A month in photos {January 2015}

Welcome to share your month in photos!

I wish I could say January was about new beginnings, jolly days and breezy moments.
Instead it was... boring? Yes, but when these short dark days bring thoughts of gloom, I actually find some comfort and insight in my boring. Boring is good. What would be safer than boring?
My dear January - thank you for being boring 

This is my January favorite!

What was your month like? Show me in pictures and link up your month in photos below!

January days...

See, I made a post! I apologize for not showing up more often nowadays. It’s just that I haven’t had much to blog about and I’m still lacking a little inspiration… which does not mean I wouldn't take pictures. I shoot daily and sometimes share on my Facebook page, so if you wish you can follow me there! 

I think we'll all ride through phases of creative lulls and peaks, but sometimes, I worry about not having eager to blog, share or shoot, ever again. And as saying this I also know this happens with a camera, as in life, too. This is just how it goes. I still hope to see you here (or on Facebook) even I’m not as scheduled as I used to be.

But I will be here every last day of the month and I invite you too! I invite you to join me in my month in photos project next year! I'm having a linky party on the last day of every month to share your month in photos - preferably in collage but any other way is fine too. You can use my template if you wish – download here! To see more of my templates, visit my Template Shop.

So, I should go outside and snap in order to get something  for my January collage ;)
We've been spending time mainly indoors and I think these lines speak the best...

Love grows best in little houses,
with fewer walls to separate.
Where you eat and sleep so close together,
you cant help but communicate.
And if we had more room between us,
think of all we’d miss.
Love grows best in houses just likes this.

Here are some portraits that came to exist because of grey and cold January days inside our little house.
