It's a stay-home weekend. Sunny but a little chilly outside, but it feels really great sitting indoor with honey lemon flower tea plus my favorite dessert macarons. The flowers blossom soaking in the tea, petals drifting slowly just like plants in the ocean. It is so pretty that I couldn't resist taking a few shots to freeze these lovely moments.
Photo taken with Canon 6D plus 100mm F2.8 macro lens.
Just want to share some photos of my two lazy fur babies.
They are almost 8 years old, seems like mid-age crisis has not affected them yet. Lazy and sweet as always. :)
Favorite thing to do: napping.
Favorite place to be: anywhere soft, sunny, warm.
Most photos are taken with 100mm F2.8 macro lens, this has been my favorite lens for still objects, close-up photos, even for portraits if I have room to take pictures from distance. Sharp at focal plane, have sort of creamy tone outside of focal plane, which makes pictures look very natural. Absolutely love it.
When he asks for cans. lol.
The winter in Boise has been way too long this year, so we had one week getaway to somewhere warm, Cancun Mexico. :)
We both love water, especially ocean, snorkeling has always been our favorite things to do. This time, we tried something more adventurous, which opened our eyes to a whole new world, scuba diving.
Photos taken with GoPro.
A little town in the middle of the boise national forest, with Payette river passing by, a few houses built next to the river. The view is breath-taking in winter time. Imaging drinking tea by the window, next to a fireplace, reading a book with cats napping on the side, watching the snow flakes drifting down slowly, river with floating ice running through, that would be my dream life.
Happy New Year.
Made this day trip at the first day of this year, feels like a good start of the year. :)
Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do. These are my favorite winter pictures so far, they take me to a peaceful place in my mind.

Merry Christmas! It is a white Christmas in Boise.
Moved here for almost two years, this is the best snow so far. Loving it.
The colors from trees, bushes looks vivid when everything else is covered in snow.
Sharing some of my favorite photos. Frozen trees, roses, and me. :)

First time making a photo calendar with my own pictures taken throughout the year.
Feel very accomplished not only about the calendar, but also the number of places I visited this year. Time to draft travel plan for the next year. hehe.
If you would like to have a copy of the calendar, let me know.

Sharing some pictures of the studios I visited today.
One of my favorite studios is Anne's studio featuring watercolor paintings. Absolutely love every single piece of her work. Pretty sure I will sign up for her next available watercolor classes. :)
Definitely check out her work at: http://aesorensen.com/
Jany's Studio is located in this adorable colorful house. Make sure to visit her garden as well, very well decorated. Isn't this little monk just adorable? love it love it!
And the bird that is probably same as my age... lol...
Impressed by Lisa's creative travel journals.
Julie's oil stick paintings. Bright and vivid color with pigmented paint. Got an artistic picture of the close-up of her painting. :)
A lot more studios need to be discovered.
To be continued... :)
Just to show you how much I love Autumn, decorated my "studio" with leaves I made with felt. It feels awesome working in this room. Hope people walking by would enjoy the decoration too. :)
Last time my husband and I visited colorado was back in spring 2012, when we were both graduate students. We were so impressed by Aspen, the peaceful and cozy little town, beautiful trees blooming with flowers, the amazing scenic independence pass, the frozen lake at over 10,000ft. We love everything about it so much and decided we need to go back again.
Now, over 4 years passed, our life has changed so much, graduated, found jobs, moved from east to west... but luckily our passion towards traveling and photography remains. I feel so blessed that this last-minute-decision trip happened to be at Aspen's prime time. Foliage is at it's peak, snowed the night before which painted the distances mountains with strokes of white color. Everything turned out to be perfect. I wouldn't have expected anything better.
Aspen and Colorado, never let us down, and we will be back.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. I absolutely love every one of them. :)
