My Everyday Life: Week 12

Here’s what this week looked like:

I found inspiration/encouragement while making iced tea this AM.

I borrowed my dad’s umbrella. I might not give it back…

GOOD MORNING from Pinot.

We celebrated our 7 year anniversary this week!

We went back to Murray Circle for dinner.

We hosted a wine tasting group- I’m writing up a post about it. Stay tuned.

This is me getting ready for the party!

I’m trying to eat dinner with less carbs lately. I made pesto eggs, sausage & avocado for dinner.

We had a few warm days this week. This bucket serves as our “pool.”

We also had a crazy foggy morning.

Boot weather one day.

Dress with no sweater day the next!

I wonder if he’ll be an adult who eats with his hands….

Right before I got my hair cut.

Black & white.

The sun going down.

The sun coming up.

This is probably the reason why I’m cutting down my carb intake… Sweet Peas & Shells Alfredo!

Making a birthday cake out of play-dough.

Watching the sun come up…and our last day with blossoms in the kitchen.

A new phase begins! English muffin with coconut butter & bananas.

A nice Sunday morning.

This pizza rocked my world.

Old signs have my heart.

    Beautiful!!! I love it!!

  • Courtney

    It’s a sunny Sunday morning here in Australia and I love starting my day slowly with blog reading. Your posts are always a delight!

  • Kelly

    love your photography

  • mini-cake

    You’re week looks fab and now that we’ve moved to San Fran/Bay area I am no longer jealous of your weather! 🙂
    Question, what is coconut butter?

  • Katy @Katyskitchen

    Oh my gosh! Coconut butter? No more avocado toast? Glad you’re still having avocado though…:) WHERE DO I FIND COCONUT BUTTER…it sounds too amazing for words (hence the caps) . Happy Weekend!

  • Liz

    that photo of your son…the one captioned “the sun going down,” is so beautiful.

  • Ellen

    I sort of hope your son does keep eating with his hands, and would start a trend. But then I totally eat with my hands whenever I can get away with it.
    Happy anniversary!

  • Jaque

    Wonderful photos! Thanks for share your days!

  • snappystreet

    Amazing and beautiful way to capture your every day life… Just stunning!

  • Nodbon {Ana}

    What a nice tea to start the morning with inspiring sentences!
    I like the idea of taking photos of nice moments that could be not “photo moments” but they are and some people just don¨t realise it. Long live small simple moment that can be in fact very big!

    • Tracy

      Ahh! You get it! Thank you for your insight. It’s takes a little practice to enjoy the everyday.

  • Cathrine

    What english muffin brand do you recommend? 🙂

    • Tracy

      The ones I’m loving right now are Bays Whole Wheat English Muffins. They have a few seeds in them. They’re great.

  • Jane M

    Happy Anniversary! Love hosting parties. Can’t wait to hear about yours.

  • biobabbler

    Just lovely, as ever. The words & images flowed especially nicely this week. =) This has become a treat I look forward to every weekend. btw I have white jammie pants w/black polka dots. =)

    p.s. that shot of you and the umbrella is surreal! Amazing. Please keep it! =)

  • Faith

    I really love looking at your pictures. I’m saving up for a DSLR so I like finding inspiration in your blog. Thanks 🙂

    • Tracy

      Awesome! Only two pictures this week were from my DSLR. I took the rest on my iPhone! Crazy, right?

  • Megan | Eats Daily

    Great shot of Pinot! Too funny

  • Leah

    So So beautiful! Every week your pictures get better and better. I look forward to seeing them each week.

  • judith

    I so enjoy viewing your world through your camera lens. Don’t you just love coconut butter? I put a teaspoon in my juice every morning. Just give it a whirl in the blender and you have little chunks of yumminess to slurp through your straw.

  • Tami - Teacher Goes Back To School

    a) your hair is an inspiration. someday i may cute mine short again and will bring pix of yours.

    b) your cat photo is amazing. mine is always on the move. just like my kid. so many blurry photos of both.

    c) the trees outside your windows are making me have house envy.

    d) cooper’s “pool” is perfect!

  • Jenny

    Coconut butter also has me intrigued. You have a really big deck and so much nice weather!
