Heavenly Light | First Snow

The first snow atop Pikes Peak from what feels like forever ago, probably around late Summer!

When you’ve got thin clouds overhead and snow on the ground, you’ve got a good chance to enjoy that ‘heavenly glow’!

As the temps fall, let’s remember to dress warm, keep camera batteries close to body-heat, and most of all stay safe!

Plenty of warm tea, hot soup, and layers!

Patch of Light | Devil’s Playground Trail

Walking along this forested trail on Pikes Peak definitely brought back memories of the forests in Pennsylvania.

This gorgeous patch of light was captured just off the Devil’s Playground trail, a hiking path up the western side of the mountain.

This trail definitely warrants a return visit, perhaps with the goal of getting to the summit, or at least the tree-line!

Let’s keep exploring.

Start Now | Into the Storm

Life it too short to wait for things to be ‘perfect’ before starting something.

Let’s not wait for a steady job that’ll give us vacation time to take a vacation.  Let’s use that one day off this week to go somewhere, whether just in town or some hours’ drive away.

Let’s not wait to have the highest quality supplies to start creating, but start working with what we have now.

Let’s not wait for certain circumstances to start living the life we want.  The life we dream of isn’t going to just happen, it’s something we have to work toward little by little, day by day.

So let’s stop waiting for the life we want, and start building it right now.

What do you want to do?  What do you dream of?  What small step can you make today to start living it?

Whatever it is, let’s start moving forward and making it happen!

Pikes Peak | Road Trip

Today was the first real road trip in what feels like forever, and it was just what was needed!

Fresh mountain air, bright sunlight, and tons of gorgeous new views to take in was a wonderful treat!

It was great to see Pikes Peak from a different perspective, and I can’t wait to get back up in the mountains to take advantage of dusk light and extra time to get out of the car!  Perhaps this Fall?

Let’s enjoy our everyday views, but remember to get out and travel once in a while, if only for a few hours.

Kindness is never wasted, even if shown to those who may not notice or return it.

Let’s always be kind to others, but let’s also remember to be kind to ourselves.  Let’s give ourselves love and acceptance, so that we can better love and accept those we meet in life.

Much Love,

Roman.

Let’s make time to immerse ourselves is what brings us the most joy and hope, be it a quiet read on the porch, time with loved ones, or a hike among the hills and mountains.

Spring in the Rockies

So it’s Spring here in Colorado!  Although sprinkled with beautiful warm days, half the year is still a long time to have cold conditions when you’re a lover of warm weather!  At least we’re able to enjoy a great amount of sun year round.

Cold weather has made getting outside much harder.  Though, since spending more time in nature is a major goal, it’s definitely time to find more weather-appropriate clothes.

If we find ourselves avoiding the outdoors during Winter (and Spring), let’s get ourselves to the thrift shop to find some proper boots, coats, hats, and gloves, so we can bundle up and stay warm during this beautiful season.
