My Everyday Life: Week 14

The guest bedroom (which was my bedroom growing up!) has the most light in the morning. I was the only one in my family who got blasted by the sun. It was quite annoying as a kid but now as an adult, it makes me happy. Maybe that’s why I’m a morning person?

  • Ellie

    Oooh, how do you grow your own sprouts?

  • Beth

    You’ve inspired me to take in the clouds on my way to work. I’ve even started getting up earlier so I can take a few minutes roadside by the river to sip my coffee and breathe it all in. Thank you! 7 years (wow!) and inspiring as always!

  • Traci

    Spouts, raindrops, and kitchen inspiration, what a perfectly inspiring week!

  • Ellen

    I gotta get into this breakfast taco thing-those look great!

  • Amanda

    Such great pictures! Love all the spring raindrops, clouds and puddles!

  • Goreti Tada

    I’m in awe of your pics! Awesome style. Your blog is my favorite. I don’t know how you keep it up with work, being a mom and a wife. I tried blogging for a couple years and gave it up. I guess I don’t have it in me. Looking forward to your next post.

  • judith

    NOOO! Thank you! Of all the blogs I follow this part of yours is the one that I look most forward to every week.

  • Linda

    I can’t express how much I look forward to your everyday posts. You express a beautiful appreciation and gratitude for life’s little moments. These posts are my favorite each and every week and I read a lot of blogs. Thank you for seven years of dedication.

  • Dale

    Love these pics, you have such a great eye. Your blog is one of the ones i cannot wait to read when i sit down with my morning coffee. I adore the one with Jen and the chicken – but OMG her ring! I think it showed up in another IG pic you posted this week – where did she get it?

  • Heidi Jo

    Loved the “alternate universe” picture this week.

    And thanks for the “thank you!” It’s so fun to see your lovely photos every week, and like the others who have already commented, I look forward to these posts the most and am constantly inspired by what you do.

    You rock!

  • Lisa Feather


    Just wanted to say i really enjoy reading your blog. You have a great eye and your photo’s really inspire me to improve my own skills. Keep up the good work. Lisa x

  • meg

    Love it! I like the pillows in the guest bedroom. Fun!

  • Laura @ Me & Mr Jones

    Looks like you had a great week!

    Turkey meatballs are the best thing EVER and can easily eat them every day for lunch for a couple of weeks! I made some with chipotle paste and teamed them with refried beans and a cold bulgar wheat salad with courgette, grilled asparagus, coriander, red onion and a sprinkling of lime juice – delicious!

  • Jane M

    I was in Anthropolgie the other day and I looked at the bowls. Sadly I left without them. Maybe next visit!!!!

  • Erin

    Thank you, thank you, thank YOU, Tracy, for sharing your photos (& more) with us. Your perspective helps fine tune my own perspective. What a gift!

  • Jenny K

    I look forward to your Everyday post every weekend! You have such a great eye for capturing the beauty in the everyday. It is always a reminder to me to pause and at least take in those moments in my own life, even if I’m not able to capture a picture.
    Thank you for your generosity in sharing pieces of your life with us.
    I love the picture of Cooper catching air…MAGIC!

  • Caroline

    Hi Tracy! I looked at those measuring spoons you have on Amazon, and all the comments say the measurements are way off. I love them but this is a dealbreaker – have you noticed this? Thanks!

  • Heather

    This is my favorite series on your blog, always puts a smile on my face, beautiful pictures of nature!! 🙂

  • mel@857notebook

    Your pictures are so lovely. I want to cover my walls with them. Love these posts each week. 🙂

  • Coty and Mariah@quirksandtwists

    I cannot get enough of your ” my everyday life” posts! They’re so inspiring and beyond creative!

  • Diane, A Broad

    Your friend Jen’s jewelry game is ON POINT!

  • Victoria

    Great shots! I love all your rain inspired pictures this week! You need to tell us more about this sprouting business. I love them, but they kind of terrify me. I’ve heard you have to rinse them often and watch for mold/bacteria. What are you sprouting? Ar you only keeping that one jar at a time?

    • Tracy

      Just tried one jar so far and the mix I’m using is a “sandwich blend” which has several different types of sprouts in it. To help ward off bacteria, you’re supposed to do a bleach soak. There were directions on my seed packet that I followed (I don’t have it in front of me right now). It worked! I didn’t get sick 😉 And the sprouts were great!

  • Jessica H.

    I recently started a small air plant collection myself. I am horrible at keeping my indoor plants alive, but they seem like a nice low maintenance plant. We’ll see! Good luck with your plants!
