Happy Winter Solstice!

Today marks the shortest day of the year, and so the days will start getting longer.

Only a matter of time before Spring returns~!

In the meantime, cold weather means more time spent inside making props and decor, like this glass bottle filled with tiny flowers available in the Metaphysical Blend Shop!

There are tons of bottles, flowers, and leaves hanging around the studio, just waiting to be photographed!

Let’s make the time in the coming days to play and make progress on our projects!

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve photographed flowers…

Colorado has really come alive this Spring as flowers and blossoms have been bloomed all over, which is definitely a wonderful surprise!

Let’s keep our eyes open to the colors around us and enjoy the blooming of Spring.

Warm Winters

The numerous pots around the house with only dirt and withered leaves will tell you that I’m not that great with plants.  Dried flowers are fragile, of course, but still beautiful.  And they can’t die twice.

You can find dried flowers at craft stores, and sometimes at thrift shops, but of course the most fun way to get a collection is to go out and pick your own.  You can even press them in a book and frame when dry.

Whether we’re able to care for living plants, or can only handle the dried variety, let’s bring the beauty of nature indoors to keep us a little warmer this winter!

New Year | New Routine

Backlit Petals

I hope everyone is not only well, but excited about the new year!  We have a lot to look forward to, and hopefully we have some goals to work towards, as well!

Whether we’re putting things in motion to start a new job or new career, picking up a new interest, or dedicating more time to our passions, let’s give it all we’ve got; keep a smile on our faces, and gratitude in our hearts~

I want to thank you guys again for helping make this past year extra special!  In the coming year, I hope to improve my photography, experiment and practice new things, and continue to share with you all!

 

As we move forward into the new year, Roman Leaf will be updating three days a week, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  The schedule may continue to change and evolve as time goes on and needs/goals change, but this new routine feels like a good fit.  With fewer updates, I hope to bring you all better photos, though of course I’m still up for sharing my mistakes!

These days will be the primary posts, so any posts with photography centered around DIY/handmade, minimalism, food, decor, etc. will be extra posts that week.  When things start to fall into place, non-post days will probably be when other sites like DeviantArt and Tumblr are updated.  Probably..

Thank you guys again.  I wish you all the best, and look forward to exploring the new year with you!

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Holidays are upon us, and hopefully we’re all able to get ourselves cozy to enjoy what we’re grateful for!  Let’s always remember the beauty of the little things in life, those things we often overlook.

Bite of Fall

Today was a gorgeous day, and also the first day with a bite in the air.  Fall is on the way!

Definitely looking forward to the cooler weather as well as the changing leaves this season!  Although surrounded by mostly pine trees, there are also a few aspen trees that will soon be a beautiful gold.

So many different views to photograph and enjoy as the seasons change!

Let’s embrace the beauty of the flowers and leaved trees for the remainder of the season, and embrace the changing temperatures that signal another year passing!

Wishes for all to have a warm cup of tea or coffee when there’s a bite in the air.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Breathe | Purple Petals

In a few days we’ll be headed off to our new adventure, so starting today, posts will be once a week on Thursdays until we get set up at our new home.  The regular posting schedule will return hopefully by August.  I can’t wait to show you the different landscape of our new home!

With things flying by, it’s easy to feel like we have no control.  And even with things changing, we can feel tightly trapped.

Let’s breathe, remember that everything will work out, and that obstacles are just steps in the journey.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
