Returning to Roots

I officially gave up on the humidity and heat going on in NYC last week and escaped to the dry mountains of Utah and Idaho for some family time and a little summer reset. Catching up with friends, cruising on dirt roads, going on runs through my old neighborhood, and playing cards with  my family always brings me right back to childhood. My grandpa has a cabin in Idaho that we have visited every year growing up and I cannot get enough of it! Do you guys have a place that instantly wraps you up in nostalgia?

It's so funny to see my photos completely switch from store fronts and skyscrapers to rainbows and wildflowers, reminding me of the balance in my life that keeps me feeling like myself. I think it's so important to give yourself time to get back in touch with your roots and sort of recoup. I always find myself returning to NYC with a whole different energy (and twelve hundred more ideas) after some time away.

This trip was my youngest brother's last summer vacation with us all before he heads off for his mission in Japan. I'm so glad that we all got to spend this time together and share a few more laughs before his time away, he is such a hilarious, spontaneous, and caring brother. Oh, and he jumped over a lit fountain firework that I just so happened to catch on video- scaring us all half to death. 

I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July and you're all keeping cool! We got to watch the Fourth of July parade in Idaho and decided next year we're going to make a family float and go all out with it.. My crazy family is always coming up with something strange to do! What sort of traditions do you do for the holidays?



  1. These photos are beyond words Tessa! They're really, really beautiful and totally capture the environment and atmosphere of Utah/Idaho. I have never been to either of the two state, but just thinking about how sticky, rainy, and glary it's been in NY recently, a trip up west there sounds fabulous. You bring up a good point on why it's so important to have balance in your life. One of the best ways to create balance is to go to new places, or return to old ones in order to get away from the constant buzz of everyday life and be able to refresh you body, mind, and spirit! I hope that when you return to NY the weather is not as bad :) In fact, I'm leaving to go to the country today too!
