My Everyday Life: Week 33

Here’s what this past week looked like: My Everyday Life Week 33

This week we’ve been on the road! My family blew out the last week of Summer vacation on our yearly trip to Tahoe.

This was our first trip to Tahoe without my Mom.

She would be happy that we’ve carried on the tradition, I’m sure.

Been reading You’re on an Airplane by Parker Posey while on this trip.

I’ve been staying off the computer to give my brain a reset.

We’ve been going out to eat & eating at home. I’ve had fish tacos twice this week.

Was awesome having my Dad drive us around in a boat again. Felt like childhood. My Mom never liked when he went fast so it was weird to not experience that.

    As always, such lovely photos. The water at Lake Tahoe looks amazing! Thank you for always inspiring me to take time to look around and really “see” what is around me.
    Happy Birthday from a fellow Leo!

  • Mollie Kimmel

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Love the last shot of you. These photos are beautiful and so much joy and happiness. Thank you for being vulnerable and sharing your grieving process. I have experienced a lot of loss this year, and you truly help me feel not so alone and are a great reminder to find the beauty in every moment. XO

    Thank you for always inspiring me! I have added Lake Tahoe to my “must see” list. And thank you for sharing your traveling experience with us! Happy Birthday!

  • Kaye Berman

    What a wonderful week! That house you all were in is amazing…and those views! WOW! Happy birthday from a fellow Leo (July 24). Love my birthday in the summer because of so many reasons – peaches, corn, tomatoes being some of those reasons! Thanks for your photos and inspiration!

  • Vickie

    I found you recently through the article in Better Homes and Gardens, and you’ve quickly become one of my very favorite bloggers! Your photos are amazing, and I want you to cook for me! No joke – they inspire me to cook. And the scenery at Lake Tahoe is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your week and belated Happy Birthday!
    P.S. I’m old enough to be your mom!

    • Tracy

      Thanks, Vickie! I am so glad you found me and I’m really glad you’re here xo

  • Jean

    What a way to see out the summer and celebrate your birthday! 39 looks pretty darn good on you, Tracy! Hope you carry these good vibrations through the whole next year. Thanks for sharing all these moments.

  • Michele

    Love all your photos as always! You are an inspiration to so many of us, thank you!
    The house in Tahoe is so lovely, is it your families’ home, or did you rent it? We are looking to do a family reunion there next June…any particular areas that you recommend? Thanks!

  • Chloe Anderson

    Happy birthday Tracey! I just love your everyday life pics and write-ups. Your holiday house looks AMAZING. And I wanted to say how lovely your dad looks – fun, sweet-natured, wise and gentle – the perfect dad šŸ™‚

  • Lindsay

    Happy Birthday! What a beautiful trip. I always love these posts that you do and was paticularly inspired by this one. Any chance this is an Airbnb rental? If so, would you mind sharing the house details?

  • Melissa Lee

    When I see these pictures and really feel your joy, I get tears of happiness in my eyes for you! Thanks for sharing your life and taking time to bring inspiration to others!

  • Sarah

    I grew up in Tahoe (Tahoma) and used to work at the private beach right next to Sunnyside for a couple summers! Now, I live in the Bay Area as well so I can relate to getting up there to relax and detox! That house in Donner is amazing!!

  • Sara

    I am just now catching up on your blog, as my weekend treat! (I’ve gone back to work for the first time in seven years….and now as a mama. Free time has shifted) Happy, Happy, Belated Birthday!! 39 looks beautiful on you.

    I’m a long-time reader (and still need to send you some mail!) and for some reason this post made tears jump into my eyes. It was the pic of your dad peeking out from behind the boat. Just made me cry. Seeing your family love each other well and still look for the richness in life, while missing your mom, has touched me.
