us. It was so much fun road tripping and flying with him.

We listened to oldies music and routinely smiled at each other.

My cousins house is one of my favorite places on Earth.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Good morning.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Watching the shadows dance on my arm.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Coffee and this. I can’t wait to bring Casey & Cooper here.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Dock cat. Yappy little thing.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

This is Brody. He’s a Leo.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

This is Gypsy. She’s afraid of gates. I got to take her on several walks.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Lush.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I want one of these trees.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Make a wish.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Sitting in the backseat with my grandma. She was telling me this story of how she wears sunglasses where she lives and all of the ladies wanna know where she got them and how much they cost and she tells them, “You can’t afford them. Mind your own business.”

She’s in her 90’s and she’s still a firecracker!  I enjoyed watching her flirt with waiters, make babies smile and was so proud of her when she reached over and stole a few of my fries. I’ll never forget how she shouted I LOVE YOUUUUUUU to me as I was leaving.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

She even told my brother that she liked his fancy slippers. HAHAHHAAAA.

Sorry I ate these peanuts in your guest room, cousin Elaine.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

ITALIAN FOOD!!!!!

My Everyday Life: Week 21

My dad and I drove waaaaaaaay out of our way for frozen yogurt.

We were rewarded with peanut butter flavor!

Our favorite.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

We were spoiled by good food.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Chicken & escarole soup.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Foggy/misty/morning.

 

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Blades of glory.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Perfection.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I miss my Uncle Dan. I could imagine him sitting at the window there.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Dawg.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

En route to Grand Central Station. This guy asked me if we were on the right train.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Sometimes I think about how nice it would be to have a train commute. You can totally just zone out, listen to a podcast, surf the net. The time feels kind of indulgent. But then again….it’s commuting and you just want to be home.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Caught my eye.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

There was so much movement going on at Grand Central….this scene was a breath of fresh air.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Rooftop drinking.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

From my brother’s building.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

THE VIEW!

My Everyday Life: Week 21

AT NIGHT!

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Someone do it.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Post sushi walk.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I don’t even know.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Breakfast by myself.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Guard dog. Protecting a dry cleaners.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

And we’re the three best friends that anybody could have….

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Bumper Sticker Wisdom.  Wine applies to this rational as well.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I look for little reminders and things to think of while I’m out. Traveling makes you more of an observant person because you don’t have all of the distractions of home. This one was good.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I was asked not to Instagram a picture of my Root Beer Float Soft Serve with crunchy cornflakes because it was ugly….HA!  The soft serve was too soft. Still good though.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I <3 visiting New York.  My brother and his wife just moved back there so now I have more of a chance to visit.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Window seat perks. However…when the dude next to you …. in the middle….reaches over and takes a picture of this right after you…. that’s a little awkward.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Back home….a very cinematic breakfast with my boo.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Cherry!!

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Recipe testing.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Very close!

My Everyday Life: Week 21

This baked rice dish was great. Sharing the recipe on Monday.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Practicing crazy hair for crazy hair day.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

Dating my husband.

My Everyday Life: Week 21

I caught his blue eyes in the reflection of a knife.

    I love seeing people with their grandparents. If my feisty grandma is still around, I imagine she’ll be a firecracker like yours. :-) Beautiful week.

    Also, it just occurred to me that this is the first time I’ve seen Casey’s face. Nice to put a face to the man you speak so much about.

  • Lori

    What a fun week! Happy for you

  • Marty

    Loved this post. Wonderful to visit family with your dad. Want some of that granola with berries and yogurt!

  • Donna

    I follow you on Bloglovin and always watch from the sidelines and admire your work. This time I felt I had to say something. Your photography is amazing, just capturing those moments in our every day lives. It just makes me want to get my camera out now and take photos trying to emulate the way you catch the light, the way you compose your photos.

    Also loved the stories of your family. Gotta love family!!

    Have a great weekend.

  • Jenna

    Gorgeous pictures as always! I definitely need to visit Milk Bar soon! Loved your pictures of New York City!!

  • Millie | Add A Little

    Beautiful photos yet again Tracy! For some reason, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Casey but DANG! Him and Cooper look so alike it’s crazy!

  • Kate

    So Brody is a dead ringer for our cat. So much do that my husband saw me looking at the picture and said “what’s Philip doing on a blog?”

  • Kate

    (Sorry, the dock cat.)

  • Giulia

    As always, wonderful photos. Just curious, what part of CT were you in? I was born and spent a good portion of my childhood there.

  • Erin

    Miss New York — thanks for transporting me for a few minutes!

  • Abby

    I heart all of these photos, Tracy! I’m sure I’ve said this before (like a million times), but you have such a gift for capturing beautiful moments – seriously, your eye for loveliness is amazing.

  • Theresa

    As always, your photos are amazing! I’m curious what book you’re reading on your Kindle? Silly question..I know!

    • Tracy

      Yes Please by Amy Poehler :)

      • Theresa

        Thank you so much for answering my question! Yes Please has been on my Amazon wish list since Christmas!

  • Meghan

    Beautiful pictures as always…love the scenes from the train and Grand Central. It does have a bit of romance and calmness to it, but speaking from someone who has had a train commute, at some point, you do just want to be home. I’m still waiting for teleportation to come about.

  • Marietta Cleaning

    What a beautiful house! I’m in love with the guestroom. It’s made with style! Will not even mention the beautiful view that it has. I’m happy for you! :)
