When you find out your pen is not waterproof.

Real life means standing on a table to get the shot you want.

Whenever I take a picture with Cooper in it (he’s holding the plate) he tries to nuzzle into me and it’s so sweet but it’s also so hard to take a picture when he does it! I just let it happen because it’s so sweet.

Spritz me.

Talking about inside pockets of blazers with new people.

Introverts don’t like small talk. We talk about important things like pockets in jackets.

HA.

Feeling like my shoes aren’t that colorful in comparison.

Sorry about that, Mom.

Things I see in grocery stores.

And then I take pictures of what I see and people think I’m weird.

Being in the grocery store feels like being an art store when you’re a food photographer.

Zen garden progress.

I put kimchi furikake on my eggs this weekend.

It was good.

Friday I went to Target with Caley and we walked the aisles giggling like we were in 7th grade again. I didn’t capture a picture, but it was one of the highlights of my week.

I cleaned up my office this week. Happy about that! I share the before and afters on my instagram stories lately.

    I have always admired your dish towel game! Would love to know where you’ve snagged some of your favorite dish towels. Thanks!

  • Andrea Jenkins

    I just always, always love these posts.

  • Shelley

    I LOVE your cats! They are beautiful. Can you tell me about the pinkish pen you show in one of your pictures?

  • bonnie

    you remind me of audrey hepburn in roman holiday in your striped dress after the stranger tells you the joke to make you smile. lovely!

  • Bettye L Rainwater

    In the late 60s/early 70s my family and my aunt and uncle had a restaurant in Los Angeles called The Miracle Steak House. I still have one of the paper menus. A T-bone steak was $1.59!!! And therein began my love of steak.

    That lonely tomato’s name is Bettye.

    Always interesting when animals start doing things they never used to do. I guess people do that, too…but it’s not as interesting. It’s usually annoying somehow.

    “The trick to getting a good smile is to ask strangers to tell you a joke while they are passing by staring at you WHILE YOU ARE HAVING YOUR PICTURE TAKEN.” What a great tip! I always have men trying to jump into pictures with me. REALLY weird.

    “This cat is named Rama.” His full name is Rama Lama Ding Dong.

    Have a great week!

    I love your grocery store list template. I would totally buy that in Etsy, either as a one off or as a digital download. Happy birthday month!

  • Caroline

    Follow up post: thanks for posting the link to Mary’s Pizza Shack. I looked around the restaurant website and read a bit about Mary Fazio, Then I Googled her name and recipes, hoping to find one or two and I found a link to a cookbook coming out in April 2019. So great!

    Can you post details about the blazer with all of those awesome pockets?

  • Kristin

    Do you take most of your everyday life photos (especially ones in public places like grocery stores) with your phone or with a camera? I’m trying to get better about taking my mirrorless out with me and snapping away, just to get used to it (and get better pictures), but it seems so intimidating for someone who hates being looked at! Any advice for getting over that hump?

    • Tracy

      I use my phone most of the time now because it’s always with me. I don’t like lugging my camera around and it’s also super obvious when I am taking photos. You have to be very intentional about bringing it, and I usually spare the weight in my bag for other things. My advice is to practice SEEING. The more you find the little things in your life, the easier it is to capture them. Practice makes better! Look at my photos from 11 years ago and you’ll see that 🙂
